Morning all. Well that was a wild night.  Our usually solid house was creaking away very alarmingly - at one point I honestly thought we were going to lose bits of the roof.  We live in a narrow valley, and Mr C assures me it sounded worse because the wind was just the right direction to be tunnelled down it.  However, no damage done beyond a sleepless night, so counting our blessings.  Even still got power
