    Default The 1987 Hurricane

    It was the 20th anniversary of the 1987 hurricane yesterday. Has anyone else got any memories of the day?
    As it happened, I was on a very small Greek island at the time, so I had no idea until we got home. I still feel sorry for Michael Fish, though!
    Not for the duff forecast, but that tie.........

    I think most of the damage occurred in Kent and the South East.
    Then we had another big blow in February. I was at Centre Parcs in Sherwood forest at the time, and I remember them having staff in vans with chainsaws cutting up fallen trees.

    Sherwood forest Centre Parcs is quite literally just up the road from where I 'grew up' - if in fact I actually have done.

    You can see it from further up the road from my folk's house.

    I was living in Kingston-upon-Thames at the time - my parents were visiting on their way to Gatwick for a holiday flight which was subsequently delayed, as all roads to the South Coast were blocked. Next door neighbour lost a few ridge tiles off the roof, and I slept right through it all. We had one of those plastic wind-driven ornaments on the apex of the shed roof - it was a cyclist, and he ended up in a tree next door!
