Another day of "interesting weather". The schools have shut early, so the kids have got a long weekend. The Sale of Work for the Community Christmas dinner has been postponed, as the wind is forecast to reach 80mph or so by early evening. It looks like it will be bad enough for me to unilaterally declare it our second hurricane of the week.
As I type this, we lose mains electricity. Hurrah for laptop batteries!
Lesson for the day. Remember to make the fire (emptying out the ashes; getting peat and coal in) *before* it starts blowing a hoolie and the rain is horizontal.
