Scottish weather

We have been having some pretty bad weather in Scotland today (26th Oct) flooding in Dingwall (pictured - bbc) cut of the A9 and the railway which cut off much of the far north of Scotland. The worst flooding since 1954 which was worse because the tides we had - highest since then were combinded with a worse storm than we had. no one died this time - many did last time. congratulations to the emergancy services.
We had 3 short power cuts (less than 1 min) power cuts are a definet incentive to put wind turbines up - it was very windy:) the only problem being that since the power available increases to the cube of the windspeed we might make more than we could deal with - but I think they have dealt with that.

I'm puzzled - you're in Dingwall or Invergordon but you go to Dundonald Church, which despite its Scottish sound, is in London?

I nicked my picture from the BBC :-).
I am glad I live where the probability of being flooded is very very low :-) one of the advantages of hills :-).
It looks like you had an interesting time :-)

unfortunately I cannot post this on your blog because the captcha picture is broken and so I cannot read it to confirm that I am not a bot :-(
because my school filtering system is blocking the captcha picture
