My outdoor weather station peaked around 10:00pm at 67.3mph!

I'm regretting having put up one of those portable garage jobs the other day - even though it's tied down to several tons of concrete blocks/water barrels. Going to be a sleepless week as this weather is supposed to be here until Saturday.

So still got a bit to go to catch up what we got last week,


Hurricane Bawbag - 8/12/11 - The day Scotland was awfy windy.
Did we panic - NAW!
Did we evacuate - NAW!
Did we abandon Scotland - NAW!
We just had our tea early in case the lecky went oot !!!
Americans get Katrina, Irene, Pauline and Andrew... we get Hurricane Bawbag!
You may take our fences, you may take our wheelie bins, but you'll never take our banter..!! Scotland, we love you..

Currently passing thru the Bay of Biscay - last night we had peak winds recorded at 75knts and steady seas 14m+. Calming down a wee bit this morning, only blowing 45Knts but crew still banned from going out on deck (those that are still standing )
Also got caught in the gales off Scotland last week and caused a fair bit of damage when we were taking waves of 2-3m deep inside our lower deck - joys of working in the North Sea
