  1. All this talk about global warming, CO2 etc and what did the world do at midnight? Pumped a load of more air pollution into the atmosphere by letting a load of fireworks off....Boy I'm a cynic...😁

      You're at least more of an optimist than I am.

  2. Well another year of timelapses done. Here's hoping to an even more meteorologically interesting 2019  with thunderstorms this time

      Ha, I was just thinking that yesterday. It's actually astonishing how bad it is. When the bad guy carries the woman into space at the end and she is somehow still alive...

      And will happen again unless there's  major investment  in oil refineries and storage in UK

    2. Despicable Weather

      Despicable Weather

      Remember it well only being 7 mile away, curtains sucked out of open window then blown in and up to hit the ceiling! Made for a breath stopping moment in the darkness, sure glad injuries were minimal and that it wasn't what I thought it was in those first 60 seconds!

      I remember it well as running service stations on the m1 at the time. Complete chaos of closed motorway was followed by the disruption to fuel supplies(although the government assured us there would be no problems!!!). Luckily for me Motorway services are classed as the priority customer after emergency services and armed forces so we were able to keep supplies available - albeit with long queues and some rationing!! 

      I also remember driving down to the site and wondering exactly how nobody had lost their lives in the destroyed factories and industrial units surrounding the site.

       

  6. What a washout, today has been.

      Very much the same here. Wettest November I have recorded on this station, and 2" of rain in the past 5 days.

  7. So what happens to storm name Deirdre? Met office have a list of named storms and the date when they are used? Diana isn't in that list.

      Named by Portuguese met service using their list, I think what happens now is the next named storm will have to start with E, from somebody's list. 

      Not 100% sure about that, maybe they use up the unused name Deirdre anyway. In England it will be deer-dree and in Ireland deer-druh (I learned much about this from a Deirdre herself).

      It's almost like we need some sort of European co-operation amongst neighbours to come up with a list for the continent....:whistling:

      It is sad to hear of the death Stan Lee.  I thought that he would still be with us for many years to come. My favourite were the X-Men, particularly Storm.

      I remember watching the Spiderman cartoons in the 70's which I greatly enjoyed along with the live Hulk TV series.

  12. 18 years ago today, it snowed for a time

      Thundery wintry showers

      I, too, was reminded somewhat of 8 October 1995 by both the weather and the synoptic setup today.  These sort of long draw southerlies that pull in drier tropical continental air are clearly still capable of bringing very warm and sunny weather at this time of year.  It's even possible late in the month - 27 October 2005 also springs to mind.

      October 31st 2014 and November 1st 2015 as well? I know it was a bit hit and miss and some places had lingering fog in the 2015 event but where it cleared it really was exceptionally warm and sunny. I recall differences even between different areas of Manchester with it staying cooler in the foggy areas and where it cleared it was much warmer. There does seem to be a modern trend for warm weather in the last week of October.

  16. 7 years ago today

      Ha ha let them boil 

  25. England have been mugging their fans for years and the mugs (fans) are still suppling on the shrivelled 1966 nipple for comfort. Well the ones that are over 52 years old! 1966 might as well be in the Victorian age to anyone born after 1966.

      It was not hard to improve on the last tournament, we got beaten by plasterers and accountants or were they shelf stackers from Iceland
