Storm Damage

Bloody hell. We are getting the tail end of hurricane Gordon and we are experiencing some storm force winds. As I walked home this evening and entered the estate I live in I noticed a flash and the street lights went out. I didn't think much about it until I got to my door and found half a tree lying 5 feet from my door.

There used to be a big tree outside that had grown in two branches from close to the bottom. Half of it had blown over, knocking out a street light and probably causing the street lights black out. 60 seconds later I would have been walking under it.
