I did unplug the computer for a while- there were some very near misses. However, if you unplug things, how are you supposed to watch/read/listen to the warnings??

Half my neighbours drive is being washed away, over my garden. He took up some cracked concrete, and all his sub base is now gone too.

Yes, yes we are. It made the walk to school to collect Miss Moo an absolute joy this afternoon. She was amused by the hail, at least.
