Hold on to your hats for the sunrise an hour and a half later:
After that flaming sunrise, the wind got up to force 5 - 6, which makes a bit of a mockery of the 11C / 52F on the thermometer. A few showers on the radar, but not much.
I'm pleased for Castlebay, Horve, Eoligarry and Ardveenish in Barra for being in line for improved mobile phone coverage. Although I'm not a Vodafone user, I am bound to say to Mr Hoencamp (that translates as chicken camp, btw) that he makes enough money out of users in the Western Isles and indeed all rural communities that his company can easily afford to give everybody decent coverage. And when are all mobile phone providers finally going to talk to each other about sharing masts?
