I Just wanted to share this with you as it is quite relevant and really does make you think about how fortunate we are.

With all the news on TV lately about the sub-zero weather and the hurricanes that America is experiencing and recent mud slides in the Middle East and South America, we shouldn't forget that UK has its share of devastating weather too - especially the night before last.

Below is a photo illustrating the damage caused to our home down South from the recent storm that passed through.

It really makes you cherish what you have, and reminds us not to take things for granted.

Take care of yourself and be safe.

Was there any booze involved in this perfect storm of yours?

The storm didn't damage your geraniums (pelargoniums) much. They look as if they need dead-heading.

I remember back around 1988 there was a real sevre windstorm in the southern UK that was the real deal. It took down millions of trees, even acient ones. I especially noticed it in the parks in London. So you guys do get some severe weather, but not like our hurricanes.

Now that the storm has subsided, have we safely accounted for all the A.netters down in the Southampton/Portsmouth area?

Saintsman was lucky, but there are others down there I've never met who I'm worried about  Wink

My family live on the Isle of Wight, and my Dad seems to like going about taking photos of these sorts of things. In 1999 (I think) there was a tornado that started in the solent, ploughed through Ryde (my hometown) before striking Selsey where the worst damaged occurred. I seem to recall Patrick Moore lost part of his observatory.

We lost the roof of our conservatory owing to the large hailstones. That was frightening enough as it sounded like a train was coming towards the house - I don't want to experience something *really* severe.

The 1988 thing - no trees left on our street. Power lines down etc. I remember Michael Fish reading the weather, and being quite confident that no hurricane force winds were expected that night. Yeah right.

The storms here in Switzerland can be quite frightening, made more intense by the vicinity of the mountains I think.
