A bumpy ride

Untitled-1 copyIf you had been taking off from or worse still landing at Alicante airport last night, it would have been a bit bumpy.

After a very windy afternoon, the wind calmed by early evening but quickly picked up again to blow even stronger in the early hours of the morning.

Now, at 8:30, it is a lot calmer out there. It is still a little blustery but nothing like it was yesterday. Let’s hope it stays that way.

PS Although the figures on the graph look dramatic, we have to remember they are in kilometres per hour and that 85kms per hour is actually equivalent to 52 miles per hour. Although 52 mph is a strong wind. it pales into comparison to the 80 miles per hour gales that have lashed to south of England recently.
