    I've seen some wild weather on Dartmoor during my military career!!! Hope you are well battened down and have plenty of warm dry clothes. Stay safe.

    Nothing major in Kent, just heavy rain.

    The wind is really kicking off here now (Bucks) - very wild - but was calm until about an hour ago...the forecast reckons the worst here is over the next couple of hours...

    Update - in the last 30 minutes or so I've lost about 15 tiles from my garage roof and a fence is broken. It is brutal here, not seen anything like this for years. We usually miss the worst, but not this time. :Sobbing:

    I am in Cambridge right now and is a bit windy but nowhere near what they were saying.
    Will see whats it like when I get further south.

    BBC weather say that the worst winds are on the "back edge" of the storm, across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, and Hertfordshire now, and then Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk over the next couple of hours, with it clearing into the North Sea by about 10am.

    They weren't kidding about how bad it was going to be here - fingers crossed it has calmed down a bit here now - I wasn't expecting it to be as bad as that, strongest winds I can remember, including 1987 (although we weren't that badly affected by that one, luckily).
