I think you might get the winds today Mac. We had the spooky sky. Seems it was a mixture of sand from the Sahara and smoke from Portugal. Certainly different. Off to the gym this morning then Oscar has his annual check up. Issy after school

Hope people in Eire, N.Ireland and Scotland stay safe as the hurricane passes. Luckily we are in for a good day here. I will carry on weeding the allotment as the chickweed is spreading faster than I can remove it.
