some quite scary gusts... this is new territory here as we don't usually pick up storm winds with a long southeasterly fetch.. were high up with nothing but Cheshire Plain to the southeast - these winds are insane.. already recorded a gust of 62mph.. Ive heard some large cracks tonight so far and it sounds like a freight train going past constantly!

Just starting up here. SE quadrant is not good for me, too, when the wind is this strong, as evidenced by the detached downpipe that has just come out of its guttering socket and has started a waterfall cascading down the three storey wall.

Getting quite stormy here in Southampton now with heavy rain as well.

The palm trees are having a good thrash out there so hopefully that will clear out any bugs or scale insects.

But at least no chance of any frost,

Nothing out of the ordinary here. I expect a few of these every Autumn/Winter/Spring.

Could hear a banging outside, peering through the swirling debris I could make out the figure of this muppet across the road. He's in trainers on his roof adjusting his tv ariel! Just waiting for the ambulance sirens now :roll:
my name is flounder, but you can call me.............flounder! (or Gary, just don't call me late for dinner)
