After a reasonably bright morning, the afternoon has turned incredibly wet. Heavy downpours are deluging my area, and as a result the drains aren't coping. A flood is seen up the road (few inches of water) and in other areas of Stornoway.
Last night (European time), a solar eclipse occurred, with the sun being obscured for more than 6 minutes in some areas. The next time such a long eclipse of the sun will happen is in 2132. Right, I'll pencil that in my diary for that year, will I.
