my family and I are in so. France with friends for Christmas. Very intense wind rain and lighting last night. We see on the tele 140k with out power and lots of flooding around Paris. I know it is the wrong side of the channel but I have seen the weather first hand and even the locals say it was a big storm. Scary as hell landing in bilboa spain. Worst landing I have ever had the displeasure to experience. As always the press shows the worst of the worst, but no joke overall.
