    No Im not referring to my rear end which is pretty horrendous if Im honest... :lol:

    Im on about the gale force winds last night! I have had about 2 hours kip thanks to the hurricane around my house and we woke up this morning and it looks like a bomb has gone off in the garden. We are missing 3 fences and 3 of the concrete posts have actually been broken the wind was that strong!! :shock: :shock:

    Anyone else had much damage??

    yeah us too - there is nothing around us but farm land and the land is as flat as a pancake so no protection from the wind :shock: :shock:
    I cant begin to describe how noisy it was last night! It was actually scary at times! :(
