Any damage?

Just wondered if any of you have lost pots, furniture or greenhouses in the storms during the night.

    we've only had one small bin overturned and it has rained. I think it passed us by. I am on the S. Wales coast

    All OK here (Glos/Hrfd/Welsh border) Need to go from Wales over to England across the River Severn today and one of the Severn Bridges still closed at the moment.

    No more rain or wind here than in any normal Autumn.

    It's been blowinghard here in central Belgium for 2 days - very bad for sleeping as my bedroom is at the west end of the house and gets all the noise. 

    The only reason my trellis fence between the veggies and the garden is still up is because it's still tied up like a trussed turkey after the big storm in July which nearly flattened it.   It'll be getting new concrete boots for the posts when all the vegetation dies down either side and we can get to them.

    Haven't yet been out to check the greenhouse which was also damaged in that storm but no new trees down so far.   The paddock across the road is flooding nicely.

    I hope it doesn't get any worse and that there's not too much damage in the main path of the storm across England.

    I can see blue sky on the horizonimage 30mm of rain and a considerable amount down the chimney and on the sitting room floor. New chimney liner a few weeks ago so no soot to soak up the water. I'm not houseproud, as soon as it dries I'll forget it. Garden damage will be assessed as soon as that blue gets here.

  • I'm not at home but just seen lots of pics of trees down in Sussex. Just keeping my fingers crossed I don't have a nasty shock when I get home. Thanks to Chicky I got my pots taken off gateposts image
