That Was A Storm That Wasn’t

Yesterday’s storm wasn’t exactly one in a teacup, but compared to that of October 16th, 1987, it wasn’t the biggest. The BBC have a comparison here.

Personally, I was unaffected this time, especially as that of 1987 could have killed me. I went to a celebration last night near Berkeley Square and except for getting rather wet, I didn’t have any problems. But several of those present had come down from Liverpool and had tales of taxis from Rugby or roundabout routes via Reading.

Sadly four people died in the storm, but the level of damage was a lot less than 1987, where it took two weeks for Suffolk to get back to normal.

There was a bit of damage near where I live.

But it was all reasonably back to normal by mid-morning, when this picture was taken.

  1. Had almost nothing here in Bedfordshire. Just a windy night, but no trees down.
