When I posted earlier, I hadn't been out or spoken to anyone, it was a lot worse than I thought here. There is a lot of damage and flooding and sadly a few deaths, I think the last report was 12 for Britain and quite a bit more for the rest of Europe.
Britain had the storm first, and it traveled through to France then the rest of Europe, I think we had it easiest though as it gathered a bit of momentum before getting to Germany and Poland where I believe it was at its worst.
I do hope thats the last of it.
Sorry for the rant - I'm a bit of a weather freak
Its amazing what a bit of air and water can do!
