This is one time when I would welcome a downpour of rain Ian.    I was looking out of my window at about 9.30 am and saw a tractor with a large trailer coming down the road towards the farmer's field.    It was laden with the soft brown smelly stuff and when the trailer hit a bump in the road the trailer released its contents in the road right in front of my house!
It then continued on its way leaving trails of the stuff all down the road.  It's enough to put anyone off their Sunday roast.

I was surprised that the P&O cruise ship, Adonia, set sail teatime yesterday from Southampton down to the Caribbean.

I was very surprised because it is quite a small vessel.

However, I checked it online earlier and it is currently hugging the French Coast and is likely to fare far better than the rest of us in the UK.

Latest on the storm: Ex-hurricane Ophelia winds tomorrow into Tuesday. Storm force 10 over the Irish Sea. Gusts around 80mph in Holyhead.  The storm has strengthened in the last 12 hours. It's starting to look as though 80mph might be understating it. Stay safe, everyone. And don't leave any windows open...

Despite their dithering over the precise nature of the wind speeds we can now expect the real storm to start around 1600 today and last until around 0100 tomorrow.  Anywhere facing due South to West is most at risk from nasty gusts, which will reach 70mph in Llandudno overnight.

Sky is looking incredibly ominous this morning.

An hour ago it looked quite eerie here in Colwyn Bay.     There was dark with an orange type glow in the sky and no wind whatsoever.
Since then it has rained slightly and there is a gentle breeze blowing.
The lull before the storm perhaps?

Mrs R informed me the sky to her last looked like that late afternoon on the 10 June 1993.

Same here. Sun is red but there is no sunlight somehow, really eerie.

Drove from Llandudno Junction to Liverpool earlier (arriving here at 7.15) ... all seemed extra dark - the sky here is very grey with the bright orange sun showing through.  Journey home tonight, leaving about 6.30, could be interesting.
