After the damage and disruption of last week’s Hurricane Bawbag, you’d think St Andrews has had its share of extreme weather for the winter. Well, you were wrong.

As of 14.00 today, winds of up up to 80mph have been tearing through the town once again. As of 16.00, the Tay Bridge is closed to trains and there have been warnings that similar closures might affect routes to Edinburgh.

Early warnings of the gale were seen when seagulls took off from Market Street roofs en masse and Hamish the Cat was spotted darting in out of doorways for cover. Second Year, Claes Winberg observed, “If Hamish doesn’t find shelter soon his coat will be ruined. I have tuna and a hair dryer at home and I’ve been on high Hamish alert all day.”

Keep an eye on the stand or on the BBC for updates if you are traveling home this evening.
