From the Eye of the Storm: Hurricane Bawbag
There was a red alert about the weather, and Scotland went into lockdown. Schools shut as police advised people to “avoid roads”.
So, I have stayed home with the children, cranked up the central heating and settled in for a day of following weather reports, doing a bit of paperwork, wrapping presents and eating high calorie snacks.
Husband, being superhuman, of course went to “work”. He’s back now though 😀
It’s always windy here. Hence the windfarm… So the wind sounds the same as usual – just a whole lot more constant.
Our fence is still up, which is pretty impressive.
I think the most likely structural damage will be the church roof. It blows off once a decade or so, and the last time was December 1998 when it ripped a bit on Boxing Day. So, I am hoping we can avoid “The Church Roof Fund#3”. The building opened in the late 1970s and is fundamentally flawed in design. And perched overhanging a cliff. What were they thinking 🙄
And good to see the Caledonian Antisyzygy in play as the nation named its Hurricane. Very crude. I wonder if the BBC will acknowledge that that is its name.
To my international readers – please don’t ask 😉
