The BBC shows pictures of the water on the course at Castle Stuart. Over on MyNairn you can see a picture of the recent weather we have been experiencing in Nairn. Overnight it seems Castle Stuart was badly hit and play has been suspended again. Not the ideal debut for the competition but at least a bit of extra time for golfing types to wander through Nairn and admire the crumbling structures of the Regal, bus station etc - that all looks at its best in the rain doesn't it? We had a lot of talk about all that mess towards the end of last year and the start of this one but nothing seems to have happened yet. Time for more talk soon - or even a bit of action?
Anyway the rainfall this summer brings to mind the predictions given at a SNH seminar in Nairn last October:
"predictions were for a 40cm sea rise by 2050 and the temperature increasing by 2.5C with dryer summers and wetter winters."
Dryer summers you say? Bring it on!
