Batten down the ratchets, all hands man the poop deck. (wherever that is) Man overboard.

Woo-Hoo ,, we are in for it.  Already been raining for a couple days and nights.  Went to hardware store but nobody has any blueprints on ark building.
Doesn’t matter because I’m not much on tools anyway.


Britain prepares to be battered by weekend of storms, 70mph gales and pouring rain

The weekend will be washed out by the worst storm of the year so far, with gale-force gusts and heavy rain on its way, forecasters warned today.

Weather experts are advising those planning Saturday shopping trips and days out to postpone them and stay indoors as Britain is buffeted by winds of up to 70mph.

The winds will be strong enough to cause damage, including bringing down trees and branches, say forecasters.


This is in our neck of the woods:

Stephen Davenport, of Meteogroup UK, said that while it will dry up overnight, the rain will begin again in the early hours.

‘It is pretty filthy weather already and it is only going to get worse tomorrow. The real meat of the storm is coming overnight.

‘There will be a gradual build-up, with the peak of the winds being felt in the south west in the early hours before the storm shifts north-eastwards.’

‘This is the strongest storm we have had this year but it is just an autumnal storm, not untypical for this time of year.’

The storm is developing off the west coast of the country and is being fed by the still-warm autumn sea temperatures, he said.

Met Office chief forecaster, Bob Wilderspin, said: ‘We are expecting severe weather over the next few days.’

He added that forecasters will be monitoring the situation and updating weather reports so people are advised to keep an eye on forecasts for more information.

It’s the wind I think I worry about most.  Especially with some very,very large trees in the back. Come to think about, there’s a few in the front over the electric lines.  The two new houses on either side of us have underground lines.  We’re not so lucky, having been built in the 1920s.

The rain sometimes sounds like thunder.  I don’t think that’s the correct word.  It’s very noisy and makes a kind of drumming sound.  I wouldn’t mind if it were Gene Krupa.

If what I’m hearing now ain’t the “real meat” of this thing, I don’t think I wanna hear it later tonight.

Cheers ....

We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
