No its not the curry! Got a call at work today from Geoff to say the wind had blown our garage down. Couldn't get through to the insurance company as there have been so many claims today so I was wondering how many other 'catters have had any damage done?

My "nasty neighbour"'s trendy/naff gazebo took off. It's now lying in his garden with its legs in the air.

We here in the southern US try to limit having our houses blown away to the warmer months, if possible. September's much more comfortable than January if one has to move into a tent.

Saw the Warren Street Station 'Evening Standard' newseller almost lose his head today... the top came off the vendors stall next to him, and blew across to the ES stall. If he'd not just stepped away to greet a friend, he'd be in the hospital now with at best, one hell of a headache. As it was, he was a bit shaken because the bit that blew off the top of the vendors stall was a sheet of metal about 3ft square.

Nothing really obvious blown over, but it was dark when I got home so I've not seen what state the garden is in.

Interesting being in the north spur of a 34 storey building though, with the wind howling in from the north west.

According to the evening news, 25 people died in Britain today from the high winds - 99 MPH. Very unusual. Hope everyone's insurance is up to date.

Cor! It's been bloody awful! I fink we should declare war on someone over this. Loik maybe the USA on account of the global warmin' wot is probably responsible for all this unusual wind. Me Eddie says it's a harbinger of fings to come, that's wot 'e says. 'E always says that. This time 'e may be right!

"It's now lying in his garden with its legs in the air."

Sounds exactly loik wot 'appened wiv Mrs Daltry next door. The wind picked 'er up, poor dear, and frew 'er clean over the fence and she landed on 'er back in me garden and jinxed me wisteria! Bloody 'ell!

I thought this was going to be a thread about Spaw.

Actually folks, it's that nasty comet wot's upsetting all the weather. Never mind that we've got it now and our weather is perfect. Sunny and warm with a gentle breeze.

Just how widespread is this wind anyway? Is it all over the UK?

You'll find the the most severe gusts occurring directly downwind from Olive Whatnoll. My advice? Take cover and do it right quick, and stay indoors until it passes.

Didn't suffer any damage, but boy did we suffer. S & I had to go to a family funeral, two 2 hour train journeys with the Funeral and lunch in the middle. Expected to be home at about 16.00, arrived at 21.50 feeling shattered or some other word beginning with sh....

Side wall of garage completely trashed. Roof somehow still in place, bu don't know how unsafe it might all be. Lovely sunshine today glinting on the broken glass and lighting up the rubble.
Just pleased that nobody ended up hurt.
Quack!

There's a largish tree down at the end of my garden and leaning on the neighbours fence. Lucky it didn't go the other way and end on the road.. Looks like a jolly weekend with a bowsaw is in prospect

Down here in SE London, my neighbours tree decided to once and for all (despite many attempts) to lean a bit too far, and snap into our garden. The fence however, has held out.

My parents and neighbours are in discussions about what to do with the thing. It looks like a little leafy tent shelter. Any tree down the road, and on the common, which was not planted BEFORE the great storm of '87, blew down. The other, more older (and wiser) trees looked on at the whipper-SAPpers shook their leaves in wonder and tutted 'all this fuss for a little gale. I remember......'

Three fences and walls down the road got trees for company, but no serious damage.

On the plus side, finally the metal corrugated sheets laying against a garage hardly used, and which made a noise as soon as a slight gust blew on it, have now fallen down. No more scraping noises in the middle of the night - YIPEE!

We've just finished demolishing our so-called Conservatory (actually a very old and, after Thursday, only partialy roofed lean-to).

Had a call around 3pm on that day to say that 2/3rds of the roof were in the neighbour's garden. Spent the rest of the day rescuing the various items stored in there and trying to ensure that rain couldn't get into the electrics (which have now been disconnected).

It was too old and unstable to repair so tomorrow we start taking the bits to the dump and begin planning what to build in it's place. It's forced me to make the decision about replacing a not very attractive or serviceable structure.

One door closes...... and another gets wrapped around the pear tree!

Part of the Geography block roof at my daughter's old school (just down the road) blew off and landed on the languages block which had, amoung other students, my other neighbour's youngest daughter inside. No one was hurt. Lots of trees were down and bits of tree in the roads. One neighbour's fence down but not much else in the way of damage and no one hurt.

It's stopped raining and the sun came out today.

Somehow I feel good about life.
