|The morning after another night of gales finds the village without power once again, and a damp note through the letterbox warns us not to drink the water.
The power went off sometime between midnight and 4am and presumably was the result of a tree down across the lines somewhere.
The tree that was blocking the road north at Brackley (see photo->) last night has been moved. This was a substantial tree and must have taken some clearing.
I can't vouch for the state of the road north of Grogport - perhaps we'll get an update later in the morning - but weather conditions on the higher ground were very unpleasant with driving snow, sleet and hail. The wind appears to have dropped quite considerably though.
