Beaufort Scale for shedworkers

It will not have escaped your notice that it has been a bit windy out there this last week. So friend of Shedworking cartoonist Colin Shelbourn has kindly put together a marvellous and comprehensive Beaufort Scale for shedworkers who can now officially monitor the weather from their garden office. Without further ado, here it is:

Beaufort Scale for Shedworkers

1. CALM - shedworkers feel invigorated



2. LIGHT AIR - froth blows off coffee on walk back from house

3. LIGHT BREEZE - shedworkers close windows and turn on heater


4. GENTLE BREEZE - leaves blow past the window

5. MODERATE BREEZE - garden furniture tips over


6. FRESH BREEZE - cat blows past the window

7. STRONG BREEZE - difficulty opening shed door to go for lunch


8. MODERATE GALE - gardener blows past the window

9. FRESH GALE - walls shake and Shedworking book falls off bookcase

10. STRONG GALE - loud crash from outside, broadband terminates abruptly

11. STORM - sedum roof suddenly migrates to far end of the garden


12. HURRICANE - garden office becomes airborne

  1. LOL, very enjoyable!

    I often work on a sun-lounger in the garden (sitting with a laptop works really well on one, even when there's no sun)... and have something similar, only it involves levels of disruption to my hair

    The cartoon of the lady with the tea is just so true, I did this only yesterday. Got the office kettle back in use now!
