Hi all, can anyone explain something i've just experienced please ?

Sat under a gazebo on a nice summers morning just a few shallow cumulus in the sky and very little breeze if any. All of a sudden me and my wife are laughing as we are having to hold on to the Gazebo and the washings virtually being tugged off the line. It was all over in the space of 15 seconds max and now we are back to calm sunny conditions. Our nearest data recordings are at Robin Hood airport in Doncaster where currently on Windmapper its showing variable / calm.

any explanations please as it was so strange and made us laugh ?

This sounds like a small dust devil caused by localised heating in strong sunshine.Dust devils can become large enough to threaten property but this is rare and most are very small like the one you described.
