wave What a horrible day it has been, very heavy rain and on occasions hailstones.  The wind has been making the rain almost horizontal at times.  Thankfully now, it has calmed and the rain seems to have stopped. Snow is forecast though!!

I don't envy you that weather Danuta.  It was very sunny and warm first thing but now clouded over with spits and spots of rain every now and then.

I'll try that again!

wave Another horrible day with wind and rain.  Shuna would not even go out this morning.  I managed out for a wee walk mid morning.  At the moment the wind is battering the rain off the window and it is very dark, with poor visibility.   Just yuk!!!!!  big_laugh

It started off lovely and sunny this morning, with next to no wind.  Mid morning it changed to gusty winds and rain....then a bit more sun.....now back to windy and raining.  Nothing like as bad as you're having it up there though, Danuta and Tina  frown   Stay safe!

wave We 've not got snow, but the wind, rain, hailstones and sleet are just making it an awful day.  The sea is rough, the wind is howling and I am so glad I am indoors.

I have been watching the Oban webcam, it looks rather scary over there too.  Stay safe and warm!

I'll try that again!

Unbelievable, last Night, have had scary Nights before,. but the Wind must have been blowing right at my Windows, several times I really thought they were going to come in.  Only had snatches of Sleep, very worn out, as Son, battled through a nine Hour Journey, that should have taken five. to get here from England.

waveHorrible night here too, Tina although not as bad as you.  So much rain and wind here today.  So much surface water as I went into Dunoon this morning.  And there is so much more in the sky which is heavy and very dark.  I am watching two or three seagulls riding the wind.  They at least seem to be enjoying the weather.   Stay safe everyone! big_hug

Husband rang and said the wind had blown him sideways across the motorway earlier  eeek  Bit worrying!  He had an empty lorry at the time though, I guess it wouldn't be quite so bad when it's loaded with cages laden with full milk cartons.  I do worry about him in weather like this. 

Stay safe and warm indoors, Danuta and Tina.....best place to be.
