    Default Met Office Warnng

    According to the Nottingham Post online, the Met Office have stated that the beast from the East is returning to the UK in January / February next January and continuing into February.
    Get your thermals ready (Lol).
    Amazing they can predict monthsn in advance but can't get the following days weather correct.

    Well Vic
    Although i dont want you all there to have bad Weather ,over here it is still very cold with nasty Winds making it even worse ,and i am hopeing that soon we will start to get some warmer stuff on the way,as although i do like the cool this Winter has been terrible here!
    Today again Wind is blowing quite strong,the Temp at this time is at 1 degree but feels more like Minus 6 with wind chill factor!
    So as you Winter approaches,i do hope that it wont be too bad.
    Just keep safe and stay Warm.
    Cheers

    There we were last week basking in an early bit of Spring with 19 degrees.
    Moved to some lighter shorts thinking this will be the turn in the weather.
    Well it was, today back to winter with a vengeance at only 10 degrees and blowing a gale with rain from the East, comes down almost horizontal.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Yes Vernon the fires are bad and so early in the season.
    But the drought has had a lot to do with it, until that breaks, which it will, the same will continue.

    Hope it is not as bad as the on ewe had down here in the 90's, lasted almost ten years, but we survived.

    Funny how so many blame Climate Change when the fact is this sort of weather pattern has been going on long before the white man came here.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Climate change is the catch-all term for the shift in worldwide weather phenomena, the big clue is in worldwide not just where I live !

    Definition of Climate Change

    Nasa defines climate change as: "a broad range of global phenomena created predominantly by burning fossil fuels, which add heat-trapping gases to Earth’s atmosphere. These phenomena include the increased temperature trends described by global warming, but also encompass changes such as sea level rise; ice mass loss in Greenland, Antarctica, the Arctic and mountain glaciers worldwide; shifts in flower/plant blooming; and extreme weather events."

    The storm that hit the Bahamas was the biggest in 56 years and like that one has carried right on up to Newfoundland, 56 years ago was when I was on the old rust bucket Basford when we hit that storm biggest ever seen at that time, I was swept over the side, Albeit hanging onto the midships door handle that saved me going all the way, My son and daughter are only here today by good luck and a strong right hand.

    Yesterday it was -9 winds 90 kilometers an hour, so strong I had to hold on to anything that was solid as I collected all the garden furniture up from around the block, even the pegs on the line were blown off and scattered into the hedge , God help those firemen up the country when it hits them up there.
    When I was on the coast here, crossing the Australian bight we used to experience tremendous gales coming up from the roaring forties which included very very heavy rain, these days the winds are as strong; but the rain is no longer there. Sydney's water supply is running out, having worked for the water board there on Waragamba Dam I can tell you if we have no rain in the next two months Sydney is going to experience what the people in the country areas have for the last five years, no water The Ministers reply to a question about what they are doing about it! 'Nothing at the moment." Sounds a bit like Brexit.
