    A tree has blown onto a house on the high street of the village where I went to primary school. Bit worried about my parents now (they live three miles or so from there and have a 300-year-old oak tree thirty feet from the house)

    Byres road shut to through traffic - falling building cladding.

    My work shut at 1 - unprecedented, they didn't even let us going more than 30 mins early in the winter blizzards last year.

    A wind turbine came down in the Borders - very close to the road by all accounts.

    Trees do spring out on you, to be fair. Shifty feckers. Glad your parents are ok.

    I can vouch for this - aberdeen city council does have a penchant for crap christmas lights (2007 & 2008)

    From the BBC:

    'Two customers at the cafe within Elgin library suffered minor injuries when a section of the suspended ceiling came down. An investigation into the cause of the incident is being carried out, but the possibility that it was caused by a freak gust of wind has not been ruled out'

    Genius.

    Those were the ones they just replaced. Although they did find and reinstate the leapoard outside HMT that "got lost" a few years back. :D
