    It's been blue skies with a 'bit' of wind here in Preston however is is starting to get a bit dark now. Hardly any rain at all today, we tend to get off lightly here when it comes to bad weather.

    Popped out at lunchtime to get my lunch... just as well I wasn't wearing a wig! Very wet and windy here in Birmingham.

    The wind here (South Wales) has been nuts. A side panel of a nearby building peeled off and went flying just after lunch.
    Cycling home should be fun.

    I bet David Bowie regrets his choice of suit today.

    You cycle? In South Wales?

    Wherabouts? I'll wager you're not in Bedlinog.

    Sidways hail earlier someone left a door open and the hail piled up in the corner of a corridor - very strange sight.

    Wind is utterly bonkers must be 100mph - I had to actually stop moving and concentrate no not getting blown away earlier some HUUUUGE gusts.

    The windows in the admin office doesn't shut/seal properly, the wind is causing it to make a loud whistling noise when the wind really picks up, i was in there for 15 minutes and it drove me crazy!

    Anyone else remember a 'proper' flood - google 'Carlisle flood 2005' and look at some of the images.
    Strangely, the news/government response didn't seem quite as high-profile then.

    So, for anyone who built in the Thames floodplain (=valley) especially in the last 10 years, very little sympathy.

    Really? It's mental here up the road! It sounds like the roof is about to peel away from the warehouse! Everytime someone opens the office door all the celing tiles take off and rearrange themselves!

    Blowing a gale in West Brom area, seriously concerned the rotten wooden frames holding my 6x2 grid of 2mx1m single pane windows is going to give any second and shower me glass!

    Very windy and rainy here earlier - still quite windy but has calmed down a lot - presumably it is moving up the country
