Monday 8 February

A bright but cloudy day (the two can occur at the same time!) here in the Western Isles. It is cold this morning, but not a lot of wind. Whatever wind there is comes from the east, and it will blow in more cold this week.

This morning, I listened to our local radio station Isles FM to hear the local news. There was no local news. So, I looked up my local news website Hebrides News, which did list some news. However, I suppose it is no great deal that the secondary school here is narrowing the choice of courses for its senior pupils.

The South Pacific is spawning one tropical cyclone after another: today, Pat is brewing up east of American Samoa and will be threatening the Cooks Islands as well as French Polynesia. Pat will reach category I on the Saffir Simpson scale.

More later.


  1. What a brilliant colourful pucture Guido,I feel as though I am standing there myself.We have had a little more snow today and the wind is bitter cold.Lots of changes in the schools here too,they have now decided to close the middle schools (age 9-11) and start again with Junior schools age 4yrs through until the age of 11yrs and then on to Senior school.Why do they mess childrens heads up so much with these changes,and more expence for parents re:-new school uniforms to buy etc.Have a good day Guido.Take Care God Bless Kath xx
