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.

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

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.
