Monday morning. Made the 10 minutes to the station, totally soaked, it was raining like hell.
Waited for train and just as it was approaching my station a tree fell on the tracks, no more trains. So I was considering to go in on the other line to London but the train people said that that line was shut too.
Great, what a start in the week.
Here is the text from the BBC:
