I fear for your life! Perhaps it would be best if you took shelter under a slightly bigger tree...

...maybe one that's a full year in the ground.

Perhaps it would be best that I stay in my living room and peer out of the window!!

I've seen nothing like this for ... well since yesterday really....

Storm Watch UK

This just in:

As "St Jude" continues to batter Britain, a temporary street sign has been blown over. Reliable local sources (me), say the sign was a "No road markings" warning to drivers. It remains to be seen how drivers will now work out that the road has no markings....
