It was blowing a gale for most of the day here on the 29th. Lost the felt off one of our storage sheds in the garden but no other damage. Surprisingly the wind dropped considerably at sunset so I thought I'd observe Venus. The seeing wasn't brilliant as expected but still managed to record some cloud features.
