I've known storms like this before but not one after the other like this, the ferocity of the wind as been at times scary. It's a case of waiting for the crash of a fence or a chimney stack coming down.
In all fairness in the East Midlands where I live we have been lucky, but in South west England, South Wales and the North west of England the storm have literally deadly for some people.
The government as been it's usual self, slow to be bothered and when they come in for criticism they respond with what seems like minimal help. They have postponed the loss of jobs at the environmental agency for a while. Mind you the floods are getting close to the south east, so now that some of the MPs second, third and fourth homes might be affected then we might see some more urgent help being given out.
The only silver lining is that it is not that cold, if it had of been, all of this rain will be falling as snow. Then WTF.....
