KEF - the green house is fine, though I am now a little more keen to move the rest of the top soil mountain as I am a little worried it might collapse with any more rain and go tumbling through. Fortunately the garden seems to have survived just fine - I was very worried about the apple tree (since the ground has been disturbed nearby with the pond going in and I've dug all the top soil around one side to replenish it with new and feed it) but a fallen tree would be nothing compared to what others are going through. I am however very grateful to have hedges through most of the back garden - we drove past the house where we used to live not long ago to find the fences had finally succumbed to the weather and had disappeared down the road.
Plenty of rubbish from the neighbours has made it into the front garden (they don't seem to like sealing their rubbish with a lid so it often makes for an escape) so looks like that'll be this evenings job to tidy up.
Please keep safe everyone - this is no weather to be making undue risks for!
