May miss us to some extent, but maybe time to batton down the hatches.

Yup, looks like it's heading your way, Mike. For once it should miss NW Scotland. :iconbiggrin:

No it's not, it's still only half way across the Atlantic.
What you've got is one of those new fangled things that hadn't been invented when we were young ... a Prequel :?

Looks like it's going to miss me as well,

:shock: Wow it looks like it's gonna hit the netherlands full force. I hope it is't early. I'm delivering the mail all day tomorow. Luckily the forcasts say tomorow there will only be a couple of intense showers and dry weather in between :icon_smile:

Well, I've just looked at the local forecast from the Met. Office. Wind speeds up to 20 mph over the next two days (Sunday and Monday). We had worse than that yesterday in an everyday thunderstorm. Bit of a damp squib, really.

Not that I'm complaining.
