Storm damage

Being of a certain age, I remember the big storm of '87.  The storm of 2007 however holds the most vivid memories and resulted in me, a colleague and 20 students being stranded in London for the night on a trip as we couldn't get home.   I have memories of commandeering two taxis at Kings Cross to try and get as home only to have my plan vetoed by senior management on health and safety grounds.  We ended up in a backpackers hostel in Piccadilly, wandering around Eros trying to avoid tiles flying of roofs.  

This year with the approaching winds gathering we put as much away as we could and moved the big pots into shelter.  The resulting casualty was the honeysuckle and fence panel which disappeared into next doors garden.
