    After a slight respite for a couple of hours, the winds really seem to have cranked up a notch here once again. Absolutely enormous gusts right now.

    Same here Bish, it seemed to have had a fag break for a bit and now picking back up once again - weirdly though, there's no damage here... then again the fence panels have been left unrepaired (as it'd be pointless) during the whole of this 5-months worth of storms. :/
