Power was on & off from about 10am yesterday and finally went completely at about 4pm.
We got it back at 9am this morning, but only lasted 3 hours and pole caught fire so it went off again for another 3 hours. Back on now but I still have the genny ready to go as my poor UPS really needs a rest.
Top gust here was 70 knots, according to the VP2's display yesterday but the highest the data logger downloaded to WD was 66 knots.
No real damage here, an old rotten gate post in the croft snapped but that was expected. I did have to spend an hour or so, in the dark, securing the bottom of the garage door as the wind was threatening to rip it off the house, fortunately my efforts were successful.
I see Sean, down in Castle Bay is reporting a 95 mph gust for yesterday on his site and I know they had much worse than we did up here.
I was watching Steve's site up at Sandy last night (I was at work ) as I was speaking to Shetland Coastguard about the winds increasing up there when Steve was reporting 83mph and then the site went down. I assume power failure, much like the rest of us.
I think there was more "offline" on the SCWN map last night than there was data, but it's back to about normal now.
