  1. Hi fellow snow lovers. For a bit of fun I came up with this little rhyme in homage to the inevitable "where's my snow" frustration in one of the regional threads the other night 🙂 It's been downgrade after downgrade I knew it all along And now I feel I've been betrayed The warnings are so wrong The Met Office are total crap They said it would track west So where's the snow gone from my app? It's making me depressed There's naff all coming from that front It's weaker than expected Don't mean to be a whinging **** But God, I'm so dejected It's nothing

  4. In theory though, if a country has a healthier than average population they can be expected to live longer and thus there will be a higher proportion of elderly people. Following this logic, having a less healthy population in itself would not necessarily mean a higher death rate, just that the average age of people dying would be younger. There are so many factors that influence the death rate, from how much testing has been done and how many deaths are being directly attributed to the disease, to the demographics of a population and of course the ability of the health service to cope (
  5. Folks can watch the game on telly at least. I was thinking it would be cool if there was a way they could mic up the TV viewers then broadcast the noise into the stadium!
  6. This might be worth a watch later tonight. Trump is downplaying the severity of the situation and is said to be "furious with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention over briefings given to the public and the resultant drop in the market due to panicking investors". White House spokesman Judd Deere stated, ““Unfortunately what we are seeing today is a political effort by the Left and some in the media to distract and disturb the American people with fearful rhetoric and palace intrigue. The United States economy is the strongest in the world thanks to the leadership and policies of Pr
  7. Me too, wouldn't like to be in their position. Unfortunately this is the risk that anyone travelling abroad at the moment is taking. The concern (from the powers that be) isn't that the people within the quarantine zone might get infected, the concern is that if they aren't quarantined they will likely spread the disease. Hence it's not for their benefit (quite the opposite in fact) it's for everybody else's.
  8. I think the police turned up just so they could move the sign back a few yards lol
  9. Part of the coast path near Swanage has gone too. Two places I know well! Swanage coastal path collapses as Storm Dennis brings wind and rain to Dorset WWW.BOURNEMOUTHECHO.CO.UK PART of the coastal path near Swanage is collapsing as Storm Dennis lashes Dorset this afternoon.
  10. Just found this: Farson Digital Watercams, the world's first network of HD cameras broadcasting live from the UK's and Republic of Ireland's waterways.

  11. For my area (east Wiltshire) the forecast is heavy rain from 7pm today right through until Sunday afternoon/evening, bar two hours of drizzle on Saturday morning. 48 hours of continuous rain? Winds are at least 10% down on the forecast for Ciara though (which makes the forecast for this weekend similar to what we got last weekend in terms of actual wind speeds). I'm not sure I can ever remember such a long period of heavy rain on the forecast! Shame it's not snow eh?
  12. Have come across a couple of useful links on other forum, so thought I'd share here. 1. Interview with Marc Lipsitch, professor of epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and head of the School’s Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics Harvard expert says coronavirus likely now ‘gathering steam’ NEWS.HARVARD.EDU Harvard’s Marc Lipsitch said evidence indicates that the international cordon keeping coronavirus cases bottled up in China is a leaky one, and it’s likely that... 2. Interesting graphs and timeline.
  13. It's become increasingly clear how highly contagious this virus is. Spreads through the air, lies on surfaces for a week and people can be asymptomatic for 5 days. I've been following things closely for 3+ weeks now and it gets worse by the day. A pandemic is inevitable, if we are not there already. The WHO and the media (contrary to my initial thoughts) have been behind the curve from the start. It is also telling that the Chinese leadership are doing everything they can to prevent the outside world finding out what is really going on.
  14. Which is equivalent to one year's population growth. https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/world-population-by-year/
