Just threw the km right out the window, huh?

Poor little km.

Good luck Limey!

Snow day here, crappy roads but not much accumulation.

Wind, rain, sleet, hail, wind, big waves, high tide, wind. No power outage yet (that'll be when I decide to do some baking later, no doubt).
This is a little unusual, though "The MV Caledonian Isles has had to leave Ardrossan as it was unsafe to remain there and is now berthed in Brodick."

Got the power back for now. Oh, I'm not in a hurry to go anywhere tonight and the house is 130m above sea-level, so we should avoid the high tide OK!

With the high wind from the northwest it's probably pushing the waves from North Bay right into the marina at Ardrossan.

Well, yes. Usually the boat "shelters" at Brodick when the weather is lively, so we were a little puzzled to discover that she was away over there. Brodick is far easier to get in and out of, that wee wiggle coming into Ardrossan can prove very entertaining. She has to come into the harbour at quite a lick and then do a handbrake turn pretty sharpish.

Christ, that would scare the barnacles right off the keel.

Maybe they were at Ardrossan when the weather blew up but the captain's girlfriend is at Brodick, I hear there's a lot of hot ladies on Arran.

Snow light, snow bright,
The first snow I saw last night
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wished all night.

You're what, 13 or 14 hundred feet there? Chillier than down here.
When I got home about 3:30 this afternoon, it was 32 degrees and the half inch of snow was gone, except on the evergreen trees.
