Eleanor Blew & Blew But The House Still Stands

Ooh the weather has caused so much of a problem to some folk around here.  There are a few of the houses that face the opposite way to mine and that means they have been seriously buffetted about in the storm force winds that are hanging around.  the geography set always seem to get their information quite correct now, the storms have names and we are told well in advance that we should plan and take action to offset as much damage as possible.  This is probably because in 1987 when there was the worst and deadliest storm in living history, we were all caught out and we lost millions of trees, lamp posts were toppled, power lines down and so much damage to houses it was like a really bad horror film.  Since then I have engaged contractors to ensure my maintenance is current and the house won’t fall around my ankles!
