As it goes there was no comparison. It was unseasonably windy Sunday into Monday. We lost a tree, and our patio table made a bid for freedom.

Tree down, uprooted (not helped by evil wall builders who butchered the roots). The wood pigeons loved the berries, little birds lived there, squirrels played there, and, most importantly it blocked the view of the wall and building over the wall.
The weather through the day was changeable. Grey and even raining to sunny skies. The constant was the wind, dropped from the night before but still gusty.
We were lucky. We lost a dearly loved tree but that was about it. In London our power cables are below ground, we have cable for phones and TV so inside life went on uninterrupted. A good few services were shut down as a precaution; sensibly the Air Emirates cable car... less explicably (on Sunday afternoon) TfL's Overground.
