    We were in Canterbury. We lost over 30 mature trees in the garden and never had to buy logs until we sold the house in 2002. Many tales of bravery that night, the one that sticks in my mind was Pip Madge, assistant harbour master at Folkestone who was woken by the storm at 2am, although he was not due on shift until 8 he got in the car to head down to Folkestone to lend a hand, found trees blocking his way so abandoned the car and walked back to his house in Shepherdswell, got on his bike and cycled to work in a 120mph hurricane.
