I have many photos and I will upload them this evening.
Gusting to 55mph this afternoon hence why Cornwall has only a few trees!
Got a mate that lived in Porthleven for a number of years and saw some cracking storms hit the area, hope they have put the harbour gate in today !!

Well, in the absence of anyone wanting to join me as crew for a passage to Yarmouth for supper, I've battened down the hatches and am listening to the rain fall and the wind howl: we live at the second highest point in Bournemouth and will get the full brunt (expected around midnight). Let's hope that our beech tree stays where it is!
