Re: Winter Gales in the Channel

Actually the rocks smashed up a seaside cafe. Winds were 70 - 80 mph in Northern Ireland with 30 ft waves according to news reports.

Re: Winter Gales in the Channel

The good news with UK weather is it always changes pretty quickly. Rain and sea waves coming over the sea wall as I rode along this morning to work. Now, all calm, rain ceased and I can start to work out were the water came in from, might have lost some slates off the roof
