Re: Hurricane Due in Scotland

The very first time I was on the sea was when I was 19 on a cross-channel ferry. The duty free was enthusiastically indulged, as was the bar, and when the puke started cycling down the passageways, I decided that the quaint sort of park bench welded to the foredeck was a better (and nicer smelling) place to be.

I found out later that we'd had a Force 8-9 on the beam most of the way. That explained how I bit my tongue, anyway. Also explains the puke on the ceiling, too, I suppose.

Re: Hurricane Due in Scotland

No need to worry, katia was downgraded a tiny bit from "hurricane" to "british summer" ages ago.

Remnants of Hurricane Katia hit the UK:

Winds have so far reached 60mph and could reach 80mph over exposed coastal areas and hills.
Northern Scotland is expected to escape the worst, with the strongest winds likely across central and southern areas.
Forecasters warn gusts could measure 55mph in Glasgow and 75mph in Edinburgh.
