Making Waves



Just before Christmas I posted a photo of Newlyn harbour with the waves well over the wall.  This is the footage of the actual wave - you have to realise that these quays are huge, so the report of a massive sea swell and thirty foot waves is not just extreme hyperbole. Think the second shot is Penzance harbour - but you get the gist.

We have been through quite an intermittent, but lairy hail/thunderstorm that keeps knocking the electric out.  It certainly thumped on our cottage, which juddered slightly under the impact.  Not ideal when I am running behind on my coursework and the blackout are screwing with the pc.  Learnt by this mistake and I power the pc down when the clouds darken again.  I have heard that there has been extensive flooding in St Ives and Looe, more weather due tonight and tomorrow.  Meanwhile, I am going to spend my time working on my 1984 Sense of Place essay.

EDIT :::: Damned storm has killed out satellite dish.  No signal at all - strange as Hubby was clearing the gutter earlier between storms and the dish looked perfectly fine :-(
