Storm Doris is on her way. Northwest likely to get a battering as the storm will be severe as it enters Liverpool Bay tomorrow morning.

Hold onto your hats.

The wind arrows on the weather maps were the closest and most intense Ive seen them in a long time . Good job the tides are going to be low.

They have upgraded the warning to 80mph winds for this area with associated damage and potential for power cuts.

I don't think it is going to hit us quite that hard inland but I'm glad I don't live on New Brighton seafront.

Will be leaving my bedroom windows open tonight as usual, its nice to see horizontal curtains occasionally.

Decided to cancel my plans for today so now still in bed and enjoying a rest. Normally I am up at 6am to mind grandchildren or to go for an early swim or day out.

I feel sorry for the Circus people at The Dips New Brighton as no doubt the weather might put parents off today going to performances.

Sounds deceptive through double glazing.. First job of the day...smash out damaged fence panel,(wind may have done that bit for me)cut down small tree, cut new 6x5 fence panel to size and slot in posts....which I don't think is very wise thing..might end up half way down the Wirral.

I love a busy man. laugh

On 2nd cuppa now, and watching the trees swaying and bending all over the place. I don't like this weather, it frightens me a lot.

My back garden fence has had it. Urban Farm at Bidston closed today too, some trees down. Halsalls solicitors window blown in, in Greasby - hope they get it boarded up before the end of the day or someone will have to camp in there! This is a rough one. Seriously, Doris, you've made your point... enough, already!

A wall has collapsed onto cars in a car park on Cleveland Street. Amazing pictures online.

Travelled up from London this morning in a fairly high sided vehicle in this treacherous weather. Various incidents, accidents and diversions along the way. Conscious decision was made to avoid the A41 which is a route of choice but when the closed the m6 between 19-20 there was no choice. We were getting hit a fair bit by debris even on the motorway but on the A41 we were two cars behind a very damaged car hit by a huge tree when a five foot branch hit the top of the windscreen. Very scary indeed when you're actually looking at a fallen tree. I had tears in my eyes just from the fright. Thankfully it was only a few inches thick but lucky not to smash the screen I think especially as there was already a 12 inch crack in it from one of the other bits of debris.

Thankful to be home now eek
