I don't know how much media attention this has been getting around the world, but today winds of up to 165mph hit some parts of Scotland. The wind is strong enough for it to be listed as a Category 6 Hurricane (the highest category on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale). This sort of weather is very unusual for this country, we don't typically get winds as strong as that...although it has been not far off in the past.

On Twitter though, when deciding what this Storm should be called the final title given was "Hurricane Bawbag". I find it very funny because of the definition of the word "Bawbag" in Scotland means "Scrotum". It is oddly great to know that collectively through social media there is a large portion of people out there who have influenced the name of this storm to not only the average joe but some media organisations as well.
