it’s the day after christmas and all thru the house

Not exactly what folks need here.  Been reading about the unfortunates who are without a home today and people without power. It’s cold, well doh, it is December.  There was some power outage in this area but nothing that touched us in this location.  So very thankful so far.  Winds are a worry of course.  So far today, bright and sunny, not a cloud in the sky. On the cold side but not uncomfortable.

I hope nobody comes along and blames it all on Bush.

Batten down the hatches for MORE Christmas misery: Britain to be battered again tonight as thousands remain without power

Gusts of up to 90mph set to strike, with northern England and northern parts of Wales worst hit
Environmental Agency issues 80 flood warnings - many in Kent and Sussex
UK Power Networks: East of England almost back to normal apart from a few isolated pockets of customers still facing power cuts

Britain is bracing itself for more stormy weather, with forecasters warning of 90mph winds and blustery showers.

Wind and rain may cause travel disruption tomorrow which could leave commuters struggling to get back to work after the Christmas break.

The Met Office has issued yellow and amber weather warnings, indicating ‘severe or hazardous weather’ with potential to ‘cause danger to life or widespread disruption’.

The worst-affected areas are expected to be northern England and northern parts of Wales.

John Griffiths, a forecaster for MeteoGroup UK, said: ‘There will be some very, very strong winds and blustery showers in places tomorrow.

‘The winds will start to pick up this afternoon and evening. Tomorrow around 6am, there will be some strong gusts of wind going up to 90mph.’

The severe weather forecast has also prompted new warnings for homeowners to prepare for more festive flooding as rain washes over saturated ground and into swollen rivers.

Kent and Sussex are expected to be among the worst hit.

Thousands of people have been forced to flee their homes or spend Christmas without any power after storms battered the south earlier this week.

UK Power Networks said that the East of England is now virtually back to normal apart from a few isolated pockets of customers.

The company this morning said customers in the following regions were still without power: Kent, 4,869; Surrey 1,672; and Sussex, 1,639

Engineers are still desperately trying to reconnect the homes, which may be left without electricity until the weekend.

We are in the South .... should miss the 90mph mentioned, but after the past week, I worry about any wind with those trees left standing in the back.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. 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.
