Saturday’s awakening.

Saturday's awakening.

For some reason, WordPress would not upload any of my photos on the weekend but thankfully it seems to be back to normal. Here is what my husband, my mother and I woke up to Saturday morning. After the gales of Friday night and the horrific stormy weather, we were shocked and frightened to see a huge 10ft tree had fallen onto our lawn from the neighbouring garden. It is nothing compared to the horror that the rest of Britain is going through but scary nonetheless.

UK Devastation.

My mother, husband and I awoke to a huge 10ft tree fallen on her garden lawn yesterday morning. Storms have gripped Britain. The winds have taken a break today and clear sky covers London. Bright sun only worries us. Is it a warning of what is to come? The weather forecast is not looking good. Here in London, unlike the rest of the country, we have been relatively lucky. The unfortunate incident that happened to my mother yesterday is one of many in the area. Trees are a danger. The winds were so violent Friday night, we could hear the walls moaning. It was quite frightening.

The rest of the UK are fearing the next set of floods. They are coming. We have all been warned. Devastation is tearing through the country. Families have lost their entire worlds as homes they have grown up in have been totally destructed and ruined. People are dying on the street from falling trees, they are being electrocuted by stray power lines tangled and hidden among the broken branches. It was reported yesterday that a young woman was killed whilst driving through Central London when past of a building collapsed on her.

My thoughts go out to the country. I hope the government stop charging people for sandbags to protect their homes from the never ending flood water and pull their fingers out to help. People are angry. They are suffering massive losses and feel incredibly alone.
