That's what we'd be in the middle of if we lived in America.

We've had some windy weather lately, today has been the worst of it, with gusts up to 81 mph and sideways rain at times. But it's definitely not categorized as a hurricane, and really not too much more than bad weather according to locals. The temperature has been around 3 degrees Celsius which is about 37 degrees Fahrenheit.

The schools have lost power and were closed early, and sometimes they close bridges when the wind is too bad, but they haven't today.

One of the most amazing aspects of this kind of weather, is getting to see rainbows ALL THE TIME. Today, we saw a full arch rainbow, all of Roy G. Biv was very clear. It was over the Dornoch Firth. We even saw part of another rainbow above the full one. But, no camera in the car, so I can't show you a picture.

*Weather Update: It's a few hours after I originally posted, about 5 degrees colder, and there's a wintry mix of rain AND snow. Funny, last I checked it was till Autumn.

Batten down the hatches mates. I understand that there was around 6" of lake effect snow somewhere on Lake Erie. They were predicting snow flurries for southeastern OH. Must be global warming. NOT! Get out the sun lamp.
