Windy

Just got home - the late flight home from Luton eventually touched down about a quarter to midnight. (By the time EZY173 was finally called for boarding - though as we all lined up in A, B, C and D queues, there wasn't yet a plane sitting outside the window on the tarmac - all the airside terminal shops etc had closed, with no way to get that final cup of tea.)

Though when the plane pulled up at its stand, it was shaking from side to side in the wind.

On the road back to Belfast, a fallen tree was blocking one side of the road in Templepatrick, and there were branches strewn every mile or so along the M2.

(Not to mention the Range Rover driver who drove like a maniac about the distance of a cardboard box behind my car as I came past the Odyssey, which had an unusual amount of folliage on the bridge - unusual given the lack of trees nearby.)

So take care if you're on the roads in the morning. Methinks I'll be tucked up in bed.

Dontcha just love them, the way they augment their reputation as environmental thugs by being bad drivers as well? I usually find a sudden squeeze on the brakes can put the wind up them and cause them to drop back significantly.
