The UK Meteorological Office has been giving severe storms their own name since 2015. This year we’ve already had Angus, Barbara and Conor – the next on the list is Doris. Although the stormy weather we’re having on the island today is not severe enough to be named I’m thinking that the name Doris suits it just fine. The beach at Balemartine has been swept clean by the wind and the tides and the sea has that wonderful turbulent character. Great to watch from the shore but no fun for those out in small boats.
