Gonzalo hits Aberystwyth on the west Wales coast (again)
« on: October 21, 2014, 07:45:33 PM »
This is what it looked like last night - just a few miles up the coast from us here in Aberaeron. I bet there were a few flash-backs to the horrendous spring storms amongst the coast dwellers in Aberystwyth last night. It wasn't exactly 'calm' here neither - it goes something like: Bermuda, Ireland, Cardigan Bay, it's fun living facing the Atlantic with it's westerly gales!

Excuse the soundtrack on the last video - sounds as if they employed a robot for the job! Certainly has not had a lot of practice with Welsh place-names!!!  lol(1)

Looking a bit fierce there B/G.   But after the storm there is calm, woke up this morning to a nice sunny calm day. Getting ready to go down the lottie, hope there isn't too much damage done......will report back this evening.
There is no better show of anticipation than a man/woman sowing seeds in a field.
