That Met Office picture of the winds makes Britain look like Cthulhu in a see through dress trying to devour a wee Irish beat. Look and you'll totally see it, too.

90 mph winds?
Texas got hit with 130 mph winds.
Guess the Europeans are going to have to rethink how they build stuff after the ancient buildings get blown over.

To put it all into perspective, those lighthouses were built to handle this kind of thing and they were built at least 100 years ago. That tells me that it's nothing new.

Yeah, it's there.  This is probably just Mosura's way of reminding us we need to donate to Cairde Sinn Fein.

you need to convert it to metric, so 90 mph is really eighty-thirty-two CPH
/it's a hard "C"

Elenor with all this storm activity I think you're swell

But those lighthouses were Ireland's pride and joy et cetera.

Well, that was a noisy night. *rubs eyes, looks out of window* Okay, why is there a lighthouse out there, and what's with all the little people singing about dead witches?

Buildings are not getting blown over. People are just being warned about possible power outages and flying debris.
