Bertha

She came to visit...luckily for us we just caught the edge of hurricane Bertha as she petered out, comparatively speaking, mainly over England and the East of Scotland.

As it was, we've had a lot of rain and fairly strong winds, but nothing like the tornado in Hull, and the washout near Nairn that took a whole lane.

Last night we even fired up the woodburning stove it was so cold indoors and wet out.  No chance unfortunately of seeing the largest full moon this year and the Perseid meteor showers.

Methinks that Autumn has arrived a tad early this year.

We had several severe lashings with copies amounts of thunder and lightening, all very intense yet brief. Now the slow grey rain has set in.....
