Afternoon, all, I hope your weekend is off to a brilliant start!
We have more gale force winds forecast for today, and so I’m blogging while I still have power: pray it stays on, please!
@TheWelshWookie and I have braved the wind and the rain, and we have been for a run down the harbour.
It was blowing a hoolie!
I fair enjoyed it, though it was only a short run. The village still looks strangely welcoming in the midst of a storm:
Now, we’re drying off, thawing out and hunkering down for an afternoon of movies, kicking off with Santa Claus: The Movie I think!
Anyone else running through the gales or other poor weather today?

I went out in the gales. I shoved on some ankle weights thinking I would be less likely to get blown away. Misguided running logic!
ha…that probably made your run a lot more fun 🙂
Yeah it was definitely one to remember! Lol
🙂 New challenge for me one day maybe.
lol! Brilliant thinking though! 😀
Good for you for braving the hoolie. When I first read the title of your post I thought it said a Hoodie. 🙂
No hoolies here in Victoria. Post on my blog shortly.
Enjoy your movies.
I had to re-read my own title, for the very same reason! Happy blogging 😉
haha too funny. 🙂
Wind is one weather element I dislike… I find it hard to keep a good breathing rhythm. Good idea to train in it to prepare. Happy running!! 😀
Thanks! It was a fab run! I’m very glad to be indoors now, though 😀
Hoolie… I have never heard that term before, but I like it!! 🙂
😉 it’s a guid, auld Scots word!
We had some pretty chilly 20 mph winds this morning, but no gales! What in the heck is a hoolie?
A hoolie? A windy, wild day. As in ‘it’s blowing a hoolie out there!’ In Ireland, it means a big, crazy party. Same thing, really!!
Ahhh, was the craic 90 too?
Ah, the craic is always mighty/moytie/90!
Got to love Christmas movies when the weather is bad
They’re the best, aren’t they?
Saturday was 21°C here in Tasmania, feeling for you and hoping that the power stays on.
Thank you; enjoy your lovely sunshine! 🙂
I’m off to do a wee 5km in Bushy Park shortly, bit rainy in London today. Ro
Wrap up well and enjoy!
