The winds have dropped, as has part of the trusses on the roof of the former Kilchoman Church denying the Jackdaws and Starlings of a roosting site at night. The rest of the weather forecast was correct too, in the aspect that snow was predicted. We got some but not a lot, and it was soon all gone, probably just as well as the Council workers would have to look out the snowplough which will probably not have been used for several years.
The rainfall here, for January was 7.25", compared with 8" in January 2007. Refering to the weather, the total rainfall for 2007 was 48" and we usually reckon an annual total average of around 55".
