Maybe a few inches of snow that grind the country to a halt.


LOL


Isn't it sad that a once 'Great' country cant handle half an inch of snow!

The weather forecast "Expect snow"
Highways "IF it snows we'll throw out some salt"
Highways "The roads are too slippery for the salting lorries"
Highways "Dont go out, the roads are treacherous"
Highways "This year the heavy snow caused chaos on our roads"

Here is the post I made on the other thread about the severe weather headed your way, there can never be too much coverage on something of this magnitude, stay safe:

I am here with you and yours, will continue to check back periodically. One thing to watch for is a greenish or yellow tinge to the atmosphere around sunset, well even during the day for that matter. It is usually an odd color before a major tornadic or hurricane force wind driven event.

This IS a hurricane force event about to come down on you, so take all the precautions possible from flying debris and above all else stay safe and use your highest intuition and listen to your gut.

Be sure and draw up enough water for a few days. This includes pets. You may or may not lose power but sometimes the power companies shut it down until the all clear rather than risk having downed power lines or dangerous electrical situations even fire.

Take care of your elderly or disabled neighbors and help them to prepare and to be calm and secure in that you will check back on them after the storm passes, and it will pass.

EDIT to say, be sure and use the ATS Chat forum during this emergency, it has PROVEN in the past to be a life saver for those who can keep you informed and even calm during an emergency.

Thanks Antar, one question...

Is there a work around if the broadband wifi goes down?

Serious question, becasue if the power goes out, there is no internet, unless any of you know differently?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

True...but doesn't the mobile network rely upon electricity to work? E.g mobile phone masts etc...

This storm is not expected to be as bad as the Oct '87 one - though inland gusts over 60mph look likely, and higher on coasts. Given trees are still in full leaf, and we've not had any serious gales across southern England for a while, there's likely to be some disruption from trees coming down. Worryingly, the worst of the weather looks like being around the Monday morning rush hour.

However ...... there is still a fair be of variation in model predictions and simple put we don't know yet how bad it'll be or where the worst winds will be. Also, it's uncertain as to whether there will be a sting jet (as occured in 87 - and the reason that storm was worse than forecast). Come Sunday night, we'll know more!

btw similar or worse storms hit Scotland every year

Where by are you Void? im right in its path here on the S Wales coast. My youngest daughter is not normal, she is outrageously excited by the prospect of this storm, i have been given a list of tinned foods by her, that i must purchase from Iidls tomorrow, should the storm cause power cuts etc, future prepper it seems.
I have been relaying stories to her about the 1987 storm, id just started my first job, and I got caught in a wind tunnel during my lunchbreak, during the storm. It was bloody scary, you had to be there.

The forecasts for mid Sussex are still only giving a highest wind speed of 34 MPH for early Monday morning.Although not exactly a light breeze,not exactly armageddon either.

Do you mean the centre line or edges?

I understood it was more centered on the channel, although the areas covered have moved north somewhat from the first warnings on Friday. Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Sussex and Kent, to include S Wales and the Midlands.

I was on the south coast during that last storm and slept through most of it, although those higher up the block of flats reportedly said it swayed and furniture moved!

Oh well, winter drawers on, here in the valleys we either get it bad or miss it altogether . hehe. Stay safe down there on the coast.

44kts? That will be those gorgeous cheese and onion rolls they serve in the pubs then.

Better double up the anchor lines or you will become part of France, closely followed by Guernsey. Hehe.

Take care down there.

From what I can work out it appears that the Bristol Channel/ Wales and south west will get the severe rain fall while the winds will centre in the channel

The center of the depression currently looks most likely to track from Pembrokeshire to Humberside - though that may of course change. The strongest winds will be to the south and west of the center.

However winds over land will be less strong than those over sea, so coastal parts will see the strongest gusts.

That's true, that would only happen if all the grid was knocked out I suppose.

Hi thedoctorswife
I'm right on the south coast, just a few miles from Hastings. If it gets over the sea wall I'll be swimming

Your daughter is perfectly normal, storms are fantastic and it's nice she's excited by it. I hope you'll be pitching the tent and helping her build a fire to cook her supplies?

When I was young I loved being outside when the wind was howling and the rain and lightning were going crazy.
I really hope this thing doesn't fizzle out because I'll be disappointed

I can't believe people get excited by these kinds of things..

Guess it's different when like me, I'll be driving a high sided vehicle right on the coast just at the exact time they expect the storm to hit.. hope I survive it, it's a real life and death situation.

Frankly I'm terrified... go to work and risk my life or stay at home and lose my job? Great *sigh*
