    What's the damage, pal?

    How did our respective homes, garden, trees, cars etc survive?

    I've noticed one tile on the ground so far (and had to retrieve my bin from a neighbours garden...). If that is all then not bad.

    A fir tree has fallen from next door's garden into ours crushing a fence panel and taking a load of live wiring with it. My other neighbour has his garden underwater and seeping into ours and a very large tree in the midst of it easily in falling distance of the house. Over the road, sections of fence from another neighbour have been shredded and scattered into the pavement and the dual carriageway down the road is flooded and has trees all over it.

    Got off lightly I reckon.

    Not too bad here but did have to brave the rain and wind to secure our fence before it hit someone's car. :S

    One broken fence post, one close boarded panel down and a second has swung like a gate blocking access to our garden. Teenage son and husband going out after breakfast to move the latter so we can see what else is damaged.

    Lots of flooding and trees down locally. Two of son's mates have written off their cars; one drove into flood water. I think he now understands why we refused to let him go to the cinema 4 miles away with another mate driving late last night.

    Got woken up pre dawn by the phone going off. it was the neighbor telling me that we where flooded. What's the damage, pal?-20131224_100108.jpg
    Whilst we where looking at the damage another neighbor had a ivy hedge/fence that had came down. But they where going away and it was blocking the alleyway and had to be moved. What's the damage, pal?-20131224_094245.jpg no before shots but it was about 5ft of ivy/ blocking the way.

    Nothing other than some big puddles here. Had some nice hail an hour ago - wasn't smug at all that mrwITch was out walking the dog whilst I finished off the Christmas bits and pieces in the nice warm house!

    I hope your house survived without to much damage. Thankfully all we got was a bit of wind and that want to strong.
