    Bloody WIND!

    Pi$$ed off now!

    Two or three ridge tiles have just blown off my roof.

    What did they hit?..........

    Yep, the side of my car.

    Looks like i've "only" got 4 scratches (1 with a small dent). But the end of my Irmscher rear spolier has parted company eith the reast of it.

    terrible here as well...feel for you Keif.

    My glass garden table has blown over and smashed, only brought it last year and cost a lot of money. My patio heater has also tried to fly and that has got knackered as well

    It could be worse though I have just seen a honda prelude with a tree for an engine bay!! Driver has unhurt but the engine and front of car were destroyed!! Lucky man really a family got killed last year near me when a tree feel over and crushed them all in a car.

    very sad

    Cheers chaps. Yes, it's just a car and nobody was hurt. Could be a good excuse for a subtle change.

    I'll post some pics up when a stop feeling so pi$$ed off.
    If it dies down a bit tomorrow morning. I'll whip the spoiler off. I won't look so sorry for itself then.

    Just walked into town, there's slates, chimney tops. Fence panels all over the place!
