  1. Hiking for beginners - are there any experts here who can advise on good UK and European spots for an enthusiastic noob? And how to start? And how to develop? Currently a local woodlands and hills walker, with the odd bit of London pavement hiking thrown in.

      I'm really impressed by the benefits of walking, I have read a lot of articles that basically suggest if the benefits of walking could be bottled, I couldn't afford the bottle! I love being out in the countryside anyway, the higher the mountain the better. Can't quite picture myself scaling mountain tops though! And of course 'pedestrianism' was once America's favourite spectator sport!

  2. Really lovely footage and music there, excellent:) What dashcam do you use and is it simple? It's on my wish list, even if I would only be recording 250 miles of the London suburbs in the rush hour each week!

      Hi thanks for the comments. Its a Nextbase 402G dashcam, got it from Halfords for around 140 quid, and its so simple to use. Not only do I use it for weather related stuff, I also drive for a living so my risk of an accident is higher than normal so its good to have everything on film for insurance purposes! Would definatley recommend the Nextbase 402G :) Any more questions feel free to ask!

      Thanks for that, really helpful, and yes I did wonder if you drive for a living watching the footage:)

  3. It's impossible to walk along Sandbanks beach these days without seeing at least two dead jelly fish washed up on the shore. Apparently they are turning up all along the south coast. Anyone know of any weather connection, or it just plankton?

      Numbers of jellyfish all over the world have increased massively due to a mixture of higher water temps, their preadtors decreasing in numbers and in increase in plankton due to pollution.

  4. Have some sympathy with this asking what does it take to get snow when we have such great conditions showing stratospherically. I've been watching the model discussion thread for years now, but only now have I really witnessed what a knife-edge we are on in the UK to get deep cold and snow. Ah well, next 'bite of the cherry' here we come!

  5. River Thames report from Kingston Bridge at 8am - a very brown and slightly rough river this morning, water still quite high, but some canoeists braving it:)

  6. Call me childish, but it was just too much fun driving through puddles the width of the car this morning. Never seen so much water on my journey from Surbiton to Uxbridge!

  7. Wondering whether to take son out to Littleworth Common, Esher to see how the tadpoles are progressing - they were just emerging a few weeks ago, very small indeed. We both like being out and about in the rain; but will we get the thunder and lightening this afternoon?

  8. This reminds me, still seeking good weather app for mobile; via Twitter: Met Office app makes it into The Guardian's Top 50 Android phone apps http://gu.com/p/367vf/tw via @guardian

  9. Pouring with rain in Surbiton Surrey right now, wondering what it will be like at Heathrow this evening to pick up husband. Just heard Stephen Merchant's voice on my son's Xbox game Portal 2 - just seemed so wierd:/

  11. In addition to the US tornadoes, it seems that NZ is experiencing #weatherbomb is leading to warnings there to stay safe, get livestock and pets indoors etc.

  12. Watching the Accuweather Twitter feeds on what is happening with the tornadoes in US, especially around Kentucky. Sounds very bad there.
