'Hurricane BB'

Its not a hurricane yet, but scots on twitter have affectionately named this storm... which i won't repeat here. I think we are moreorless in the eye of it so it's worse elsewhere. The road along the bottom of the Hill in the photo is closed due to landslip risk, the railway line is shut. some power is off, the schools are closed.
