The headline of a Northern Scottish Newspaper, the Press and Journal, stated "Winds 165 MPH".  Under this startling factoid, (and I have no doubt that it was carefully placed) was a picture of a couple at a place where sea spray could be seen dropping over the esplanade. The couple were looking a bit blown about, not best dressed for the situation, and in a risky place for the conditions.  But, to protect themselves from the elements, they were pictured holding a completely intact umbrella!

Yeah right....

A touch of artistic licence, or more likely don't have a clue!
I hope that you've been okay in what has obviously been atrocious weather. Flighty xx

Hello Mr F.

We've fared pretty well in the hurricane and storm force winds, thanks. There's been a lot of structural damage in many places and anywhere with trees has added to the problem.

There were frightening episodes, but people, so far, have been unscathed.

Just now, it's the calm before the next round of 'interesting' weather arrives.
