The world has come knocking on the door of the USA again, nearly 12 years after 9/11: two bombs appear to have gone off at the Boston Marathon today, killing at least 2, and injuring several dozen. I'm very sad that such a happy event got marred in this way.
Here in Stornoway, the wind has dropped after a day of sunshine and showers. Went for a wee amble around the Battery in the afternoon. It has become milder, but not nearly as mild as the 20C in eastern England.
