    I found the dumpster bin, from across the way, blocking mine and the neighbour's drive this morning. We have shifted it. Apart from being woken by the wind noise, we are all good in my bit of the world. Might even ride later if the wind drops a lot.

    There were strong winds in the night and I have found things where they shouldn't be and some things having a lie down. One of our pergola's was trying it's best to look like a Ferrari prancing horse, it was cocked up at a jaunty angle.

    One of our plastic plant pots blew over.

    I'm expecting a Sky News team here any minute

    I live on a building site, so this morning I'll be going around the hedges fetching back all the loose stuff which has blown around. We haven't suffered any damage, though.

    Not a bad night here to br honest. It was worse on Monday night. Lots of debris on the road, bins blown over ETC. We don't appear to have any damage.

    Even by UK standards it was a pretty puny storm. I've done farts that caused more wind damage.
