I think my greenhouse is beyond repair now, lot about 3-4 heets of glass and the frames twisted, the old side gate is even more knackered now than it was before.

Theres snow on the mountain tops and its freezing cold.

None here that I can see, but there again I went around and laid all my pots down into shelter before the onset of the storm.

No damage but an addition to the garden in the form of a brand new 12ft length of angled aluminium strip that has blown in from goodness knows where. It looks like some sort of satin finished 90 degree "edge" that might fit on a summerhouse, conservatory or home extension.

From the sound of the wind gusts last night, (probably the strongest I've ever heard), the lightweight aluminium strip could have been blown into the garden after flying through the air from hundreds of yards away.

Back gate blocked totally with plant pots watering can and shelf unit
Fleece gloves ready to get out there tomorrow hopefully and start tidying up
We have had so many trees down round here but lucky no deaths .RIP the three that have lost their lives to this storm

One sheet of corrugated polycarbonate shattered, a few items overturned, some plastic netting blown down. All fairly minor. A couple of bins (refuse lorry a day late) blown over and rubbish blowing down the road.

Probably about the worst I have had here, no fences damaged as the wind was in the wrong direction to do that sort of damage.

Nothing I've noticed in the garden but there were plenty of small branches in all the roads.

My neighbours trampoline was blown over his fence into the road and rolled along while cars swerved to miss it but nothing damaged.

Hope they bounce back.

Lost a couple of glass panels from my greenhouse.

Had nearly 2" of snow.

My neighbour's kids were loving it.

Our shed door had blown open with such force that it was left hanging on one hinge which was also twisted.

I'm glad I'd strapped my beehives but I think they are OK. They just look like igloos at the moment.

I was out in the countryside yesterday and a lot of smallish trees had gone over and partially across the road.

Just returned from Redcar where our Veterans Allotment is situated. The new shed is still standing but the Greenhouse is trashed. Luckily we put all the important stuff in the shed before the Storm, but we need loads of PVC sheeting for the glazing and better way of keep the sheeting in place. I am working on it when the weather improves.

One of the sheds we use to store sleeping bags etc for the homeless lost its roof and had a lot of water inside but fortunately we have a very good supply of such items and it hasn't caused any problems.
