I remember this storm in 1997. We had NO warning (or maybe I just missed it), one minute all was well, the next slates were flying and huge beech trees were coming down. Living in west Waterford we bore the brunt of it and it was indeed frightening. Most of all I remember the 6 turkey's I cooked on Christmas day for friends and neighbours as I was the only one with a bottle gas cooker on the estate
If this storm is going to be anything like that one, I for one will be taking any warnings seriously.

OK, it's not getting through. Further disruption of this thread will result in posting bans.
The UK Met Office has this afternoon extended its severe weather warning for the capital and areas of the south of England for Monday and Tuesday as the first huge Atlantic storm looks set to crash in on Monday evening.
A second, much larger storm, is now forecast to affect the entire country from next Thursday, bringing with it severe gales and worsening conditions.
Current weather models predict winds well in excess of 80mph will sweep across the entire UK on Friday afternoon - winds are classified as hurricane-force from 74mph.

Although it is very interesting to centre on the arrival of these autumn storms we need to realise what it is that is driving these exceptionally strong storms. Exceptionally colder conditions in the artic circle caused by ever colder temperatures worldwide are being created by a series of large volcanic eruptions that have occurred over the past few years.

We are affected by winds every year that is what I am trying to point out, so it is nothing new to anyone who lives and works in Scotland. Everyone is going way Over the top. It will not be the end of the world you know.
