 Mary, I've never heard of tornados in your area. Are they
 that rare..? I know that our American hurricanes don't 
 ordinarily hit you, and yet it's not too many years since
 one did dreadful damage to our cousins just outside of
 London.  >>

Hi Penny, mercifully they are rare but we have had some pretty freakish
weather in the past few years. I think it was '96 when we were all nearly
blown away, this would be the year your cousins suffered damage. Here on my
cliff top it was really frightening but I was lucky and suffered no damage but
all around roofs were torn off, trees and cables down.
