No power this morning when we woke up, quite exciting really until the hours clicked away and then rather frustrating. But anyway it's back on now. Hurricane Kyle
was to blame as it moved around the south and west of us....
..... at 35 knots. Didn't get a chance to finish that sentence as the screen went dead and we've just had another 90 minutes of no power again. The beauty of living on a tropical island I s'pose. Hurricane Kyle is the 11th tropical storm of the summer, the 2nd one that has passed near Bermuda with just over a month left of the Atlantic hurricane season.
Hurricane Kyle was still 242 nautical miles (about 278 miles) west of us but the winds and rain were certainly strong enough to wake us up. Drowsily I used the unexpected opportunity to look out across Hamilton Harbour from the front windows of our house at the flickering lights of the capital with a backdrop of complete darkness. Quite a sight.
