Morning – attempted to leave our house for DEFA St Johns only to find a large tree had fallen halfway down our drive. Well beyond my capabilities! I arranged for a lift to St Johns and fortunately one of our neighbours who is very proficient with a chainsaw managed to cut the tree up and free up the drive by late morning. This was even before the storm properly started.

Morning meeting with IOM Creamery representatives to discuss whey disposal followed by CEO catch up and preparation for Tynwald on Tuesday.
