  1. Thanks for all the replies. Just to add that I also have no Patella which I lost in a cricketing accident many years ago. this has been a major obstacle throughout and it's one component of the knee joint which is vital in the stability stakes. The extensor mechanism reconstruction was to try and build up the space between my quad muscle and the missing Patella and give my knee joint more stability, it's early days yet but I'm still finding my knee giving way at the most inappropriate moments, hopefully this will resolve itself as time goes on.

  2. The only thing I see is PV stayingvto NW and very little change to overall pattern. I think we may see low heights to NW lift a touch as we enter Feb allowing HP be more dominant. But mid lat HP and not Arctic. Until then more of the same......and longer term? No major flip in my mind. I mentioned other day the HP to our SW is a major cold pain.BFTP

    Much as I see the way forward Fred, silk purse. sows ear springs to mind. At least next weekend gives some of us the opportunity of seeing something wintry  possibly, but I still can't see anything in any output I've seen to get excited about.

  3. Just read Gibby's update on his site nothing wintry on his latest update I'm afraid

    And why should their  be as I'm finding it increasingly difficult to make a case for a pattern change to anything cold, yes there is uncertainty in the model output from next weekend onwards, but that's all it is uncertainty and for me the form horse looks to be a continuation of an Atlantic driven pattern as we head into February and beyond, hopefully I'm wrong.

  4. Dr Jennifer Francis is a long way from being a crank.


    Jennifer Francis earned a B.S. in Meteorology from San Jose State University in 1988 and a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Washington in 1994. As a professor at Rutgers University since 1994, she taught courses in satellite remote sensing and climate-change issues, and also co-founded and co-directed the Rutgers Climate and Environmental Change Initiative. Presently she is a Research Professor with the Rutgers Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences and studies Arctic climate change and Arctic-global climate linkages with ~40 peer-reviewed publications on these topics. During the 13 months from July 2009-July 2010, her family of four spent a year sailing through Central America. She and her husband circumnavigated the world in a sailboat from 1980-1985, including Cape Horn and the Arctic, which is when she first became interested in Arctic weather and climate.


    I was being factious knocker, he sounds a quite a character.

  5. SI, can you please post such stuff to your thread. There you might post any opinions you have about Dr of blog science Mr 'Goddard's' revelations (because it's almost as if you ritual attacks on GW are a distraction from the embarrassment 'Goddard' is). 

    I think you'll find I'm not Godarrds biggest fan hence my post further up, and as for attacks well being called a misleader is ok then is it?

  6. Awww, C'mon Dev! give them back the rope! they 've already been tying the right knots (and right before our eyes)....... could you not have left them alone a little longer?(LOL)


    I do have to wonder at the timing of this though? We have the Antarctic sea ice muddle just exposed ( and now being worked on by various teams?) and the prospect of a summer El Nino? There after we are told to expect a Pacific ocean flip to 'warm surface' phase (adding more heat into the atmosphere)?


    I do think that the 'Drivers' of the Misleader movement know that the Hiatus was just about spent but that they did not expect the problems with the Antarctic Sea ice algorithms?


    If you were them what would you do when your teams tell you that there really is an issue with the measure of Sea ice down South ( that will be amended by summer 2014) and so your second favourite 'Squirrel' was about to be taken from you just when Squirrel number 1 was set to evaporate ( along with large portions of the surface of the tropical Pacific...lol) around the same time?


    It's almost as though the misleaders troops on the ground forgot that the current reduction in the rate of atmospheric warming really was a product of some hefty negative forcings and that they could use the 'slowdown' as a proof for ever? Now that they are getting the first whiff of it ending you can almost sense that things are about to turn nasty? I'm sure that the paymasters have not ordered such but the 'troops' they enlisted along the way will not be best pleased to see not only science proved right but them also entering into another 'warming surge'? 


    If at the same time they lose the Antarctic Sea ice as a cudgel , leaving just the accelerating mass loss there, then what do they have to work with?


    You can bet their paymasters have not been idle through the past decade and a half and , being in business, will know when to quit. I'm sure the past 15yrs or so have been an opportunity that they have not wasted ( we'll see no oil barons on skid row) but will they be there for their loyal troops? I think not!


    The hidden paymaster will become world Green leaders with their drives into alternative energy production and their willingness to be seen to be fighting for a safer future by their mitigation efforts!

    Would that be the same summer El Nino you predicted for last summer.Posted Image


    The rest of your post is up to your usual standard, mud slinging by calling all sceptics misleaders. You should be banned for such inflammatory remarks as it does nothing but stoke up the fires.

  7. I haven't had my knees done but I send you good wishes with your recovery anyway,  it sounds long, but sounds that you are now getting there.

    Thanks Jenny, Ives till got a few issues but hopefully over the next year or so they'll ease up. I go and see the consultant in March and then annually to keep tabs on me.
  8. Are we seeing the Hadley Cells move back to the tropics? I thought we saw Prof Francis show us the exact opposite was continuing to occur? Along with the move poleward of the tropics themselves and the 10c ocean isotherm? I'd check you're data SI? doesn't seem to have been generated on planet Earth? Maybe the Martian warming has stopped and it's their data you're using?

    Who is Prof Francis, never heard of him so he must be a crank if you rate him. The Hadley pressure cell has been moving southward over the last 5 years at least and I think I'll listen to Joanna Haigh thank you very much. Also this has nothing to do with your agenda to push all things AGW into every single thread, it becomes tiresome after years of seeing the same repetitive stuff.
  9. James Madden has updated his forecast for February, the opening line is a bit weird

    The final month of the meteorological 2013/14 winter is likely to continue with a cold and snowy regime Posted Image

    How can we continue with a cold and snowy regime when neither has arrived after 7 weeks of winter Posted Image

    But there is still 12 days of the month left and there is an outside chance that the end of this month could be cold and snowy.
  10. Good luck with the recovery SI.I haven't had anything as serious as that, but have had numerous joint issues (ankle, knee, sacroiliac, shoulder) for nearly 3 years due to joint hypermobility syndrome, which was only diagnosed a few months ago.It got to the point last summer where I could barely leave the couch. Luckily, lots of physio, medication and corrective orthotics helped me recover a lot in recent months, and a few weeks ago I had my first, albeit short, mountain hike since December 2011. I've been given the go ahead to try some jogging again in just over a weeks time too, which I'm anxiously looking forward to.

    I'll have to do a quick google of that symptom BFTV, but being housebound isn't pleasant more so if you enjoy the outdoors. I spent two years on crutches and at times I felt hopeless and worthless,good luck with your recovery and I'll have a read up on it.
  11. The research being carried out by Joanna Haigh on UV output is very enlightening. IMO this plays an important role in the poleward movement of the Hadley Pressure Cell over the last thirty years and it's interesting now that UV output has fallen that we are seeing this migrate back towards the Tropics.

  12. Last March I underwent a Total Knee Replacement as well as a having my extensor mechanism of the knee reconstructed. The road to recovery was and remains long and painful though now I can actually get out hillwalking albeit only 8 or 9 miles with the aid of hiking poles is a godsend. Are there any other forum members who've had a knee replacement, I would love to hear your stories on this.

  13. I'm now more than convinced that any cold spell this winter will always be tantalisingly close but never quite make inroads across the UK. This winter certainly has all the hallmarks of a nineties, noughties winter which generally saw a block to our East with the cold remaining bottled up on the other side of the North Sea, whilst we were stuck under a trough out to our West. The west based QBO has certainly been the party pooper this winter combined with a raging PV, at least the pattern is more susceptible to colder PM incursions over the next week or so I suppose.
