Well, it was overcast today, but fortunately mostly dry. Only the odd light shower dampened things down. It certainly did not dampen down spirits at the Stornoway Carnival, which moved through the town between 2pm and 2.45pm. accompanied by the pipe band. There were 19 registered floats, some of which were very topical, such as the interconnector, the retiral of the Muirneag, the habit of one publican to bar more customers than average &c.
