I'm Dreaming Of A Wet & Windy Christmas!


Recommended Posts

I've been watching the weather for several days as I've a lot of driving to do over the next few days, I also looked up some of My old Haunts on XCweather, that puts AVERAGE windspeeds on Benbecula at some times over 70MPH, that means the gusts will be over 100. I was there once when the met office there recorded 126mph. The steel framed building was swaying....I was on the third floor.

Maybe we won't be sitting on the river bank with mulled wine this year! Nor going for a hoped for Christmas morning sail, I must be getting soft in my dotage.

A Christmas morning sail could be very interesting!

Never let anything get in the way of a good story, but interestingly not a lot of rain is shown on the sites I look at and the wind speeds being predicted are coming down from the peaks suggested some days ago - as far as i am concerned they can keep coming down, if only to allow the inhabitants of North Bay Oulton, a little sail just to keep their spirits up!!
