      Do you really have to? After all, if people can be snowed in, can't they also be winded in?
      Living in north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep.

          Grammar, Snoop - its "Wound in" - that doesn't look right either

          Horribly windy here last night. Difficult to sleep with all the noise. I wrapped my ears in the duvet and tried to shut it out. Hammering rain too, rattling against the windows.
          Just done a quick walk around and the only damage is a bit of superficial fence screening has blown down. The wire fence behind is intact, that's the main thing!

          Hope you're all undamaged and safe. Still windy here

            I've got a fence panel now loose on one side, with that post at a crazy angle (despite me trying to prop it up last night) and it's still very gusty here - but have to be at dentist by 11am.

              Windy in the night but less so now, I think it sounded worse than it was

                Grammar?
                Wind (the weather word) isn't a verb so can't be changed like flood - wind (up the clock type wind) is a verb so can be changed to wound.
                Blown in doesn't sound right either, although blown home sounds ok? English is weird
                innit?

                  The storm hit here yesterday evening - loads of trees and powerlines down but thankfully I haven't heard of any serious injuries.

                  I ventured out to retrieve my fallen wheelie bins around 9pm and was almost blown over by the wind, it was truly quite frightening.

                  All quiet now, just hope there aren't any more storms in its wake.

                    Intense storm here though out the night.
                    Lost electricity just after 4am....came back on about 20 mins ago.

                    Keep safe everyone!

                      The pronunciation of "Wind" and "wound" varies so much too, depending on the context. I prefer "wined" myself.

                          New fence that my new(ish) neighbours put up last summer hasn’t moved. I’m impressed as the last three installed by so called professional fencers never survived the first gale. The neighbour is a librarian. The next fence along is flapping a bit. The other side of my garden (my fence) installed by my son 5 years ago, hasn’t moved. He’s in IT. Makes one wonder sometimes. Hmmmh.

                          Wind has dropped but still whistling through the house and whooooing down the chimney.

                            It's extremely windy here now.
                            Can't go in the greenhouse, just in case.
                            Stay safe all.

                            And when your back stops aching,
                            And your hands begin to harden.
                            You will find yourself a partner,
