Any roof in a storm??

Paid our annual visit to the southern engineering and manufacturing show today - (Its one of the things you have to do if you are a UK based manufacturer :-)).

Great day, although the very high winds and heavy rain made walking around interesting as the marque structure was flexing and creaking and some of the stands started to flood. Seeing men in yellow jackets looking at the roof every five minutes looking worried gives you some indication of the level of concern the organisers appeared to have had.

15 minutes after we left they then evacuated the entire show due to adverse weather.
