Well wonderful I have just seen the weather for the first time in Days only to hear that during the early Hours we will be having strong Winds at 80 mile an hour and also heavy Rain I had been told that it was expected over the weekend and I thought we had got away with it, but it seems not So I am hopefully going to sleep through it or I will be sitting here scared If it is still going on tomorrow when I wake up I know I will be sitting on the settee hoping it will go away The worse is that Gissi and me have to go out in it as Gissi has to go to the Toilet so I guess we will both not be impressed with it If you see someone flying past your Window with a little Dog do not worry it will only be me I shall wave as I pass ok

I hate to have to break this to you, my dear friend, but you'd best try and get used to it, because that weather is forecast to be here for three days, or until Tuesday, at least. Stay Cool... Brightest Blessings. xxxx

No, I wasn't joking... in fact, they now say Wednesday, but I don't think it's so bad inland. It's winds of 70 mph here which is pretty normal. It's just not nice to go out in when the rain's being blown through your clothes. xxx

Gabs, is true it rains in England a lot? I mean A LOT. I've heard that Seattle, Washington, and England have almost constant rain. Is the England part true? Or is it exaggerated?

I live in England too, and when I heard the weather reports I was pretty scared too, I hate wind. They said that it was expected to hit after midnight and so I stayed up til midnight but nothing happened so I thought I would just go to bed. I got up this morning expecting the worst and it was raining but nothing bad. I watched gmtv and saw that lots of places had been hit but we had escaped it, I was expecting it to be cold and wrapped up, but by the time I took the kids to school the sun was out and it was really warm to the point that I was sweating. So did you end up with bad weather today or did you escape it?

Not to bad the Rain has been going all Day and some Wind but not as drastic as some Places but it was very cold here though I am glad that you did not get it to bad either
@gemini_rose (16194)
11 Mar 08
Yeah some places did get it bad, its not over yet though is it, its been given out again for this afternoon, and they reckon that we wont escape it this time, and I bet it starts when I go to get the kids from school!

Gabs, You poor thing, I really hope the storm passes by without to scaring you too much. I have to say if you fly past my place I will be worried, if you manage to get this far then you are going to be in a lot of trouble. Hugs to you guys there and try not to let it bother you to much.

Ha ha, you gave me a good laugh. I look out the window tomorrow for you flying by. If I'm outside, I'll try to catch hold of you and Gissi. :o) Today was our crazy wind. And yesterday was our rainstorm. I think it's over now, but we'll see. Not bad as some in the other states or countries, have huge snowstorms. Have fun in the wind, but not too much! ;o)

What some of hare in the states would do for a good thunderstorm right now. We are getting record breaking cold tempatures. I want a good strong thunderstorm. It would mean that the spring is finally arriving.

Rain Storm - They can be very dangerous in high winds
Gabs dear, please be very careful in such storms with such high winds because it could pick you up and carry you off somewhere and you could get really hurt or something could be flying through the air and hit you. God forbid any of that happening but please do be really careful!!

The weather report has not proved to be true yet, so hopefully you may not be doing your mary Poppins inpersonation after all. I am constantly appalled at the poor rate of prediction shown in weather forecasting in this country. The modern meteorology department has millions of pounds worth of computer equipment and software to process the constant stream of data from numerous satellites circulating the planet, yet they struggle to accurately predict today's weather. I can understand the difficulty with a long range forecast such as 7 days because too many events can easily change, but surely they can do better with the present weather by looking out of the window.

Hi there Asylum I totally agree with you and I am sorry that I can not do my Mary Poppins Impression this time lol It has been windy and raining all Day but not as strong Winds as they said it would be no here anyway

Well I hope you made it through ok hon. From a couple of responses here, it looks like it wasn't as bad as the weather person predicted. I really hope it doesn't get bad for you hon. You know how much I hate storms like that, so I would be sitting right next to you on the settee. If you and Gissi do happen to blow by, I'll make sure to throw a rope out to catch both of you and bring you inside (although I'm sure Gissi will not be impressed with all the cats in the house LOL). Hugs to you.

Well some Places got it bad but lucky for me we did not we had strong Winds and a Lot of Rain and it is still going but not as bad as some places Gissi loves Cats lol as they are his Size and he likes making Friends with them Hugs xxx
10 Mar 08
You'd best batten down the hatches!! It's going to be blowing a hooley down in your neck of the woods. Here in the Highlands, we may get some rain with wind gusts to 50mph. It's just too bad that we won't get any of the snow as we are too far north. Stay safe.
