Overcast, wind WSW at 20-25KPH, forecast for gale force till at least tomorrow evening, temp 2C rising 6-8C then dropping back later on this afternoon. Longrange giving lots of wind, but clearing and colder for the weekend.
The 'red sky in the morning sailor take warning' weather statement true in spades yesterday. Snow mid afternoon, near blizzard conditions, during the evening rain, gale force gusts near 90KPH for the max. Ferry tied up for later schedule trips, don't know if weather or other considerations the reason.
The wind raised havoc with my GRISWOLD world, a couple of the snowmen appear to be decapitated, by time to turn in the bulk of the lights were out. Hopefully the lighting problem a result of the wind causing the plugs to come apart at a cruicial spot, lord knows there are plenty of opportunity for that to happen.
