Hi i just was interested what every one did, mine is when the trees start to bend
When it is blowing of my toupie. I hate it when a gust catches you unaware frightning. Im waiting for gusts to die down so i can get something done today but its a waiting game spent the morning pacing the floor and looking out the window every 10mins to see what its like out there drives my wife nuts. Oh and discovered this forum inbetween looking out the window.
Welcome seye "When it is blowing of my toupie" is a sure sign for sure
welcome seye, yeh scary when the wind is blowing thats when it is handy having mate to hold ladders.
frustrating when you are ready for graft and you canny get out
When I was trad my limit was 18-20mph, 35mph now in WFP.
i look out the window when i get up across the road and in the field across the road theres a wood, so i look at how much the trees sway and have learnt from that lol when to go out working!
as said theres nothing worse than that sudden gust that blows through you!
welcome seye I look for gust speed as thats the sucker that will take you down
welcome seye, i just get out there an c how its fiels ive had the ladder nearly blown off me sholder b 4 u no when that happens its un safe50 mph tops realy when doing low level trad
not just climbing the ladders in the wind the problem,
carrying the ladders from A to B can dodgey. driving your van when big gust of wind catches you scary ,scary.
stay safe guys & gals
I go by the trees. Another danger is when you go on a garage roof or somet & you leave the ladder unattended & the wind blows it down. Had that once. Luckily it never hit anything.
