Author Topic: A random thread for weatherish things that don't warrant a thread of their own.  (Read 58772 times)

We have Wowbagger's "I've got a weather station" thread, and we've got the "It's snowing!" thread - but I was astonished to discover we don't have a weather-related thread in the "Random" series; amazing given the preoccupation us Brits have with meteorological events.

South Lopham, up the road from me, has recorded 32mm of rain so far today. Nothing too exceptional, but certainly a wet and dreary day that had the folks in Tesco earlier, muttering and moaning about the general state of things.

I had earlier driven through a minor flood where a roadside brook had over-topped and merged with the road, and was reminded of a DIY fboab and I undertook during our tandem points chase; when 15cm of snow had melted overnight at the end of a cold snap - leading to some interesting road conditions.
I spared a thought then, for the folks of Buffalo New York who, following recent events where close to 2 METRES of snow fell in a couple of days - now face a thaw of fairly staggering magnitude. The forecast for them tomorrow is for +16c temperatures and about the same amount of rain we had today. It's gonna get messy...

Fucking freezing here in N Yorks. Has been since dark last night.
I feel like Captain Kirk, on a brand new planet every day, a little like King Kong on top of the Empire State

Forecasting! My arse. They might have a shiny new computer but they must have sold the weather vane to be able to afford it.

It is not warm, it is windy and it is doing its level best to rain.  Who was that lunatic at the bus stop, wearing shorts?

We know a song about that1, don't we Billy?  Fortunately I was waiting at the traffic lights in my motorcar, having taken a metric fuckton of assorted packaging Stuffs to the tip.  I hate polystyrene.

Today is ridiculously warm.

Lovely, isn't it?

+15c on my outside thermometer this afternoon. Tad breezy though. There's a good 50mm of Daffs poking through in the communal garden bit of scrub ground, at the back of the flats.

It's a bit too warm, really. I should have been back in spring clothes, I was way too hot with a coat on.
