Prep for tonight's potentially destructive storm, folks

#1 Post by TheyCallMeMrGlass » Sun Oct 27, 2013 8:26 pm

A storm is coming, Harry...

Keep safe overnight and morning, everyone. They predict a major storm across Southern England perhaps of the scale we had in 1987 which I remember well and was pretty destructive for UK standards.

Here's a check list: (powercuts might occur so charge up your phones and powertanks etc, dont have any loose objects lying around in driveway/gardens that could be blown away or smashing into windows, lock the garden shed and garaged doors etc)

Also make sure to check TFL or your train company if you're in the London area and commute into work, because I just found out that my trains likely won't be running until 9am or 10am...

DD is on a very long journey on the train from Manchester to Northampton and all the boards are down plus she was waiting forever in Stoke for her delayed connection. Can't wait to get the text saying she's in her halls.

Keep safe everyone. Hoping our garden fence is still standing in the morning. Also My Daughter is booked on a train from London too Birmingham tomorrow morning 9.30am. So I will be worried . My Aunt is in Bexhill on sea and they have high winds and the sea waves are very high at moment.

Thank goodness she is back now. Took 4 hours and that's before the true storms have arrived.
Keep safe everyone.
