On the way home I stopped once to help someone push a giant bin back out of the road (one of these things), found another one blown over near the flat, and was generally very happy to get in out of the wind.
And then bracknellexile posted this picture on FB:
which is of the next street over from me, and shows a roof lying in the middle of the road (and the bits of remaining roof on the right hand side).
The original plan had been to go out tonight for dinner. I think we'll put that one on hold...
