Bad Day off the Fastnet Rock

Tomorrow will probably be a bad day off the Fastnet Rock. Even though Grace is now just a good old Western Approaches gale in strength, she is still tropical in nature.

Many UK insurance policies exclude named storms...Intersting question for "TabbyCat" Are the Irish, in Cork, covered if the storm has a name?

Tropical Storm Grace, 2009 / Stormpulse / Hurricanes, severe weather, tracking, mapping

Supposed to be going diving Sunday, just watch that little sucker wreck our plans

Still hope no one is out underneath it.

Yeah, what with more doom and gloom coming from the Conservative party conference, even the former head of the Army has joined in with a verbal slagging of Moron Brown.
Add to that the weather, and the prospect of a long winter, ........I cant wait to fly south and stay there.
