Theres another massive low pressure coming in from the west, bringing the predicted chaos to the UK roads, delaying our Christmas plans of heading off to the bright light of London Town.
However I love this time of year, battering down the hatches, wood burner at full tilt and the nights closing in. The water is cold and the surf windows are small, but this is the time when you can surf alone in crisp solid waves.
So although my mind is focussing on festive merriment, my heart is already over the hump, we've passed the shortest day and like that scene in the 'perfect storm' - I can glimpse the rays of light through the dark moody sky. Winter you rock, merry cheer to ye all !
