Well, I hope everyone is ready for the stormy season? I've personally spent a few hours 'storm proofing' our back garden. The unnecessary ornamental stuff that we manage collect throughout the summer (seriously, where does this stuff all come from?) is packed away, the grass has had it's final (hopefully) cut of the year and wheelie-bins are lined up against the house so they don't go flying across the yard!
Where we'd normally leave the cat with access to the garage, we've closed that off. As the weather cools, other furry creatures might see the garage as an ideal place to build a nest out of the elements.!
What I would expect as the wind builds is that there'll be lots more ppl locked out as the door randomly slams behind them. It's definitely worth making sure there's a spare key with a nearby loved one/neighbour, but I'd advise that throughout the year.
