3rd January

Well that was an interesting day,
heavy winds knocked the power off at about 7am
and this is us just getting back online(at 1am on the 4th Jan!)
The island looks like a disaster zone, see gallery below:

Haven't seen anything like that reported in my time. I was told of similar damage just across the water yesterday, around Toward, and maybe further. Currently appreciating sheltered Glasgow burbs for once.

The island looks like a battlezone. I wonder what Skipper Wood behind your house is like.

What a shame. It's so sad to see trees uprooted.

It's always sad somehow to see trees knocked over.

I heard about this on Face Book via a back packer we met a couple of years ago!

Took a walk over at Scalpsie (only road I could find open) . Took my breath away. You deserve a medal.

Very reminiscent of the january hurricane in the mid sixties on Bute. I've got some roof and fence damage in my own property to get sorted this week.
