NOT a White Christmas!
Er - currently wind has been recorded in Kirkwall gusting over 80mph. We have a severe weather warning in place for winds to get up to 90mph. It's a little scary around here at the moment. I am safe indoors as is Button, but the noise is tremendous! Windows and doors are rattling and i've put tape over the doors and key holes to stop the draught! There was a "calm before the storm" moment at about 9.30 this morning so I got out to feed hens and Charlie the barn cat. NOT planning on going anywhere else at the moment!
As you can see above the sea is "smoking"! Wonderful to watch, just hope everyone is safe and snug on this Christmas Day.
The sun came out and there was a rainbow in the sea spray
Wild sea in Hoy Sound
And yes in this photo it looks so tranquil.
I've added a "weather widget" to my blog - on the right hand side down the bottom - so you can see the weather around here!
