    Do you really have to? After all, if people can be snowed in, can't they also be winded in?

    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.

    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?
