Monday 27 October

Nice sunny morning with showers passing by or over. Otherwise fairly quiet today.

Saturdays' storm caused a fair bit of disruption in Lewis. Bus services were suspended, as it was too dangerous to drive a large vehicle. A bus travelling from Tarbert to Stornoway was damaged on the pass over the Clisham. The entrance porch at the Tesco supermarket was damaged by the wind. Ferry services, as I reported on the day, were extensively disrupted.

Yesterday, both the passenger and the freight ferry did catch-up runs - on a Sunday. Wow.


  1. Being so far north you must get the extremes of weather. It is quite breezy here, blue skies and sun but very chilly.

  2. It sounds like it was quite a wild ride for everyone. I'm glad to hear the damage wasn't more extensive though.

    It is a lovely autumn day here in Pennsylvania!!
