Living in the Pennines we didnt really catch the 1987 storm but had plenty of others.
1:-2nd January 1976,i was only a kid,we lived in a farmhouse at 1120 ft and was awaken in the middle of the night by our parents and told to go sleep downstairs as they thought the house roof was going to be blown off,it didnt but some of the heavy stone ridges and a lot of slates were shifted.
2:-Friday 13 January 1984.We woke up to the sight of one of the farm buildings blown to pieces all the way down the fields,it was very windy and we were supposed to go an an absailing trip at school,i thought it would be called off,it wasnt but calmed down a bit by then.
