Blow Me!

On Police advice, my work sent everyone home at lunchtime today. The winds in Central Scotland were predicted to reach over 100 mph and they reckoned that anyone out and about between 2pm – 7pm was risking life and limb.

No Shit, Sherlock!
I’m not really complaining, as an unexpected half-day was more than welcome.However, they haven’t decided whether or not we’ll be paid for the time lost yet.

It could have been worse, I suppose!


  1. Just looked at some BBC reports of the 'Weather-bomb' that is hitting you there. Good grief, sounds horrific. I've dealt with gale force winds of 70 to 90 mph, but that sounds puny compared to what's happening over there. Stay safe.
