It was wild up here. First job when I get home: stow all the shutters again.

Sounds like you got off lightly. First job for some around here is to find them!

We're nr Hausen am Albis and our neighbours metal shutters (3m x 2.5m) got ripped off their support in the storm on Monday afternoon and were blowing around like a shirt on a washing line. Needless to say their shutters are destroyed plus their window is scratched so badly it will need to be replaced. Due to the design and position of the house they'll need a crane to bring in the new window! This is where you're thankful for the Gebaude Versicherung....

Rather bizarrely our balcony furniture didn't move an inch....

its got to be the worst May weather that I have seen in 20 years. Got to be connected to Global ( climate ) warming.

At least we didn't have that dump of yellow pollen. (Unless that's yet to come. Is it?)

When things dry out then grass pollen will be a big problem
