Safe and sound.

I wanted to let you know that after the storms in the night all is well here with me. I am so grateful and so very relieved.

Devon has had a lot of flooding and many trees have come down in all parts of the county. Local Radio has been wonderful keeping everyone informed about all the problems and which roads and areas to avoid for the time being.

I hope that you too have escaped lightly and can enjoy a quieter, calmer day today wherever you are.

Time for a cup of tea now……

What a lovely photo, very calming. Glad all is well with you - I sat up all night with a poorly Millie on my lap, listening to the wind and rain. Some garden damage, disappointing but not a complete disaster - I will take a proper look when I feel more like coping :)

Good news.
Pleased you have been left safe and sound. Great picture, sun is trying to get out here and rain has stopped. No damage, that I have seen yet, off for a look around the garden in a few minutes now it has stopped raining. Lots of trees down around houses and damaged cars etc on the news. So pleased we have missed out on that wind - was dreading the wind with all the trees around us. Thank goodness it is all over now.

NOTHING HAPPENED HERE NOT EVEN RAIN AND WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE ON IT'S TRAIL.

28 Oct, 2013

 

Thanks Sandra, we really were very fortunate to have escaped any serious damage ... just lots of 'picking up sticks' so to speak!

A magnificent picture, glad you got there safe and well....enjoy..... :)))

you sound disappointed Costas1 ! ;o)

we have just had the rain so really pleased there has been no damage. But so sad for those families that have lost their loved ones.

28 Oct, 2013

 

Glad all is safe with you Chris - I haven't seen or heard a news report today, will catch at 6pm.

28 Oct, 2013

 

I'm glad all is well with you. We escaped lightly too. It was really windy, but I don't think the wind reached the speeds they were warning about here. My thoughts are with all the people it has affected.

28 Oct, 2013

 

I'm pleased to hear you are safe, and that there is no damage to your property. It's such a relief when I hear people are all right. Even though I only know everyone on here as a square avatar on a screen, I still worry about them lol ...

We had nothing here, just ordinary rain. I was awake most of the night (having a period of 'insomniatic' nights at the moment !) and I heard no wind at all ... although they say that Pembrey Sands, - only about 20 miles from here, - had winds of 80 mph !

I like your photo :o)

28 Oct, 2013

 

What a relief for you, you sounded so worried yesterday. No damage here - all that preparation for nothing!

28 Oct, 2013

 

Pleased all is well with you after a worrying night likewise here just breezy rain - usual autumnal stuff I'm glad to say, so sorry for all the people who have been affected though.

28 Oct, 2013

 

So pleased you are ok, Chris ! Now what happened to that cake with your cuppa ! Hahaa
Seriously though, it must have been worrying for you and other people in this part of the country. We have missed most of it! I went out the day before to secure everything in the garden , but nothing happened, I'm pleased to say !
That was a lovely picture you put on. Thanks for letting us know. Take care xxx
