I had no damage and I had a day off from work. 30 of my colleagues had to sleep over at work as there was no way to get them home. Public transportation was shut down and a lot of roads were closed because of blown over trucks blocked roads. 7 people died in The Netherlands because of the storms.
For once Scotland missed out, well the southern bit. Further up the Forth Road Bridge was shut to all traffic, not just high sided for a few hours.
Not as bad as the ice storm that paralysed this area for a week in 2002, and we had a similar storm before that where Luton vans just fell over sat at the traffic lights.Mind you, what hit England was v Nasty.
Korky had to go out back then (was late 90's i think) and get the drivers in the company Astra (couple of months old). When he got back it was a write off!!!!!
Granted it had had 2 trees hit it (not it hit the trees) and been struck by a HT power line. :wow:
haha i know what you mean, i grew up on the north west wales coast where you get proper wind all year round and the trees, roofs etc are made of sterner stuff than inland that's why people have dry stone walls there instead of fences
