Storms? Now THAT's a storm...

This picture just in by email from my brother in Jersey - looks like yesterday wasn't just a blustery day on the mainland. Jersey gets one of the highest tidal ranges in the world, and combine the power of the sea with a storm and a high tide and you get results to make some local bloggers quake in their boots. I mean, just how heavy is a 5 foot lump of Jersey granite? Quarter of ton, half a ton, more? And it's not like they are just lying around, they were concreted in to the sea walls last time I visited home... Eek. For those who know, this was on Victoria Avenue near West Park (just outside St Helier).
