Thursday 15 July

Pouring with rain today, and a cold northerly wind. The forecast is for the rain to persist for the rest of the afternoon and possibly the evening. The adverse weather is exacerbating the disruption on ferry routes to Lochboisdale and Castlebay (in the south of this island chain). The usual boat, MV Clansman, is out for repairs and its replacements rather smaller. Apparently, people ran out of space, sickbags and everything else, alleging that cattle were treated better than they.

From Holland, a story of trees blown down, steeples lifted off churches and trees blown over railway tracks. After a heatwave, with temperatures into the mid 90s, a thundery breakdown moved over the east of the country, wreaking havoc.

  2. Guido we have had high winds here today ~ A gate was blown over by the high winds ~ Quite a large heavy gate ~ I do not like the wind at all I once wrote a poem about the wind
    "I hear the wind when she is fierce she seems to want to say ~ Move yourself don't stand around ~ ther's much to do today" I can't recall how I ended it but I know it was because I was afraid of the noise the wind makes :o) Ally x
