    Staffordshire is being somewhat battered, trees & power lines down all over the region.

    Just saw a thingy that made me laugh, couldn't get link to work but basically advice warning:

    Southerners - stay in doors, do not travel

    Northerners - you will need your big coat

    Very funny!

    And I don't think!

    We've just received news that married friends of ours have become the first reported victim and casualty of Doris...:(




    She lost a brand new umbrella and he was hit in the face by an empty pizza box as it flew across their garden after a high gust of wind blew their wheelie bin over.

    Poor lady in Wolverhampton has been killed, so tragic. I am fortunate to be staying indoors today, for all those that are in an affected area and are out and about, stay safe.

    I'm in Staffordshire and as mentioned in one of the other various storm Doris threads, we've lost various fence panels, something has dented my car, and my bins are currently in my garage.

    And my other half still thinks it's sensible to climb a tree in Derby.

    How bad is it in Manchester? Would really appreciate knowing as I have a very elderly aunt up there and she isn't good at answering her phone - it's cordless and she puts it back on the base unit upside down so it doesn't charge.

    I'll try my best to fill that one in. Put it this way, today has been a nightmare with the strong winds and heavy rain. Doris had me losing balance today while walking. Really awful. Hope your aunty is ok.

    Doris has been up to mischief at work! Very strong winds, very tricky landings and a lot of pilots deciding not to try to land, even at very late notice.

    The wind this morning on the south coast was gusty but not too bad. A few wheelie bins blew over in our roads but that's about it. Made running this morning hard work!
