  1. Good news to see Trump tested negative and will be fighting fit to lead the US in their battle againt coronavirus.
  2. A good site for tracking the ever growing numbers and countries affected. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/&ved=2ahUKEwi4hbHOipnoAhUJUcAKHW28Bf4QFjAUegQIARAB&usg=AOvVaw3kNWYzks92mP5xVSU6CwDa
  3. Heavy sleet here in Yate. Some nice big flakes amongst the rain. If only it was a touch colder! Edit. Now turned to snow!
  4. Yep, been pouring here in Yate for the last few hours, after intermitent rain overnight and early morning. Winds now very gusty and due to steadily increase, although I think the rain and flooding will be the main story of storm Dennis.
  5. Blowing a serious gale here just north of Bristol. Winds howling round the house. I have serious doubts my garden fence is going to make it through the day!
  6. I think the winds will gradually pick up all day in the London area and peek later so plenty of time to go. Really blowing here now in the Bristol area and not meant to peek here until 6pm.
  7. I would have thought so. Obviously safety has to be taken into account but also the quality of the game. Rugby, football etc being played in a howling gale becomes a bit of a farce. You only had to watch Scotland v England in the rugby yesterday to see that and that not being in the worst of the winds.
  8. Here just north of Bristol I've been woken up by the wind sounding like a train outside. With the wind meant to gradually pick up for the next twelve hours here it's going to be a very interesting day. Stay safe people.
  9. The duration of these strong winds is truly impressive. My area is down for gusts of wind at 40 and 50mph plus from late tonight until the early hours of Tuesday morning.
  10. Totally agree. If the conditions are going to get dangerous, whether it's in London or a small village in the Scottish highlands, the people in those areas, regardless of population size, need to be made aware.
  11. Something for the snow starved. Seven years ago today when I was living in Patchway, Bristol, in what was otherwise was a pretty mild winter.
  12. Bristle boy, where as we've actually done pretty well in our locality over the last ten years with numerous decent snowfalls. Certainly many more than we had through the last half of the 90's through to 2009.
  13. I must say reading through some of the comments you'd think we live in the artic circle. Winters in Britain are generally mild and the weather we've experienced so far this winter has been pretty much the norm. The problem is extreme cold, snowy weather from the past sticks in the brain because it's not the norm, fooling the brain that it happened more often than it actually did. I can assure younger readers that many winters in the 70's and 80's were mundane, mild affairs, pretty much like this winter so far. Things really haven't changed that much.
  14. Well well well a glimmer of hope for some festive weather on the big day. A long way off I know but we can dream. Certainly signs it may turn colder towards Christmas anyway.
