Storm Approaching

Apparently our islands are going to be battered by storms this coming weekend. No trains Monday then.

Storm Ciara is meant to be the worst we've had for a long time. We have already been told not to travel on Sunday as there is a danger to life.  :o :o

Why on earth do they make so much fuss these days? I'm sure the storms were just as bad, or not, before they started naming them? Sensationalise to monetise perhaps..

We live in the age where the Media rule Zoony. The bigger the Headline and the more fear and uncertainty they can create the better they like it.

During the last so-called storm we didn't have enough wind to blow out a candle or enough rain to make decent puddle.

Don't know about the weather where any of you are but, it's certainly blowing a hooley in Perth. The house is shaking with the really strong gusts.  :o  Went out and laid the bins flat as I don't want to be chasing them round the garden. Hope my fences are still upright at the end of this......

Same here, 13 miles north of Perth on the A94. Rain is quite heavy, but not as bad as I expected,  but the wind is gale force. Iím downwind, as it were, of a couple of miles of open farmland, so the wind has free play!

End of a lovely day but I can hear the wind rising and a few raindrops herald the coming of the ordinary, old-fashioned storm..
