Well it looks like the summer calm is soon over with Hurricane Helene about to come calling.
Murphy has dictated that it will hit Ireland next Tuesday just when we are due to catch the ferry to Wales.
Maybe it will be delayed a bit, or better still wander off and annoy someone else. :iconbiggrin:

It looks to be missing us out, for once. I hope your travel plans go to plan.

Not necessarily Maggie, this is the long range forecast for Thursday midnight.
We are sailing on the Dublin > Holyhead ferry, so not as exposed as further south.

Guys, remember I have a standing order for any excess rain you can spare, sans wind of course.

There's a hooligan blowing here and the ground was bone dry before this.
