  1. morning all, hope none of you have lost a roof overnight, wont find out till i get home later. had roof cladding come loose in the night and two windows got blown out, very noisy night to say the least
  2. Met and beeb are keeping stum, on what is to come. Wonder why?
  3. thats just fine by me, already have all my cold weather gear packed and ready to go.
  4. got everything i can cross, crossed for this. Finish work on the 15th for 15 days second half of that will be spending time in the lakes.
  5. 4.1C 97mm hope i'm totally wrong and the temp goes south but with the Atlantic firing at blighty who knows
  6. Mine is still set up for last winter, on the odd occasion it's fired up for ten mins or so over the past week or two. However l think the dramatic drop in temps this saturday will have it firing up for much longer periods.
  7. Click bait, the more people click the more advertising revenue they collect,
  8. Rain on and off throughout the night sometimes very heavy indeed. very noisey due to the metal roof. as i'm at work not sure of the temp but felt rather mild.
  9. 21 days without a drop then at 1725 on Friday the 13th BOOM 12mm in just 20 mins. As it passed, trailing edge gave some rather mean & loud thunder claps. should do enough to dampen the tinder dry moorland and give the fire brigade a break
  10. I've been on nights since monday and i'm starting to feel like a zombie, have only managed to get 3, 4hours max (if i'm lucky) due to the day time heat so good luck
  11. Not had much in the way of heavy rain in my location, seems to skirt around either side. Mind you, i do have part of my foof off at present so it can stay away until the builders have finished
  12. Oceanography was a job that i hoped would turn into a life long career but family issues forced me to change my path in life but i still follow all i can on the subject. I don't believe the AMOC will stop like some doom sayers mention but even a small reduction in the flow will and i believe already has begun to change the weather in the UK.
  13. Regular bus service from hanley to leek. From there you can comute to Rudyard or blackshaw moor
  14. Come on matt, chin up. Theres still time and if all else fails you can drive up the road into the moorlands tomorrow. Mate of mine took 3 hours to get from Leek to Rushton, ended up dumping his car and getting a friend to pick him up in a landy.
