Thanks . I think the last true hurricane to hit the UK was in 1987.  After a very good undisturbed night I woke looked out the window and noticecd our runner beans had fallen over,  I we to downstairs to catch the new on tv and then i saw the massive damage across the country with homes destroyed and massive flooding     , up and down my street there were fallen trees blocking the road , houses with chimneys  and roofs had been ripped off.  A couple of work colleagues  had spent the night hidding under the kitchen tables  or under the stairs   because their roofs had gone and we  just has the best nights sleep for years. It was a very bad experience  for many. 

The good many people that over the years I've met who like me were normally very light sleepers but slept right through it.

I did go for a 100 mile motorbike ride in the middle of a force 10 storm and that was a bit scary and fun as branches rained down on us , there were a few near misses with low flying she'd roofs and dustbin lids and even a presure cooker flew past at one point and then the roads turned to rivers and flooded it was to say the least an exhilarating ride

Thank you. The poor dog has no hands to hang on so what's a little nip between friends. I try and add a bit of fun to these quick scribbles. I do hope you're ok pamela the only times I've  caught up in bad storm was when I was young enough to think they were fun
