- 22nd March 2013
22nd March 2013The North, South, and the west part of the island were smothered in snow over night. Up to 16ft snow drifts in places, the island was without mains power for days. A huge response from SSE, Police, Fire & Rescue, Coastguard, Mountain Rescue, NHS, NAC and even the RNLI all teamed up to give support and supplies to hose who needed it until the roads were passable, and some normality could resume. This weather event gained global media coverage.

Boxing Day 1998This was the weather event which got me interested in meteorology. This night was truly astonishing. The wind was forecast, but not quite as much as we experienced. Huge sections of roof from the sheds on the farm were ripped off and flew through the air and landed, rather neatly, but noisily at our front door at half past ten at night. In the pitch black, the power had gone out many hours before this. Each section easily weighed near a tonne. 103mph was recorded at Prestwick Airport (PIK) and 113mph at Ardrossan Harbour, it wouldnt surprise me if those gusts in Sannox that night exceeded these values.
