Shopping done!

 

Wind and rain picking up here now.

 

Unfortunately I have to go back out at rush hour to pick the OH up from the tattoo studio and go get Chinese food. Keeping a beady eye on the weather radars, though I suspect I will be going out just as it starts to really kick off!

just in with doggy. one look at radar and i am soooooo glad i'm not going out with him for a while.

Lee-Anne, thats a great photo. make sure you copyright that. its a very good snap and would grace many a postcard in the souvenier shop across the road from you at St Toms

got to go out again soon, but in the car this time.

chilly breeze picked up now and rain headed this way. just light stuff now but not for long me thinks :)

'noon all :D

Raining here now, of course, will no doubt be a puddle-infested drive back down the M25 . Going out in London tonight for a friend's birthday do somewhere along the Strand - probably the first time in years and years for me to do so. I have a feeling all the hair straighteners in the world won't fix the frizz-fest that my hair will be after the deluge hits it during the walk to and from Waterloo. Just as long as it's not the wrong type of rain for the journey home...

 

Have a lovely rest of day everyone.

More wind, more rain, another warning from the Met O - actually it would probably be easier now if we just assumed it's either wet or windy or both until further notice but here is it anyway......

 

Yellow Warning of Wind for London & South East England :

 

Brighton and Hove, East Sussex, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Kent, Portsmouth, West Sussex & Southampton

 

Winds will increase on Saturday, with gusts widely to 50 to 60 mph, and locally to around 70 mph in exposed parts of the west. Additionally, large waves could lead to over-topping along some coastlines. The public should be aware of these hazards.

 

This is an update to the Alert issued yesterday to include more of southwest England, Wales and northwest England whilst withdrawing it from parts of Northern Ireland and southwest Scotland where the risk is considered lower. 

 

Issued at:

1307 on Fri 31 Jan 2014

 

Valid from:

0600 on Sat 1 Feb 2014

 

Valid to:

0300 on Sun 2 Feb 2014

 

 

A deep Atlantic low will move north close to western parts of the UK on Saturday. Associated very strong winds together with bands of squally showers will affect many parts but particularly western areas.  The combination of very strong winds, large waves and high tides will lead to hazardous conditions at times in some coastal areas. Winds will ease from the south later on Saturday but remain strong in the north into early Sunday.

My friend actually took the photo - so maybe she should copy right it instead!  I missed any weather yesterday as I was doing my 1 day per week at Guy's Hospital - and it's a windowless office Posted Image

If you are travelling to London by train Reefseeker, just check the railway company's website first.  Southeastern have put a message on their site to say they are putting speed restrictions on the network at 8pm until close of service (which in other words means the trains will be cancelled and delayed all evening and they are getting their excuse in early) - due to the wind and rain later...

Further to my dream of moving somewhere warm and sunny with little or no rain I thought I'd cheer myself up on this dismal afternoon by looking at what's available, it would seem that 'Estate agent speak' applies to all languages and 'requires some work doing to it' translates to 'needs rebuilding'....

...on the positive side (apart from the blue sky of which there isn't here) it's well under budget and would be the 'business property' not the 'residential' one Posted Image

neither; its because they just cant run a train franchise :o

any excuse will do

"we are sorry for the delay to the next train; this is due to a crisp packet blowing across the lines" :lol:

Blimey! MKSA, SR and MAF all online together.... we will need to rename this thread "banter" :D

Yes, it did cross my mind that there might be some 'challenges' on the railways. And yes, Southwest Trains are showing 'major disruption' for my routes, although doesn't seem to be weather-related.... yet, oh dear:/

Afternoon all

 

After a rather bright start to the day it quickly turned dull and then duller and by midday the rain arrived, not much at first but some more frequent and heavier bursts this afternoon, wind has picked up too, glad then I have no obvious reason I can think of to step back outside until tomorrow when it should all have cleared away by (shops and library open all day so I can wait).

I wish it was as easy as that.. The weirdo in the house 3 doors down has put a line of sand bags and the water just seeped under them as he put them on the grass..Posted Image
