  1. ooh unexpected light snow.... edit: Now hail and snow again...
  2. good snow here in NE essex for last 15 minutes, settling for now, I know it is only showers, but nice to see. Heavy and 50p size flakes.
  3. There is an enormous lack of respect for other people in this thread at the moment. I suggest that if one doesn't have something to add to the model discussion with a salient chart or pertinent information, then do not add anything. If you don't like another's tone, life view, implicit or explicit opinions, just ignore them or block them. It is not up to contributors to put other people in their place, or "correct" them. Let the mods do their job. Leave the space for discussion of the models and leave the majority of silent and interested readers and learners with a nice set of discussions to follow. Other types of interventions and comments say more about the commenter than the original poster.
  4. Blowing up a hoolie here. The pouring rain is being blown through the tightly shut French doors. Things moving around on the deck in the gusts.
  5. Severe flooding in Somerset

    I couldn't agree more. Although there are some notable cases where aid donations should be looked at with a very serious eye - India, Pakistan, Nigeria to name but three) there is no-one in this country that has to experience poverty and deprivation on anywhere near a scale experienced in the 3rd world. I suggest people go and visit a 3rd world country decimated by a natural disaster, BEFORE they start making comparisons.We should not be viewing this as an "either or" situation, as an economy we are rich enough to do both foreign aid and look after ourselves better. Don't penalise those who have nothing because we can't budget properly.
  6. It's warning of the storm and high water levels on the west coast.
  7. Indian Summer is a period of warmth after the first frosts. Origin is in parts of North America and usually means in November. But rarely applies to the UK. Nothing to do with September or October.
  8. Currently 24.8C and sunny, as it has been for most of the day except for one wee shower at about 2pm. Not a soggy Monday at all, rather a very pleasnt one, with that wonderful August light. Another delightful summer's day.
