Perhaps instead of 2 mega, they should have opted for "up to 8 mega"..:-)

So I'm hoping it misses us in West Sussex, Met office advises Eastern Counties getting it.

This storm was the reason my flight was cancelled Monday eve bleeding thing. Took me 20 odd hours to get back to work.

Lightning last week damaged my DVD HD recorder, the telephone base unit, two ADSL filters and a PIR detector on the alarm system.

A busy week diagnosing and fixing problems (and expensive)
