We were wondering whether the Thursday market yesterday might have been cancelled, due to the wind, as was the case on several occasions in past years.
Thankfully, however, it went ahead as planned, using the stalls erected by North Lincolnshire Council.
A spokesman for the local authority told Brigg Blog this morning (Friday, February 24): "We assessed it to make sure it was safe for traders and shoppers and, as the winds didn't seem as bad as forecast, we found it safe to go ahead."
Many twigs were blown off the trees in East Park, adjoining the Tintab shelter, near the Monument. And that means free fuel can be collected today by those with coal fires or wood-burning stoves, if they wish.
We can recall learning about the 19th century Beaufort Scale, almost half-a-century ago.
It is still used today to gauge wind strength.
Geoff "Shoddy" Jarvis, long-serving geography master at Brigg Grammar School, taught us well.
Beaufort Scale 8: "Fresh gale" - results in some twigs being broken from trees, which was clearly the case yesterday.
Beaufort Scale 9: "Strong/severe gale" - results in temporary signs and barricades being blown over.
Beaufort Scale 10: "Storm/whole gale" sees trees broken off or uprooted. A walk through parts of the town this morning didn't furnish any examples of such damage. Nor did Humberside Fire & Rescue Service report any incidents in Brigg yesterday resulting from Storm Doris.
