Calmer day...

Photo taken yesterday by Alistair Skene up at Yesnaby on the west coast of Orkney Mainland. Not surprisingly this has gone "viral"!  These are HUGE cliffs...

Made it through the night of wild weather. Poor Button was quite unsettled.  Today feels so calm in comparison though the average wind speed is 37 mph and gusting to 52 mph!  Button went for her morning constitutional at 7.30 this morning and is now sleeping off the effects!

I've not been outside yet but no visible damage (no roof on the ground!).  Electricity stayed on for me which is great as house warm.  Though phone line a bit intermittent but not surprised with all the lightning last night!

Hope the rest of the country fares as well....


  1. Wow! That is an amazing photograph. Very glad you are OK. I'm the other side of the UK right down on the South coast and we've had nothing like the storms you've got. Windless here this morning, if a bit rainy now and then.

  2. Wow, that was storm, glad to hear there was no damage to your home.

  3. Those waves are awe-inspiring and really put us puny humans in our place.
