We normally sleep with as many windows open as we can stand but last night we shut them all because of the noise of the wind.

One of the trees in the upper field (an alder I think) has been torn up by the roots.

A wild old night.

I think we may have escaped the worst of it here. Lots of small branches down out in the forest this morning, but no trees.

My mother's carer said there was a lot of debris on the roads when she drove over this morning.

At least it was far from the house.

Yes, it's something to be grateful for.

The field backs onto the garden and the topmost branches of the tree have just clipped the hedge that divides the two.

That's a massive tree to have uprooted that way. You must have had hurricane winds though it looks like a shallow root system didn't help the poor old thing.

It's not a tree I was in any way worried about. It seemed perfectly healthy.

It's too bad then. I hate it when trees go.

Seems to have missed us entirely, I think. Maybe it drifted down southwest of here.

Sorry to hear about the tree.

It seems to have passed over now. It rained a lot too. I'm sick of ground being waterlogged.

I understand that Kew Gardens is closed today. I wonder what the aftermath is there.

Oh dear. I suppose we'll be told if they've suffered any major loses.
