Ive lived here since 98 southeast of the Denver metro area, I should have been more specific in saying that Aurora and the surrounding metro area hasn't seen winds that strong in a considerable period of time. The mountains and front range of course are a different story.


My mother in law is down in Brighton and I have noticed that the weather can sometimes be much calmer where she is, but I remember back when I was in high school it seemed that all of Denver would get pounded in the winter time while we didn't get nearly as much. But going back even further I remember when I was in elementary how bad winters would get along the front range with the wind and snow. I was talking to a neighbor a couple of years ago who spent half an hour telling me how unusual and extreme it was to have it snow, not melt, then snow more and not melt.. and build up like that. I had to force myself to not tilt my head to the side like a confused dog!
When I was in elementary it was totally normal to get huge storms after huge storms and pile up high until May when it finally melted off. Turns out my neighbor had only lived in Colorado for a couple of years. It seems very cyclical, some years the wind is really really bad and others nothing at all. So it can seem unusual when we go for a few years with things being mild and then go back to the normal harsh cold winter windy Colorado weather.

The first Weather Warnings were issued on New Years Eve for the upcoming winds and rain. I think the problem is though that people do not pay attention to them until the weather actually arrives, at which point you get the latest weather warnings on whatever forecast you might be watching.

UK wants to leave the EU. So the NWO/Illuminati is trying to send them a message by warming up HAARP. So get back in line or else. That's my theory at least.

Same here in Norway. I thought my windows were going to brake at some point at night!

But, you are right. As far as the rest of the world goes, the UK is benign. We have no deadly animals, we have rather boring weather comparatively and the geology is stable compared to a lot of places. I think that is why when we get a good storm or a freak tornado, we go overboard with the "OMG! What is going on?" nonsense. Because we are so benign most of the time, when something "extreme" does happen we instantly forget that this is neither unique or a real cause of worry.

Agreed in part. But the thing to remember is that 2011 was a record breaker in terms of weather events all over the world - in some cases 'since records began'. That's different to normal fluctuation. And it IS a cause for concern imo. Google it. Here are just a few links.

Whenever we have tropical storms or hurricanes, we have a game we play...I know it sounds crazy, but it's fun. We get 4 people and a sheet, and each person grabs a corner....when the wind catches it, if it'sstrong enough, it will act as a parachute! As long as it is not a really bad storm, it's fun! I know....I'm insane!


Out in the Calif desert in the US I once got rid of a junk car in a neighbor's yard by hooking a old cargo parachute to it one night when the wind was blowing about 80 mph.

The last we saw of the car was it rolling across the desert and the next day we could not find it.
There was a strange hole in the military base fence a couple miles away.???

As you bring it up, the UK does, very occasionally, have some quite severe Earthquakes and apparently we are "overdue" (seems to be the case with most natural disasters....)..

We do sit on a quite fractured part of the world and there are plenty of fault lines, just not of the magnitude you see at plate boundaries.

But, you are right. As far as the rest of the world goes, the UK is benign. We have no deadly animals, we have rather boring weather comparatively and the geology is stable compared to a lot of places. I think that is why when we get a good storm or a freak tornado, we go overboard with the "OMG! What is going on?" nonsense. Because we are so benign most of the time, when something "extreme" does happen we instantly forget that this is neither unique or a real cause of worry.


Speaking of Earthquakes I remember the 5.7 the other year that sent everyone mad. I thought the chair I was sat on was being attacked by a ghost or some such thing
I remember being overjoyed to the point of waking up my brother, and I'm sure it was about 2 in the morning

Has the windstorm died down yet?
We had the same thing a few weeks ago in S. Calif. 97mph was the peak measurement as I recall.
It's a pain but I know what you are going through.

Has anyone considered HAARP aka weather control site in Alaska? It's worth checking out. Jesse Ventura made a TV episode from his show "Conspiracy Theory" dedicated to this topic.

I'm in Belgium and we can feel the edge of that storm you have there in the UK, worst so far was yesterday but they are expecting another storm in a couple of hours (night time).
Winds right now are coming from the south-west and It's pretty scary already, I can't imagine what you guys have over there!

Hope everyone stays safe!
