Stormy night, not windy or blustery but stormy. Depending on how long it goes on for this is the biggest storm to hit here since 2005 when 20% of the plantations up the Glen were taken down. Guess what we were doing ….at the Inn at an event talking about the weather and how climate change will affect communities and how we are going to deal with it. Full on night as we had to start up the generator with the power down for a while and now we are blocked off by a tree down between the Shore Street and Milton. Quick organise who was taking who where in who’s car and off through the trees to my lift. As there was Zumba at the Hall Caroline, stuck on the southside, is ferrying guys home leaving our cars at the Inn. Alison , Jill and Zuzu get Terry’s car home and Terry gets Jill’s car home round the Coast and Judith meets Caroline to take her back north. Marie will either stay at the Inn or get some one’s car to go home to Lochcarron. The walk through the trees to Milton was a little nerve wracking, listening to all the creaking and cracking of the old trees and branches. You could almost feel their pain. Quote of the night from Aron, “It has definitely got windier since we came up here.”Always fear for boats and any one on the water on a night like this. Big tide and the noise of the surf walking along the Street was awesome.
