Caterham for me.

We've just had a absolute shedload of tree felling going on around us because of Ash dieback, and that has probably helped in some ways (fewer diseased trees to snap) but made things worse in others (loss of windbreak). Mainly just seeing small branches in the road and wheelie bins everywhere.

Couple of years ago I had a narrow escape while walking the dog the day after a storm and a tall, narrow tree fell across the road about 2-3 metres in front of us. Just missed us.

Straw Poll

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
