A Winter warmer weather blast


A sure sign the weather is at the extreme end of the Beaufort Scale - the world's biggest pelagic trawlers are all tied up against the quays in Killybegs...



and a quick look at the data from the weather buoys tells you all you need to know - 50 feet high waves and climbing off the west of Ireland and 



topping out 52 feet at Rockall...


and to put that in perspective that is pretty much the top of this building at its highest point...


the buoy in question is highlighted in yellow....
