Re: Storm Ruth Coming to UK!

Ironically ... 'Pol' in Cornish means pool or sheltered anchorage for boats !

Porthleven ..... Means smooth harbour !

Re: Storm Ruth Coming to UK!

Wind picking up again now, nearly midnight, lashing down with rain and the wind is howling, some frost would be nice for a change.
