You southerners are great, a drop of rain here, or a flake of snow there and it's Armageddon! Airports shut, schools, businesses, everything grinds to a halt.

Get that up here (as seen in one of my pictures) and people don swimming trunks.

Heavy rain? You mean a light shower right?

Lol.




Apart from my boss who'd expect us all in for work on time the day after armageddon.

Cockermouth, eh? You folks sure do have colorful place names.


Oh you think so? There is a small town up on the Orkney Islands north of Scotland called Twat. I have a mate from there and he is a real Twat! In fact, every one of them in that town is a Twat!

It's Twatt (2 x t), I've been there, for obvious reasons, lol, sorry to nitpick.

As for Cockermouth (for the previous poster who you quoted), it's a town at the mouth of the river Cocker :p

Well, I'm from Kent, and while the summers are mostly great, you can get very low temperatures in the winter, I don't see much change there. Here in Northern Ireland where I now live, the weather has reverted somewhat to what it was when I first came here, mild, and often wind stormy in the early winter from the Westerlies, (as it is right now) but also some very cold spells of heavy snow through January and February. However the proper Westerlies from across the Atlantic have not come back as yet, so any mildness is really winds coming from the South, stalling the cold coming down from the North on the Western side of Ireland. I don't see much talk about the Gulfstream/North Atlantic Drift anymore, but at least we had a lot more sun this year, after near tens years of grey skies throughout, including the famous layers of Undulatus Asperatus. Anyway, it's overall a change for the better, even if I do get hit by a falling tree!

It's difficult to organise that up here, not enough pumps and too many rivers.

Lakes, meres, tarns and waters, and lots of them, all draining out to the Irish sea and the Solway.

I assume by your "Down t" you're Yorkshire way or above, so I imagine you are getting your fair share.

Bits and bobs, but I'm South on the East coast, and I think the belt came from much lower down and hit Cumbria at a diagonal, so we missed much of it. Still, the good thing is most of the deciduous stuff is now baldy, and that wind blew most of the leaves OUT of the garden for a change...saved me a fourth day of Hoovering with the lawnmower.

Nice looking ridge.
Anyone fly it?

I think my Bro might have, he went to the Lake District a deal of the time, and hang gliding was always on the menu.
Having said that, he went everywhere to er um, fly...even to South America..you guys are nuts.

If I were nuts I wouldn't be into my 42nd year of doing it.
The guys who are nuts, don't usually last very long. You know...that "old bold" thing.


But tell me more about your hovering lawnmower.
