  1. It's raining! Proper rain for the first time in over 3 weeks!
  2. Am I missing something here? Are you really suggesting that a current commercial aircraft will get to 800mph? And that the transatlantic record will be broken? i) I don't know of any current commercial airliner that breaks the sound barrier ii) The record from New York to Paris is held by a Lockheed SR-71 which took 1 hour and 45 minutes
  3. Don't post very often, but lurk on the model thread daily so it's rude not to put a face to the name. Well, a short video rather than a pic! I'd just sussed out the intro to a famous Bond tune, so here it is along with the first verse:- https://youtu.be/e6jLPuvMIiQ
  4. Is it just me, or - based on this documentary of the 1987 "Great Storm" - does this incoming system remind one of the same? Bitterly cold preceding winter, abnormally hot summer, very wet in places during Autumn. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIQX9UhOhwU&t=121s
  5. Nothing measurable here since 27th May I've never seen the lawns and verges so parched
  6. Well, that was an EPIC couple of hours! Constant rolling thunder from 16:30 to 18:45, with some huge CG. My wife and I decided to head out in the car to find a good vantage point, and we ended up in Cosford. It was biblical there, and the main crossroads was under three feet of water. The scale, frequency, and sheer noise of the lightning and thunder was unbelievable.
  7. It's only "snizzle" but still coming down here! That must be 18 hours solid snowfall
  8. It's been constant snow for well over 12 hours now, and mrs. dusk's weather app is forecasting it not to stop until 23:00. 6" cover on top of the cars on the drive
  9. A good couple of inches in TF2 earlier, and the roads were pretty much gridlocked. Forty minutes to get from Donnington to the M54
  10. Melted now; hey ho I did say to mrs dusk earlier, however, that seeing snow falling that is lit up by a street light is strangely appealing (and I hate winter on a cellular level)
  11. That model thread is getting impossible to follow, for me. Just before I left the office, the page count was 184; it's now 189. Mental
  12. That's a disgrace! (No, seriously, that is) Whatcha getting out of curiosity? My next daily drive is likely to be a V50 T5
