OK, I missed yesterday, but I have remembered — at the last minute — to put something in my blog today. Since I’m still getting the back into the swing of it, I’ll keep to the superficial observation that, Yes, it has been extraordinarily windy today (gusts reached over 100 mph in Edinburgh, and Glasgow lost chimney pits, roof tiles, stone railings, trees, and more). The BBC slideshow gives a good idea of the weather.
On the local news cut-ins to BBC Breakfast, the camera showing the view of the Clydefor background green-screen shots was shaking while the presenter read the stories. That lent credence to her warnings about high winds! The Clyde was driven over its banks at high tide, and all in all we withstood a sore bluster.
