We haven't had floods or anything like that, but the wind here is so strong! It woke me up
last night, and I didn't get back to sleep for another 2 hours coz it was so loud against
my window. And I was kinda worried that the tiles would blow off the roof like they did

The wind in Wiltshire was really strong! They blew our guinea pig hutch over at 2 O'clock
in the Morning! Which woke up half of Highworth! lol

Our fence blew down, now next doors 2 dogs can get into our garden and chase our 2 cats.

We got off really lightly considering that we live next door to a river, The River Ehen.
Ther river is just over its rim, a tree fell in our garden and the wind blew the glass out
of both our greenhouses!

Our fence has blown down, tiles from our roof have blown off and branches from trees
litter the pavements.

The water level is so high. We can't get out of the city. (well safely anyway) I hope it's
not this bad else like it is here!

Today we couldn't get out of our back gate which is the only way out for us. We had to
call our neighbour to unblock it for us!
