Bristol is taking a real battering flumpy. We have gale force winds of over 60mph and heavy rain and even thunder and lightning. The noise in the bungalow is dreadful even without my hearing aids in as the wind howls down the chimneys. Quite big pots have been upturned in the garden but they will have to stay like that till tomorrow as we have an amber warning till this evening. It looks black over Gloucestershire and South Wales which I can see on a clear day from my garden. So we are not alone.
