I can't believe people get excited by these kinds of things..

Guess it's different when like me, I'll be driving a high sided vehicle right on the coast just at the exact time they expect the storm to hit.. hope I survive it, it's a real life and death situation.

Frankly I'm terrified... go to work and risk my life or stay at home and lose my job? Great *sigh*


I was driving up until a couple a years ago. Can you pull the curtains back? Thats what I used to do if it got bad. If I didn't have curtains I'd still go out, then find the nearest layby and phone base and tell them it's too dangerous to drive. That way your on the job and they cant sack you
Only ever had the wheels lift once and yea, its scarey LOL.
Take lots of food, a laptop, and find a nice sheltered layby

Sorry I have no answer for that, yet know how to relax during a power outage by staying focused on the task at hand and attempting to keep joy and a peaceful feeling happening in the face of the storm for my family. During an event like this I do have a hand crank radio which is a great way to stay abreast of the local news. We also have a weather band radio which has a continuous loop of information from the emergency weather bureau. As weather continues to get less predictable in the future it is a great choice to make in having a way to at least know what is headed your way. Could be a good source of income if you were to sell them locally at a good price. Something like this would be a good selling point.

I have neglected this thread since I started it, but I would like to thank everyone for their interest. It's a glorious sunny day here with a nice breeze, yesterday was quite windy and grey but we had lots of fun with our kites in the park, I took the dog out around 2300 last night and it was eerily still in comparison to the afternoon. the weather warnings are quite something to see on the tv, the storm may still pass us I guess we shall just have to wait and see
I will be checking the garden for the anything loose today and charging the batteries on my phones torches and two way radios
hope you all stay safe and alert

Here in the sunny wild west, the winds range from almost dead calm (top branches move a little) to gale, wind blowing towards the east. (Whole tree in motion), we also have rain and sunshine! The glass is rather low and falling slowly about 964 at the mo.

Seems a bit early to be the start of the front, but if it is, Oh dear, think it might be nasty by tonight.

Expect that tent is being put up in the front room, if not, watch out for UFO reports of a giant Chinese lantern making rapid turns! Hehe.

North-East of England here... It's breezy and overcast, but that's our
default setting anyway!


I think we'll miss most of it and Boy In A Dress' folly-cum-shed at the
bottom of my garden will stay intact for another year.
The Man/Girl is peeking through the little window right now -as I type
this.

Keep safe... all of you.

Had a battering of blustry rain and wind in the night but everything hunky dorey still - but it was so loud I couldnt hear the motorway! We have a long line of those tall trees at the end of the road that they like to plant around industrial/farm areas (poplar I think) so hoping they will stay upright. Part of one broke half-way up during the spring winds we had a year or so back (can't remember exactly when)and fell across the road.

I remember the '87 storm and must have been about 11/12 at the time. Travelled back from the south coast with my school friend and stayed at her house that night. We were sad about all the ancient trees that got uprooted. Trouble is now it seems the weather does tend to get exaggerated by our press/reporters - like they are covering themselves so not to repeat it.

Hoping its not going to be too bad - we live in a timber framed house and although we are mid-terrace it still creaks and grumbles. Its probably much stronger than it sounds (and feels) but I expect I will lie awake listening to it.I expect the cat will be sleeping on our bed too - she hates the wind!

Well I hope everyone is ok, we got hardley anything here in Devon few trees down and a shop on the coast had its sign destroyed, apparently a village up the road has flooded so me and the boy are going for a walk that way later if I see any damage will get some photos and post em on here

On a pluss side an old kayak paddle of mine has been lodged down the side of my shed for months, it was by the fence this morning, happy days.

The lack of responses may be a bit worrying, did so few survive unscathed? Or was it a bit of an anticlimax, like it was where I am? Lots of rain, but not heavy, just normal rain. Few leaves off the plum tree but no further damage.

Hope this was everyone else's experience.

I may have over estimated the strong winds that blew onto our UK shores from
the West, I tested my Man-sized kite out today and here I am -bound up in
string with laptop in hand flying towards Norway.

Damn, I should have accessed this site sooner!

Sorry I'm going out of range. I think the worst is over.
