  1. I was thinking of you this morning but knew you had made contingency arrangements after storms a year or two ago to ensure you kept radio contact but wasn’t sure about power – I trust you are not warming your hands and heating tins of beans by candle light and camping gaz? Thanks for sharing your pictures – however high the waves are they are not going to reach us here so we can gaze at them in awe from a safe distance. Hope YOU are safe and secure though.

  2. Thanks Cathy, we’re warm and dry. The power was only off for a few hours and we have back-up systems to keep us warm and well fed. The waves out on the reef are awesome and were fairly impressive this morning at high tide. It’s exciting to watch the waves and hail squalls from the safety of the house but with the wind still gusting at 70+ mph I’m staying indoors. We’re fairly relaxed about the big storms now we’re confident that the house can withstand the big blows and that the reef will protect us from the tidal surges. Provided we survive the high tide tonight I can add explosive cyclogenesis to the list.

  3. It is a spectacular view from the safety of the house! I am informed that with the wind chill it’s about -2 degrees, but I’m not going out to check.

  4. Exciting from the safety of the house. I think you’ll be safe in sunny Aberdeen and I hope you don’t get the snow, unless you want a white Christmas.

  5. You may get a respite tomorrow but the weather forecast looks grim for next week. My neighbours inform me that it’s good drying weather – well it is if it wasn’t raining and you could keep the washing on the line!
