Sunday 19 September

A dreich Sunday in Stornoway - rain all day. I'm monitoring the weather conditions in Bermuda, a couple of thousand miles southwest of here, where hurricane Igor is bearing down. As I'm typing this, the sustained windspeeds are 50 mph, with gusts to 65 mph. The centre of the hurricane will pass within about 20 miles of Bermuda, with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph, gusting in excess of 100 mph. I'm also keeping an eye on the Bermuda section of, where local correspondents continue to post updates - for as long as it's safe to do so. Many have already lost power, and cannot go outside to start generators. Keep them in mind for this Igor Sunday.

  1. Makes me realize how lucky we are in UK where we only get drizzly rain all day.

  2. Like Technogran said we are very lucky here in the UK although it has been windy and rain on and off all day ~ Summer is now turning into Autum with the nights drawing in ~ looking for to next Spring ~ Ally x
