  3. Recent storm watching here...
  4. Lovely golden (more than how it looks in the photo) sunset here in Crossgates. Teasing grey clouds keep passing by too.
  5. Wasn't in Leeds on that day, which is typical but this appeared on the local facebook group for Crossgates. It also caused a local 2h power cut in the area too.
  6. I used to hate summer with a passion. 41C in my room during the 2003 hot spell was enough! It took a few years but this year is the 5th summer with A/C. Add on solar panels and all these heatwaves really help lower (and sometimes eliminate) the electric consumption!
  7. I'm a few miles west in Crossgates. It's spitting here....xD!
  8. Ball Lightning

    I saw an unusual lightning bolt during a storm whilst heading back to the depot during summer 2005. It was like an explosion of lightening in the central reservation of a dual carriageway. Ball lightening or just a quick CG, i'll never know.

  13. ''We're betting on a White Christmas: What are the odds on that? As cold weather grips Yorkshire, bookmakers have cut the odds of a White Christmas. Temperatures dropped as low as minus 6ºc in parts of the country over the weekend, with some areas above 150m experiencing snow for the first time this winter.'' http://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/news/trending/we-re-betting-on-a-white-christmas-what-are-the-odds-on-that-1-7585217
  14. North American Weather (U.S.A & Canada)

    Heading to O'Hare on the 3rd Dec. Hope there's no more wintery weather in the works!
  15. Past winters discussion

    Aside from the suprise snow of late January 1995, there was this nice snow event from either Feb 1990 or Feb 1991. I can't remember which year that was now
  16. Scrub the last message... the heavens just opened here! Rain, wind, lightening and constant thunder!
  17. So far some nice storms have skirted by Crossgates, close but not a direct hit
  18. I can see flashes in the sky in Leeds and they don't look distant. Looks all round us. could it be Manchester or is there something developing this side of the Pennines?
  19. Put a hot water bottle in the fridge, freeze the pillowcases*..... *may not work...
  20. I've got Air Conditioning so all windows and doors are usually left shut here.
  21. It can get as hot as it wants... preferrably sunny as i've got Air Con and Solar Panels.
  22. Snow in Leeds, Crossgates now. Didn't think we'd get anything from this! Off to Liverpool tomorrow for a callout...
  23. Nothing in Leeds as I expected. It won't get past the moors.
  24. Heart FM in Yorkshire mentioned the Daily Star story. Nearly threw the radio at them....
