I think today's high winds were probably the last gale of winter. Winter has been hard on all, not just here in Lewis, but elsewhere, with a nasty bout of flu doing the rounds. Spring will arrive after winter was eclipsed in next Friday's solar eclipse - got this faint hunch that we may get favourable weather to view that. March has come in like a lion, and I'm now awaiting the lambs. Maybe I'll head out into rural Lewis, wander among the crofts and see if I can discern the bleating of newborn lambs. I'm looking forward to the arrival of spring.
