Hurricane Bawbag

Intrigued to find that the storm hitting Scotland at the moment has been christened Hurricane Bawbag by some wag and that #hurricanebawbag is top of the trending list on twitter. The strength of social media.

Been pretty bad here this morning already with the cladding hangning off the office building next door. Since it's supposed to get worse this afternoon we could be in for a bit of a rough ride.

Aye, it's been very, very windy indeed. Got a giggle out of the name it's been christened, however. Grin

The Scotsman is now using #HurricaneBawbag in their tweets about the storm. Even more priceless.

Wind speed on Cairngorm has just topped 165 mph, only 8mph short of all-time record. It's also just suddenly got a whole lot worse here in East Kilbride.

I've just asked for one of these for Christmas. Wonder what the villagers will make of it?
