Today 20-7-14

Post by Ice.Maiden »

The hot weather's been good news to most people, but on the downside, this's what happens over here after a few days of heat ....

It looked like it at the weekend Yogi. It was blowing a gale, but down south, Tony said it was calm. The tail end of it's supposed to be hitting parts of the UK later on today, particularly in Wales and the northern regions. The weather forecasters've been saying to brace ourselves for storms, but we'll see. It's 1. 10 a.m. over here at the moment, and all seems relatively quiet.

You can never believe those weather forecasters. They are like fortune tellers. LOL

You're so right!

Well it turned blustery by dawn, and we had a few short showers, but the sun's out atm. Still a fair wind, but it's not too cold and generally looks OK.

Oh dear. Not so in Tony's southern regions. After the calm he was talking about .....

I don't see how hurricanes get so far north, but obviously they do.

They wing their way across the Atlantic don't they, and then sweep across our puny island.
