Well, it was not widely broadcast on visual media, but a couple of papers covered some of the weirder effects of the weather.
Apparantly we had some small tornado action over some parts of the country, which snapped trees off their roots, and threw them at houses and such
like, and one woman was injured when a tree was thrown into the car she was about to get into, at which point a whirling storm of glass shards from
the broken windows is supposed to have hit her. I have not heard about any deaths as a result of such things as of yet.
With regard to how I personally was effected by the weather event which struck the nation, there was a bit of rain over Bloodstock, and the wind
kicked up a little on Saturday night, through to about lunchtime on Sunday. There was a break of a little while, then a little more rain during some
of the later bands. It did make the ground a little muddy underfoot, and at one point during Saturday the rain came down so forcefully, that
visibility was reduced to a mere ten feet, and conversation underneath the gazebo, which myself and the other Bloodstockers with whom I was camped had
taken shelter, became quite impossible for around five minutes.
Other than that, I felt it was pretty tame, but there again, I was not on the South West coast. Apparantly they got a hurricane force bludgeoning,
but there has been no report of anything lethal or massively terrifying. So in short, some people need some glazing done, broken fences mended, cars
fixed, and wounds healed, but other than that, as far as I am aware, nothing doing dude.
