London Crosswinds today

for those that flew in London today and experienced those 30+ knts crosswinds, what did you think?

I tried landing in a A321 and B772 and may I just say that was some difficult landing for me. I tried approaching the runways all types of ways and when I finally was about to land I was floating everywhere. Anyone have any videos of how their landing went and how they handled it?

I flew from EGLC-EGKK. The fog wasn’t terrible but the approach to EGKK was windy. I was in my new A320 and thought I could cheat by using APPR. Nope. I had to take manual control and land it. It was bad. I was being thrown side to side. Somehow, I was able to bring it down with a VS of -141 ft/min, 1 degree nose up and 123 knots

And it was centered. No picture, didn’t happen ;)

I just got it and never use APPR. I wanted to see how far I could push the system. So had a good landing
