  1. 'Mon the winter thunderstorms! Woken with a loud bang again last night the went back to sleep. Hersel' said it went on for over an hour. What's driving this though? Are we looking at classic temperature gradients or is it a product of wind sheer? Can't get my head round where the energy is coming from in cold weather.
  2. Had a lightning flash in Thornton Fife a few minutes ago
  3. Falkland Palace have so many windfall apples and pears they have a stall at the gates with a "help yourself and any donation would be appreciated". We have a freezer stuffed with blackberrys from before the storm and it looks like we'll be making enough apple and blackberry jam for the year.
  4. Been looking online for jam jars, hersel' has been at the brambles and has also been given a load of cooking apples. Cheapest online works out over £1.00 per jar + postage. ASDA selling value jam at £0.28 per 454g jar. Anyone care to explain?
  5. Totally nuts sky tonight! Best display of noctilucent clouds I've seen in a good while. Still haven't sussed how to up load pics ( I know - sadsack!)
  6. Most of the money for the 2014 fire refurb was raised through international appeals. The GSA was nearing completion but still had scaffolding and builders safety curtains. I'm just idly wondering if this created a chimney for the fire to escalate so rapidly, especially if the 02 did go up first. Speculation I know and doubtless more evidence and pics will emerge once the investigators can get access to the buildings.
  7. Odd? Looks very much like the 02 was well alight before the GSA
  8. After an extensive fire in 2014 the GSA was nearing completion of £30M refurbishment. Last night anther fire appears to have completely destroyed the building an damaged adjacent properties. An iconic building gone. Please don't make this political but especially in light of Grenfell the cause needs to be established quickly. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-44504659
  9. Marketing: more junk plastic wrappinng declaring: Luxury Dishcloths! It's a chuffin' dishcloth you bozos!
  10. Ok, old method works fine again. Does happy dance!
  11. As stated previously, tablet (android) running kitkat. No option to get into editor, only insert other media. Post editor, after posting works but still no way to upload images. All very well blaming the browser but short of downloading some sort of Linux (ain't going to happen!) program I am stuck with it. I understand the 'live' issue of posting links to constantly updating charts etc. ( Take a screenshot!) But what on earth was wrong with the old (ancient?) way of posting image tags without the need for fancy posting input forms? Test Failed Edit, ye
  12. No, this is exactly the problem. I am faced with. Maybe try it on a grown up PC later but fast getting to the point where I can't be bothered. I appreciate folk are trying to be helpful but this is very frustrating especially given the other changes and having to wait while pages jump all over the place as other images and background stuff load.
  13. There are two galleries, one seems to belong to Netweather, the other exists independently on my tablet. Unable to get the two to talk to eachother. Image I posted of the panoramic winter scene of Bishop Hill taken while standing on a frozen Loch Leven is somewhere in my stuff on Netweather uploaded some time ago. Have downloaded an aurora pic from Facebook of an aurora at St. Andrews to my tablet ( btw, Facebook degrades images somewhat) but can see no way to upload to this or any other thread. Just feel I'm wasting my time doing something that in essence is perfectly simple an
  14. Taking a break from Netweather. Unable to post images in a sensible fashion and gagged at the most important time in Scot Pol. Doesn't seem much point. Maybe return when aurora season kicks off or if there's a good display of NC
