Helga is coming for a quick visit.
It is absolutely calm outside, a big part of the sky is still clear but the clouds are coming in fast now and they’ll have even higher speed the longer the night goes. The storm Helga is coming by for short visit tomorrow with gusts up to 30m/s (67,11 mph). The gusts will be as strongest when I’ll start driving homewards after work so guess if I’m happy I have a heavy SAAB 🙂
Saturday will be fairly calm but on the night towards Sunday it will start again and keep on until Monday. The winds will thankfully come from south-west to west so I will most likely not notice much of it here but I will be able to hear it roar. I’m pretty sure trees will fall since they have cut down so much in the forest, most of those trees standing have usually been spared by the gusts from those trees they now cut down and the ground is soft since it never got any real chance to freeze in the forest.
I usually enjoy a good storm when it doesn’t hit my home too hard so I’ll buy something yummy to eat while the winds roar 🙂 I’m glad I have my fire heated stove just in case the electricity would stop working, I know I’ll be warm here in my cottage and I can always cook food too. I won’t have any water though if I don’t have any electricity so I’ll buy a big bucket or something and pour up water just in case. But to be honest, we are seldom without electricity here, not even during the really big hurricanes we had some years ago.
It is time to make something to eat and I think I’ll make some cocoa too, this time of year is cocoa season 🙂
Have a great day!
