Weather Watching

Along with my computer crammed in a cubby hole under the stairs is my weather notice board. If you click on picture to enlarge you can see there is a picture which says "Cold" !!! Below it there is a meteogram which I download every morning - this is generated using our latitude and longnitude points - it is usually quite accurate. To the left the maps are of Europe showing the weather fronts and pressure for the next couple of days - this comes from a Dutch website - they "straighten up" the UK on the map, rather than the usual tilted appearance on a normal map of Europe. Far right are two weather predictions for the week from two amateurs I like to follow.

If I hadn't given Other Half a digital weather station for Christmas one year, I'm sure we'd have a notice board like that by now! He has a love/hate relationship with weather.

He likes it warm, calm and stable - he claims San Francisco has the ideal climate - but is endlessly fascinated by the vagaries of the world's climate.

I heard on the radio yesterday that London was having snow! The first time (this early) since 1922 or so.

So much for global warming !?!?!
