Today has still been breezy, but sunny. But before that two days of on-and-off very strong winds, heavy rain and occasional lightning and thunder. Went for a walk today in a nearby park - two trees down and scattering of branches.

Conditions yesterday were very hard for the Oxford - Cambridge boat race on the Thames tideway. Some of the water was smooth, but some got quite rough, and they were rowing into the wind. Hard work. The Cambridge ladies nearly sank, but valiantly finished the race.
