^ I think Tim said on the main-thread that, "the track to the turbines is approximatly 2 hours 1 way".

Seems to be awfully confusing having 2 separate threads for the same event? :-s

This thread was only intended for the forecast not about the event in itself.

If its about the event post back in the other thread.....
