Another day of wind and rain. Gale force winds last night, which subsided overnight, but regrouped this morning. This was what it was like returning from the croft for mid-morning coffee and toast : close to Gale Force strength already, with spray going over the causeway (off-frame, immediately to the right). As the day progressed the wind strengthened further, and from mid-afternoon onwards, we gave up trying to do anything outdoors, even dashing across to the dyehouse or the woolshed.
The forecast is for this to die down somewhat by morning, but it remains deeply unattractive until Friday.
