Live with the rolling tarps

Here is a LIVE weather report. Behind the rainy system, which was deceptively warm looking but when I took my trotters to run the track proved icy rain and unkind on my spectacles, hid a North Westerly Wind storm. It has just arrived in the past 30 mins at is gusting at 63 KM p hr.

It just body checked my window with what sounded like a hefty bump off the arse of a wrestling owl colliding with it. There followed another gust which sounded TARP esque.

I am tentatively predicting the next windy sounds will be redolent of sheet metal being shook.

On va voir.

Meanwhile over on the East Coast a big thunk of a snowstorm is landing. Of course our 63 k phr have shook things right up. All sympathy momentarily dissolved and distracted. An Orange alert declared in Connemara, (Ireland obv) but my weather spy reported the roof of the house ready to lift off I quote “Orange alert my eye”. We are united in weatherly affront.

Bonne nuit.
