More storm force winds coming for Scotland - get those dishes secure! This is from the bbc:

A new weather alert is being issued with storm force winds and snow forecast to hit the Western Isles and other parts of Scotland.
North and western areas could see winds gusting up to 70mph overnight on Monday with up to 10cms of snow in places.

Central Scotland is also likely to be affected by drifing snow affecting roads, especially on higher grounds.

You dont need a fancy online checker - if your sat pics disappear the dish has blown away, and theres a storm outside :D

I know of one dish that ended up 4 miles away! Demolished a greenhouse when it landed, and the owner (who had postcoded the dish) was left with a big bill.... :D

A nice idear -perhaps I could arrange for my 3.7 to come your way, it would look quite nice were your greenhouse is ? I would like a bigger dish now anyway, not sure our my insurance would like it though.

Watch those mounts and dont forget when the storm has passed to check for tightness of bolts and any other damage etc

regards

We are getting gale lashed AGAIN tonight. :( However, the dishes have survived so far. The wind howling in the trees outside work tonight was very eerie!
