Winds topped 120mph last night as Abigail swept across the island...
Sea conditions were severe and just before dusk waves crashed over the jetty and up across the road. Awesome to watch...from a distance!
The power of the sea was immense and the noise of waves crashing on rocks deafening
I retreated back indoors for the rest of the night. There's nothing quite like being snug inside when there's a 'wee breeze' tickling the building for hours on end. At one point I thought the roof was falling off but after checking this morning I'm surprised by just how few tiles are on the ground. All in all, relatively minor damage to our buildings - a few slates askew and a couple embedded vertically in the ground and some loose guttering. Could have been (much) worse!
