Wow! Side on to a strong swell. Hope the cars were well anchored.

Thanks Steve.
I was contemplating lunch by the sea and was hoping it was better with you but sounds not!

It's still awful Hollins,  the wind is a strong NNW one and it's cold and raining.   My garden has taken a hit from the strong winds and the Hollyhocks are completely flattened and the flowers on the Yucca tree are on an angle.
Yesterday I had a nice lunch at the Toad and sat by the window and the only people that seemed to like the weather were two kite surfers who were braving the elements on a very rough sea.
By the time we finished the meal and left the Toad we could see huge waves crashing on to the promenade in Rhos and Old Colwyn.
If this is the Summer then I dread to think what the Winter storms will be like.

Sorry about your garden Hugo.
It really has been awful and still is.
We ended up at Tyddyn Llan for lunch and it was slightly better over there in that it was only light drizzle instead of lashing it down as it is here.
So sorry for anyone on holiday in the area.

The Daily Post has printed the times given by the Weather Channel of the expected storms to hit the region, from Caernarfon at 2.15 pm, Flint 2.45 pm, Llandudno 3.00 pm etc. Be interesting to see how accurate they are.

Being negative only makes a difficult journey more difficult. You may have been given a cactus, but you don't have to sit on it.

It's due at 3.15 pm in Colwyn Bay so I'll have to take the dog for an early walk this afternoon before the rain comes

Plenty of rain here in Llandudno, rumbles of thunder, but nothing drastic yet. It has just begun again--- just as my OH has gone to put the re-cycling boxes out.
