So do I venture out? I have important appointments in Bournemouth again today and a quick weather-check brings up police warnings not to venture out unless it is urgent, as Storm Imogen, which hit the British Isles yesterday, is expected to be worse than expected in the South of England today.
UPDATE: 23:25 pm: Well we ventured out when it was a bit ‘calmer’ and decided to keep to main roads through the New Forest avoiding any country lanes – very gusty but manageable. There was heavy, slow-moving traffic on our return, we passed a fallen tree across the A31 which was being cleared very quickly by a team of hard-hat workers. We heard that a tree had also fallen across the A35 (an alternative route between Bournemouth and Southampton). It was dark when we arrived home, but we are glad we took the risk.
