    Wood burner, fallen trees !

    Go on, venture out . . . . you need to stock up, Riever :cheesy:

    My patio furniture has been rearranged, one panel of my new fence (last year) is collapsing, and the post that my gate attaches to is on it's way down, so I can't shut the gate. It is a bit scary in 'Sheels and its not finished yet :emoticon-0107-sweat

    luckily, new roof was finished early yesterday, tree blocking the lane at the top of the vilage, the usual bins, trampolines, garden furniture been visiting neighbours but surprised there has not been more damage here, couple of walls and fences down but the main thing is the houses seem to have done ok.

    48 hours without electricity was 'fun'. Charged phones at the pub yesterday, but no internet so mobile costs high, lots of food in freezer and fridge probably went off..

    My son slept downstairs in the living room, with the 8 and 5 year old, gas fire.

    i just pretended it was the 50s again and went to bed as normal.

    Obviously this was an exceptional storm, so power lines went down, fair enough.

    My questions would be, did the privatised companies, maintain, service, replace kit as necessary and was there enough engineers once the wind died down could they call for help from other regions (although not there own company)?

    Missus works for Northern Powergrid. Loads of extra staff brought in over the weekend to deal with the deluge of phone calls. Extra engineers drafted in from Ireland and The South East. Not just small sections of Power lines down, huge swathes of them will have to be totally replaced. Hope you're back on soon mate. I know they're working flat out round the clock.

    The weather's better than it was at the weekend, and I'm feeling a bit better :emoticon-0105-wink:

    Now I'm thinking 'off the shoulder or on . . . . what looks better ?'
