Hmm very, very windy night.. Took out an electric pole or two up Wren's Nest lane cutting us off at around 9pm..that was it until this morning. No telephone either.. I'd forgotten how difficult it is to read by candlelight. However, I remembered what it was like when I was small and we had the oil lamps, and Dad's radio ran off either an glass exile battery or a lorry battery.. The oil lamps made the walls black..
Oak tree on the border with the golf driving range land has had the top blown out. The bottom is on their side of the gulley - and the top has, helpfully, landed on our side. That'll provide a couple of box loads of logs - unless we can use it for anything else.
