Well, the weather men got it right this time.
Storms and high winds battered much of the country last night and many of us awoke this morning to scenes of devastation, with severe damage to property.
Sadly, there was even loss of life, but the numbers were, thankfully, small.
Surrounded – as we are – by the Chiltern Hills, we were quite lucky here and didn’t get it as bad as some.
Even so, it was with some trepidation that I ventured out into the garden this morning to witness the carnage left behind.
