The remains of Hurricane Katia are blowing across Ireland today. I’d planned some outings, but with the windiness, I decided to stay in and work on music.

Here’s a YouTube video someone took of what these winds are like on the Atlantic Coast. It was taken at Malin Head, which is rather a long way north and west of my location in Co. Offaly. The winds here in the midlands are not quite as strong as they are on the coast.

Because of these winds, flights have been cancelled, ferries have cancelled voyages, and small craft warnings are in effect. This should blow through in the next 24 hours, so I don’t anticipate any difficulties traveling to Scotland on Thursday.
