not my box brownie - rather it's Al's dodgy website!

Al - trying to load an image only 152kb - and I get an error that it is too big...!

And I'm not often told that

It's probably too big then. I've probably set the max size for images in the forum to be around 100kb, but I can't remember off the top of my head. That should be plenty big enough for photos. It's pretty much the limit I set myself for any photo on websites. Why does it have to be that big?... It could be the dimensions rather than the file size as well as I'm sure I set a limit for that once somewhere as well!

Email me the photo and I'll optimise it for the web for you and upload it.

Or alternatively put it in the photo galleries and link to it there, as the limits are a little more generous in the photo galleries.

i was at borth today, and the carpark is still flooded, most people where parking at the end of the shingle, pot holed track, but you could just about park on the left if you dont mind driving through a few inches of water..

most of the grass banks are deep in pebbles, and where you used to jump over the wooden groins there is no drop off just now filled with pebbles.

certainly taken a battering,

mind you on the plus side out the wind it was loverly and sunny with blue skies and a 15knts wind

Despite the car park being flooded is anyone thinking of going out tomorrow? Wind seems to drop a bit..I may give a go (at least take a look) at midday!

I can't make it today - and the wind hasn't dropped much yet. I need to get out soon before the withdrawal symptoms get more severe!

Did you get out? I saw a kite up around 11:30 but couldn't get out myself as I had to take Morgan to a birthday party and go shopping for ingredients for a massive Biryani.... Mmm Mmmmm!

It looked pretty rough out there though and the wind has been pretty gusty too.

Yep, we're OK, but the power went out when that gust hit and hasn't come back on yet.

The weather station is still up and running though, I just can't upload the data to the web.

We had to cook on the wood burning stove last night under candle-light. The nicest jacket potatoes ever though!
