How's the weather over there?  
So on the one hand, it's a little silly to see a headline talking about "hurricane force winds hitting Britain" and worry about the people i know in Britain, cause that's a whole country we're talking about. It would be pretty silly for people to worry about me because there was news of a hurricane hitting the US.

But on the other hand, pretty much all of Britain is relatively close to what is pretty much the same ocean, and said headlines mention the same storm also hitting the Netherlands, France, and Germany, so it's not exactly a localized affair.

So, uh, doctorskuld and naye, how you guys doing?

It's so sweet of you to think of us! The south got hit pretty bad - some people killed by falling trees, which is never good - but in Cambridge it was a normal day. (Which is to say - windy as fuck.) I think the general reaction around here can be summed up with this collection of images from Twitter:

Yay! Glad you guys didn't have anything to worry about!

And that pic looks about like the (US) west coast reaction to the earthquake they had on the east coast a couple years back :)

In fact, now that i check, the upper-right picture with the fallen over chair was going the rounds during to 2011 east coast earthquake too. That chair really gets around! :)
