    Still at Moncofa as the weather hasn't been too bad here. However tonight the clouds are black & ominous so we may be in for a dumping ... not snow though like Dick reported for Scotland. :thumb:

    :Rofl1:probably not but I would't want to be on it most times. Anyway- would miss the drive which used to take me a fortnight to Spanish border(and there I stops before turning left for the Med). Anyway is not the "late" Santander ferry like deceased RIP.
    But there is a new one (LD) that hops across the Bay of Biscay from South Bretagne to the Spanish North Coast.:shout:

    The last time we had a deepening low that was this low in Biscay, we had 100mph winds in the UK - It was the storm that gave Michael Fish his claim to fame.

    We were at Oradour-sur-Glane last night (Limoges) and had an absolute stunner of a thunderstorm in the evening, lasted a few hours. Then at about 1am the wind started (the stuff that blows outside and rocks the van) nearly as bad as the hurricane that hit us last year. Did not sleep very well :Sad: but all in one piece :thumb: The wind petered out sometime mid morning but it was still a bit hairy coming up here to Vierzon. Jane :Smile:
