  1. I cannot remember which Hurricane or year it was but I remember watching one roll in and whilst some people were fleeing others were heading to the surf with their surfboards!

      Well.. you can just laugh at me in the South East Regional thread when I get all my forecasts wrong instead :smile:

      i'll leave the laughing at the beeb, for when they forecast phantom snow

  3. Whereabouts in Beighton are you Marie?! I seem to remember you telling me last time it snowed, memory like a sieve though
  4. So happy to see! I hope that U.S. Brightonians can manage even just a few flakes
  5. I agree. Also, why so much confidence from the BBC. Maybe the GFS is right to line up with ECM, who knows (yet) - I do feel it is the knee-jerk reactions that let this forum down though. As a long-time watcher, I much prefer it when comments are made on the actual output in a straight-forward way rather than tit for tat between models.
  6. They are also gritting in Brighton
  7. Wow, that certainly gives a little bit of hope
  8. I read in the Storm Imogen thread that a roof was blown off and landed further down the line. The Station became overcrowded and then closed?
  9. And as I explained in depth earlier (many times), you took it completely out of context. We were talking about how the storm felt, the ambience of it. "I know, I keep telling myself that it'll just be a normal storm but this one feels different. That "otherness" which, looking back, I can remember on the eve of the 1987. Maybe I've just had too much red wine though. " Me: " I know what you mean by feeling it could become possibly close" The very short banter was how we thought it felt different to other storms in the past because it was so fierce last night. That's where I was going with it anyway. Not once did I think it would be like 1987 of which I remember very well which is why I stated that "I doubt if it will be like 87" <---- you keep glossing over that bit. Sorry to confuse you but you took me way out of context. And the guy I was talking too. In fact the whole conversation. But... you know that. Please can you stop quoting me in future as you totally misunderstood me. Thanks.
  10. I'm working My colleagues are looking at me wondering why i've got steam coming out of my ears - they'd find it hilarious if they actually knew the weather was the reason why!! I'm up near brighton station, on the 7th floor - it's wild out there - looking forward to the school run.
  11. To be honest I don't care what you think. I am not so stupid as to be so bold as to say it was going to be 1987 again as i'd open myself up to people like you. There are too many of them about.
  12. i'm glad you understand - it was a *feeling* of danger looming.
  13. Try to understand the context like 99% of people do here.
  14. And you grabbed hold of that? Give me a break.
