I did try to organise these images, but I give up!!
The storm that has been lashing Britain also tripped over our little island. Damage from the winds is so far very minimal, the water however is a different story.
With a record breaking spring tide, backed up with swollen rivers and a wind blown storm surge, our island is rather wet at the moment. The police and other services are asking people to stay home and stay warm and dry. Not on your life, the whole island was out with cameras. Some of these images are my own and some are taken from facebook and other public forums.
Hight tide in Ramsey. Almost hip deep.
Can't believe someone left their car on the prom! Look out for this same car in later shots!
The bridge is closed for repairs at the moment. Good thing really.
See that car again? It's moving.
This is not my home town, this is Castletown harbour wall.

Not much of a refuge today.
Port Jack again.
Vollan Crescent, Mooragh prom Ramsey.
The Town is still boarded and bagged as we have another hight tide due at 01.00 ish. Things are predicted to be a little calmer and less damaging by then. I do hope so.
I hope all my family and friends around Britain are warm and dry.
PS, juat saw the weather forecast, there is another storm sitting out over the Atlantic, awaiting it's turn to batter us!
