We’ve been bashed and battered by gale force winds over the past 12 hours or so, with gusts reaching 140MPH in the Highlands. You can read all about it here.
And so, we have no power in our village again, for the second time in a week.
The joys of living in rural Argyll!
On my commute this morning, I had to dodge seven trees which had blown over and into the road, which was a little different 😉
I’m hopeful that normal blogging (and normal running) may commence later, or failing that, tomorrow.
It’s supposed to be our village’s Christmas Lights switch-on tonight….. not sure if that’ll happen now!
Hoping you are all safe, if you are also affected by bad weather!

Good luck and be safe!!! 140MPH winds is amazing.
Thanks, I know- I couldn’t believe the gusts were that bad!
140mph??? Where I live that’s called a tornado! And here I am complaining about 30mph winds on my run….Hope your power comes on soon! We are supposedly going to have an ice storm tonight. That will most likely cut our power. So….see ya in the dark?
Yup- meet you there! Our power is likely to be out all night.
140 MPH??? Did you get the conversion from Kilometers right? That’s insane. I was in a typhoon in Guam and the winds were like 120 mph. Lots of destruction it caused! Be safe!
I wouldn’t have beliveed it, except it’s the BBC reporting it as 140mph gusts! 😮
Oh no! Be safe and stay indoors. Hope you get your lights back soon.
Thanks; no word on when power will be restored- may be tomorrow; we’ll see!
Good lord! Stay safe!!!!!
Thank you! I’ll do everything I can to!
I don’t think there’s ever been a wind gust of 140 MPH in Seville.
City would be destroyed.
Thanks, fortunately the wind has eased a lot!
Yikes! Stay safe & warm.
Thanks; all toasty here!
I just saw a report about your wild weather, nasty! I hope it settles soon. Stay safe, dry and warm x
It seems to have passed pretty quickly, thankfully!
Stay safe and I hope the lights stay on!
Thanks, they’re back on now! Phew!
Wow, that’s scary! Be safe! I have friends in the UK and one of them has been keeping us updated on Facebook. Crazy pictures!
Thanks, hopefully everyone further south is doing ok.
That is some powerful storm wind. 140 mph is high category hurricane force.
Really? Wow- glad it was a little further away from me, and only gusts!
