Just been out in it walking the dogs, or rather 'flying the dogs' I thought the little one was going to take off like a kite. He kept looking at me doubtfully as if to say, "Mummy, it's not that great out here is it? Why can't we either go in the woods or go home?" Because I'd get killed by a falling tree, dear I told him.

 

Then an almighty gust — I'd say about 55–60 mph — literally stopped me in my tracks. So I just got the wind and rain to my back and walked right across the middle of this field, got the dogs inside, got some wood in and stripped — everything below my knees apart from my wellies was drenched.

 

Now we've got sleet mixed in with graupel and rain — it was stinging my face. Wind's got to be in the sustained mid 40s. Interesting though I've never been out in a wind like that in this neck of the woods.

Amazing how this covers so much of the country, a friend near Blackpool has just told me that when she went out, she could barely keep her feet under her it was so windy.

 

Here the rain has begun, very heavy drops, wind stronger now.

Nothing of note in Central London. Raining and a bit gusty.

 

Hoping Saturday might be a bit more interesting around these parts. 

Abit gusty have you been asleep?  It was roaring here about an hour ago, 50mph or more probably more persistent and notable then St Jude was to be honest!

He's not exaggerating. I saw a whole plantation of pines snapped like matchsticks and their trunks were over 15" diameter.

oH NO :(

 

Just spoke to my mum on the phone, the lake at the back of my house is at "critical" they had someone from Cemex come over and drill into the ground and see the ground water and it started spewing out the hole, within the next 48 hours we are expected to be flooded :'(

 

With rain coming Friday and Saturday I am really worried now!

Sorry to hear that Surrey :( You all sandbagged up? Do you have any drains/manholes etc yo uhave to block up to stop water coming out of them into your house?

 

My parent's fences are going one by one now. They're trying to send me pics but keep having momentary power cuts and no Internet.

Winds easing off a touch here now still blustery though, unless it's just a lull.

Hi! Just down the road from you in Ockendon. Was just thinking the same until the wind just howled round the house. Good job I'd already laid the wheelie bins down. Looking brighter atm but need to go out shortly to pick up daughter from college. I hope the knock on effect from the bridge being shut isn't too bad yet.
