Ah! 31.0ºC as I type. It is a bit breezy, but, heck, who cares. As Satchmo once sang "What a wonderful world".

I'm just looking forward to Wednesday on Tuesday.

Thanks "Storm Gareth" for completely smashing to bits my back garden fence panels. So battered in the wind that even a piece of a concrete fence post was broken off one. I'm betting a few folks have had much worse damage. :evil:

Where is it you're based, AT? I have a business trip up the west coast soon. If I'm in the area I will pop in.

Ah, cheers. I don't think I will be going that far north-west. Pity.

If I ever get up that way I will make sure I pop in.

There's a bridge to Skye? Good God! Last time I was there you took the ferry from Malaig (road to the isles) or over the Kyle of Lochalsh. Progress I suppose. Makes you a little less remote but the bonny boats won't be speeding any more.

It's a fair old trek for sure. Do let me know if you ever make it this far.

There has been one for 20 years or so. You don't even have to pay a toll either! You can still get a ferry from Mallaig and the wee summer ferry from Glenelg

Who decided to call the current storm 'Gareth'? It's a ridiculous name. All the Gareths I know are good at art, read The Guardian, that sort of thing.
