After a very blustery, and wet, drive to work this morning (narrowly missing getting hit by some loose plastic rubbish containers in the road) it's pretty windy out where I work next to Barton. Anyone got it worse?

Yes! It was pretty heavy last night however at one stage it started hail stoning for about 5 minutes. That's when the winds REALLY hit my house hard! It somehow set our family car's alarm off! Waking up this morning, there were bins littering the streets

Well, Whitburn (West Lothian) was hit very badly by heavy winds, we even had a storm last night, kept me awake all night. Our school roof started leaking today! I don't know what the windspeeds were though. Blew open the fire doors which are locked at all times too! And because of the weather, we had a 3 second powercut!
First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

I'm up near Blackpool right on the coast and it's pretty frightening at the moment. There are major works here and a construction company is currently on the promenade rebuilding the sea wall to make it stronger. We have had one or two roof tiles come off too.

It's died down a bit here in Blackburn, still an occasional gust but it was bad last night. Trees down in a few places and a friend had a lucky escape when something was blown on to her windscreen and caused a chip and small crack. Not a nice time to be out and about, let alone flying!

Quoting LGWspeedbird (Reply 17): Tried to meet the PLH-NQY flight and couldnt get the arrival doors open!! Was really bad didnt do my hairstyle any good!
I can imagine it didn't do the colour of the passengers underpants much good for the arrival back into PLH
I nearly took the flight up to London, but considering I eventually found a return train ticket for £50 (others were over £150) I didn't, plus the airfare was about £300, serves me right for booking late!
