Now that most of the roads here in Germany are passable again we ventured out today to run some errands. We also took some photographs of the devastation caused by the storm last Monday.

The BBC Website also has a report.

We have been very lucky that day as we had gone out to a restaurant. When we saw the clouds approaching we paid up and went home. It was just in time before all hell broke loose.

The pictures will tell you how lucky we were. It was also very fortunate that the weather front did not hit us earlier in the day when so many people were out enjoying a bank holiday.

Needless to say it caused chaos the following morning with trains and busses not being able to run and roads closed and overhead cables down.

It will take weeks before the fallen trees will have been cleared away.

About landscape painter

Painting and drawing have been my passion from early childhood. I have attended numerous exhibitions in England and Germany. Presented with the Judges Award at a show I now have one of my paintings on permanent display at a museum in Greater London with growing sales and commissions.
