Of course not – but to have the main line in and out of London still out of action so long after the storm has passed seems somewhat excessive.
But the storm didn't hit London until a lot later than it hit the South West, according to the radio this morning there were over 100 trees on the lines in the South East, it's going to take a while to clear that up.
No signature worth mentioning...
Only 30 of them were on the SW Trains network, and it reported that most of them had been cleared several hours ago. One assumes the main line was prioritised?
'And so on February 22nd 1966, at Luton airport...'
Sounds like it was a bit of a damp octopus.
Is there another kind?
Baked, with salt and olive oil?
HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
Probably the wrong type of storm...

Unfortunately four people have lost their lives.
You just never know.........
Nice to see that Wales had the same warning and news coverage as the south east..........
We got the absolute sh-t battered out of us last night where I live, but seeing that I live in the North West, I don't expect it will be headline news anywhere.

Whereabouts Major? I was at a fireworks evening in Stockport yesterday! Rainy but not too windy by the evening.
Fylde Coast, six miles north of Blackpool. We didn't half take a beating. My brother works on Blackpool Illuminations and for the first time in the 27 years he's worked there, by half past nine at night they'd closed-off the promenade to all traffic and turned the illuminations off early because it was too dangerous for anyone to be there. To give you an idea of how bad it was, my brother parked his car in the works car-park which is on a slight slope, he forgot to put his handbrake on, and when he came back, the wind had blown his car 30 feet up the slope into the the ar-se end of his workmate's car. No damage done thankfully.
