The strong winds that have affected the region for a fortnight returned again this morning, after things had quietened down for a few days. Once again the Spanish weather forecasting agency Aemet has got it wrong. They give high wind warnings for days that turn out to be calm, but fail to warn when we get winds that cause structural damage!
At the moment there is no structural damage to the stable, after reinforcement of the roof since the last time we had gale force winds that took the roof off, but there are clearly some donkey mental health issues this morning. I cannot take the donkeys walking because they are too skittish in the wind. The following video shows Rubí going completely bonkers in the wind, running riot and jumping on the other donks. She offered me a flying kick in passing while I was filming this! They have got plenty of room to run around in their field, even if they do not get out for exercise.
Update: Aemet must read my blog. They have issued hurricane warnings now… Luckily that is for the south Valencia region not here in Alicante. But since they are mostly wrong, anything can happen!
