Once the storm is over

"And once the storm is over, you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive.  You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over.  But one thing is certain, when you come out of the storm, you won't be the same person who walked in."  -- Unknown

New Aberdour Churchyard overlooks the sea

Headed out for a drive along the coast this afternoon.  The wind was blowing a gale in places and we watched waves breach sea wall defences as we passed through some of the coastal villages here in the far NE of Scotland.  It was freezing cold standing outside in the wind and felt more like winter than autumn. I made a mad dash to get back to the warmth of the car after venturing outside just long enough to take a few photos in Rosehearty (one of the coastal villages we passed through).  Next we travelled along the coast to New Aberdour before heading home.  The tide was coming in fast and furious and the caves by the shore were flooded with water.  We wouldn't be checking them out this time around unfortunately.

If this is what the cold is like in autumn, I can't say I'm looking forward to winter this year.  Forecasters are predicting severe weather conditions.  Mind they say that every year, but I could just be tempted to believe them this time around!

What's the temperature like in your part of the world at the moment?  Please feel free to share in the comments below.  I would love to hear from you.

Gorgeous image Wendy! Those waves are incredible and a little scary! So that's what weather you've been having! We've barely had any autumn weather yet, I wish I could send a bit of the warmth your way! :-)

It's been so cold and windy Jillian. I have a dose of the cold virus at the moment. I'm sure the weather hasn't helped. Guess it's that time of the year for viruses and bugs.
