Weather is pretty bad. I hear Glasgow's Hogmanay celebrations have been cancelled due to the extreme winds (though Edinburgh's is still going ahead because they're fucking crazy). Gusts have been measuring 70mph. We had a massive gust of wind and rain that lasted 5 minutes or so here that set off all the car alarms on the street it was that fierce. Since then it's been a somewhat more sedate 40mphish.
This is one of those things that makes glad I tend to spend New Year indoors, alone and somewhat miserably (my parents often go out and leave me here to my own devices which suits me fine but looking at the weather....nah).
