I was having a tidy up the other day in my room when I stumbled across a few printoffs from 2005, when I was eleven. It was, unsurprisingly to most on the forum, a five day weather forecast by the BBC and STV from the 2005 Boxing Day easterly. The date printed? Christmas Eve. It was at that moment that I realised just how obsessed I had become with the weather, moreso in winter than summer of course, from when I was just nine or ten. Another thought also crossed my mind, and that was that the 2005 easterly had largely been erased from my mind somehow, so that when people mentioned it on the model thread I would think 'that sounds like a situation which would deliver here but for the life of my I can't remember it!' I then realised that I was in Edinburgh on the 27th/28th which saw no lying snow while I remember getting home to find two or three inches of the stuff later on the 28th [url="http://www.wetterzentrale.de/pics/archive/ra/2005/Rrea00120051228.gif"]http://www.wetterzentrale.de/pics/archive/ra/2005/Rrea00120051228.gif[/url]It's a very nice chart though, like a watered down '87, and I guess Edinburgh does less well out of a southeasterly than Fife.But that's not the point of this entry at all. What I wanted to ask was at what age did you become properly interested/addicted in/to weather and why? It just seems such a peculiar interest to many other people my age outside the forum but the appeal to me seems fairly obvious - the drama of the changes in model output, the most innocent and pure pleasure of watching snow fall, the banter with those who also understand these, not to mention the fundamental connection between meteorology and almost every activity partaken on this earth.Will update the blog with NMM/fax charts if and when more interesting weather comes into the reliable timeframe i.e. 72 hours.Keep the Model Thread and hence all the other members and moderators happy by trying to stick on topic and avoid aggression/saying things for the sake of making a noise!LS
