The usual rundown of misdeeds greets us on Isles FM at the start of thee day. Reasonable weather today, albeit with a very dark start. Sunrise is not until well after 9, so no surprises there. Continuing coverage of the fire in Hertfordshire, where they are congregating all the necessary stuff for putting out those fires. They need to spray 32,000 litres (8,000 gallons) of water a minute, with foam added in. Mention is made of the incident with Spanish John II off the isle of Rum, which is resulting in an official inquiry. Another regular guest turns up at 5pm, but it'll be his last visit for the year. Mrs B finally locates the lights for the Christmas tree. 120 of them are wrapped around the tree.
