It's a bit windy out today

There's a lot of wind out there right now. All of the Edinburgh schools are shut, and my work sent home all non-essential staff at 1:30. I had been out at a Christmas team lunch, but not drinking (as we were intending to return for the afternoon), but was very happy to just head home rather than stay out. This is the kind of weather where people die from things blowing off of roofs onto their heads.

On the way home I stopped once to help someone push a giant bin back out of the road (one of these things), found another one blown over near the flat, and was generally very happy to get in out of the wind.

And then bracknellexile posted this picture on FB:

which is of the next street over from me, and shows a roof lying in the middle of the road (and the bits of remaining roof on the right hand side).

The original plan had been to go out tonight for dinner. I think we'll put that one on hold...
