The Weather

Recommended Posts

Us Brits love a weather chat, so here’s our own one. 

‘The Beast From The East’ hasn’t defeated me this morning, it took me 3 hours, 5 minutes door-to-door this morning.

There’s a blatant reason as to why here in Britain we love to talk about the weather.

Yeah, but the sunshine means nothing and Infact the temperature feels lower because of how dry the atmosphere is.

i know. can be deceptive if you've been in for most of the day though! 

Funnily enough I've not actually felt that cold when going outside. Maybe cos there's no wind-chill factor but it's still quite chilly nevertheless. Had to do a lot of visits for work today and got covered in the snow even though I was only outside for a couple of minutes!

+32 during the day, +24 at night, light breeze, about 70-80% humidity :ph34r:

Best weather of the year at the moment, but the rainy season is slowly approaching...

Huge snowfall in my bit, it's a red warning over most of the Central Belt so the roads are deserted, can't count on the trains either. Uni's closed today and tomorrow so far.

Unfortunately a snow-day for a student basically means you just keep doing the same work, but trapped in your house instead of the libray.

Yes yes, the hard life of a student... :ph34r:

To be honest, I wouldn't want to go back to being a student and have to do assignments, submit papers, etc.xD

Unfortunately, the sad twats around my area have done the usual panic buying for those extremely difficult two days we are supposed to have tomorrow and Friday.

Mate sendt me pictures of no milk, bread, cake and biscuits, with practically no pizzas left either. 

I weep for the future here at times.

It was about 28-30 degrees and sunny in Melbourne yesterday. About 24 degrees and rainy/cloudy in Auckland but the humidity is keeping things warm.

You know you've spent ages out of the UK when 24 degrees isn't considered hot.

Even more snow overnight. Driving basically impossible and I don't think the trains are running. I think I'll leave the house tomorrow.

Pretty bad here, not like us to be one of the worst affected parts of the country. About 20cm of snow, roads are awful. Fuck all people going to work because a lot of Norfolk is very rural and roads are awful. Even the city roads are pretty bad.

Talking to my daughter this morning about it when she said Hurricane Emma has hit... I said I couldn't wait until Hurricane Rodney comes.. she said they only name them after women.... 

All the blokes at the Met Office must be naming them after their wives or something..

So the London Councils were pre-warned two weeks in advance as to The Beast From The East that was on its way to freeze us all and cause mass disruption.

The question is; Where is the grit, the salt and the pre-care for roads and streets?  What's the excuse for what we have and this third world preparation with full warnings?

Is two weeks enough? We're a country that gets one decent snowfall as a whole once a millennium, I imagine it's too expensive to get equipment in needed to deal with it for a one off.

Noticed that here as well... They were gritting on Monday but not seen anything Tuesday and Wednesday...

They have the equipment mate... Someone took a picture of the Grit Trucks at Islington Council parked and covered in snow because they weren't taken out. Seems we don't have the money to use the resources we have!  The same is being said of countless councils throughout London.

Knowing the way councils are raising our council tax but cutting back on services they probably have 2 gritting lorries per county and they are sending out the unemployed on the backs of open lorries chucking salt out with a spade...

It's the worst snow we've had around here probably in my lifetime. You can't expect to be prepared. There is no point wasting money on 100s of snow ploughs and gritters if we use them once in 20 years. When that once in 20 year snow comes round we just have to deal with a few days of chaos. It'll be gone in a few days.

It's my birthday tomorrow. It's not often it snows around this time of year but I can remember one birthday when I was about 10, it snowed heavily as fuck and I can remember it being a brilliant birthday party for a kid.

Remember that it is just snow, hardly a nuke from North Korea.

It doesn't matter on the weather, it will always be over-dramatised in this country by the media.

It's set for a sunny week and it'll be a "killer heatwave set to shake the UK and kill millions", if it's a bit of rainfall then it's "the worst downpour for 500 years and we are all going to be 18 feet under water all winter and die".

Try living in a country where the weather really is extreme and where they have to put up with earthquakes and cyclones, etc. Fucking idiots. It's a bit of snow, get your sledges out.

Its been continuous but very dry light powdery stuff since Wednesday here which hasn’t settled apart from where it’s blow into drifts which had been manageable. But from 2pm onwards it’s settled now we’re at about 4-5” I got home about 5 and that was starting to take the piss to drive. I gather it’s taken most folk a few hours to do 2-3 miles
