Must be complete twit as the garage doors have to be openable normally by pulling a small cable inside
To be fair as long as there's a pedestrian access the main door doesn't have to have an "emergency manual overide"
All that needs doing in those circumstances is disconnect the drive and lift the door by hand. I used to work for a timber building company and fitted a fair amount of electric garage doors, worst was on a housing development where there were a dozen garages we put up. All the doors were just bought as frames and we put our own tanalised t&g boards in. That was a nightmare as everytime it went through a damp spell the boards got heavier and changed the load on the mechanism and the motors wouldn't work!
Don't get me started on getting the individual remote controls to work the relevant door and not be closing someone else's.

I got back from a trip to Lincolnshire at 2am on Saturday morning (it was only an amber warning when I left, honest) to find that the north east wind had blown the rain up under the eaves and flooded the PLC / computerised grain drier control panel.
"Thank God I'm insured!"

Well, this came in an email this morning:

Please note however your insurer has confirmed there is no cover in respect of storm damage to the grain drier, associated plant or farm buildings.
The flood section of the policy also excludes damage caused by storm.

What happens if the carbon has been offset from trees that have fallen?
Most of the damage here has been woodland - very fortunate structurally. Got a few walls and fences lifted by roots.

Many people still off? According to the power grid site we are 1 of 10 houses in the area not connected. However the web site says it will be connected by 6pm on the 2nd which was yesterday for fxxks sake.
There's an hour's wait to talk to anybody. Why should that be if most people are now connected?

I have great respect for the engineers working to fix this but the lack of communication is disgraceful

Yes, I have no electric still, along with my nearby village. I've not been able to find any information about how soon they hope to fix the supply issues, though I did see several large generators had been delivered to premises down the valley so doesn't look like we will have power soon.

I find the not knowing makes the situation more stressful. If there are only relatively few people off now why can't they keep us up to date with what is happening rather than generalized inaccurate information
