    OK I could be totally off the mark here but is anyone actually being affected by this?????

    We were told to expect it today..... I woke to one of the clearest blue skies and sunshine that I've not seen for a long time:rolleyes: and it's been like it pretty much all day....:cool:

    Then we are told it is tonight we should be prepared..... OH has just been outside and said it is very still, clear and quiet... no wind, no driving rain.... nowt....:rolleyes:

    How do they get it so wrong sometimes???

    However, if you are being affected then I'm sorry..... I hope it's not as hideous as they are predicting.... and I guess by morning I too may be eating my words.....:rolleyes::eek:

    It's well and truly here (Devon)! Started about an hour ago, lots of rain and wind, it's keeping me awake and my eldest is up, the cats are in, and it's quite scary! I hate the wind, you never know what damage you'll get up to the next morning!

    How's everyone else?

    The for sale sign across the road fell over into their car - smashed the wingmirror :O

    What you studying Leah?

    This storm reminds me of the 1987 one, i was in my first year at Uni, on a very wooded campus. Loads of really ancient trees were blown down, it was so sad. A few windows in the halls of residence were blown in too.

    OK I take it back... it is chucking it down with rain and quite windy - though not howling gales.....

    Kids just off to school.... eldest gone moaning all the way cos I've made him put a hat and waterproof coat on quote "oh mum, I've just done my hair and my coat is SOOOO uncool....mumble, mumble,blah, blah...)....LOL!!!

    Youngest two can't wait to go and take umbrellas so they can 'fly' to school.....!!

    So glad it's not me out there - OH takes them to school....:D

    Hope everyone is safe and warm and more importantly doesn't loose internet connection.....:eek::D

    I'm in London and it is pouring down, incredibly windy and the thunder is SO loud- not helping me get on with this essay! Our palm tree has been blown over too (don't ask me why we have a palm tree, it came with the house.)
