    Quick question: what's the point of making these new threads once one gets a bit long in the teeth?

     

    If it's to make searching through a thread easier, surely having tens of threads counteracts that?

     

    Baffled

    It's not......the board of directors are in the process of re writing the rule book and it looks at this stage as if a winner could be decided on how much salt the local authorities have left in their depot....I've checked with MK council and I understand stocks are at the max of 3,000 tonnes here so unless anyone can beat me on that I've won Posted Image

    There is no need to be baffled or sarcastic - all the regional threads are run for approximately 40 pages, if they get too much longer than that it takes ages for the pages to load especially for members who are accessing the site from a mobile device...we always link to the previous thread to make it easy for people to catch up so I really don't see what your problem is !

    Been a lovely day today, thought it was meant to be windy?

     

    It's been lovely here too, tonight into tomorrow is when this region will see some patchy light rain and gusty wind ...

    3 million tonnes left in londonPosted Image

     

    It's the amount left for your borough or local council.....not the whole of London Posted Image 

     

    Anyway the grit will be obsolete soon as studies in the US have found that Beet juice, cheese brine and garlic salt all prove to be as effective as road salt at temperatures well below zero and without the environmental impacts or cost of rock salt ....

    in that case, due to government cuts, my borough couldn't afford any this year, so they have the 2 grammes left over from lasy year.

    Wasn't there an earth quake this week in the bristol channel?Posted Image

     

    The Bristol Channel floods, which occurred on 30 January 1607, resulted in the drowning of a large number of people and the destruction of a large amount of farmland and livestock. Recent research has suggested that the cause may have been a tsunami.

    The cause of the flood remains disputed, insofar as contemporary explanations blamed God. Subsequent scientific explanations ignored much of the written evidence and blamed bad weather, until recent research suggested a tsunami. Traditionally it had been believed that the floods were caused by a storm surge, a combination of meteorological extremes and a high tide.

    Written evidence from the time describes events that were similar to those that unfolded in the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, including the sea receding before the wave arrived, a wave of water that rushed in faster than men could run, sparks coming off the top of the wave, and a crowd of people who stood and watched the wave coming towards them until it was too late to run.

    Hi Ali,

     

    Just a quick thanks for reacting quickly to my post, earlier this afternoon. I really felt that the 2 posts I quoted were unacceptable and as this is a family orientated forum, we should be guarding against the use of this sort of language and smutty innuendo.

    If some members feel I've overreacted, I'm sorry and I certainly didnt intend to cause an "atmosphere", on the thread, at all.

    But in light of certain problems there have been recently on the Regional Thread and on the forum in general, standards and behaviour need to be maintained, for the good of everyone, poster and viewer alike.

     

    Ali, think you have a thankless task trying to keep order on this thread but you always manage do so with a smile and some considerable understanding too.

     

    Regards,

    Tom.

    hi all

     

    hope your well and had a good day

     

    tonight

     

    chilly and dry

    Posted Image

     

    a frost is unlikely due to the breezy south west wind

     

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    tomorrow

     

    Posted Image

     

    a gusty south west wind

     

    maybe 40 mph locally and possible slightly higher costal regions

     

    rainfall

     

    Posted Image

    the call is mainly dry

     

    however there is a chance that some showers could be driven in on the strong wind

     

    more especially the west of the region

     

    temps

     

    Posted Image

    12-13 degrees

     

    but feeling a slight chill where exposed to the wind

     

    will update the rest soon

     

    having my dinner now

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    monday

     

    Posted Image

    a breezy south west wind

     

    may get a shade gusty to the north east of the region for a time

     

    however only gusty not too strong

     

    rain

     

    Posted Image

    still looks mainly dry as that cold front is really slow at getting here

     

    however during the afternoon expect some showers

     

    although i do not expect anything heavy and the far east of the region may not see any daytime rain at all

     

    temps

     

    Posted Image

    still around 10 degrees and maybe a 12 locally

     

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    monday night

     

    Posted Image

    during late pm the winds will increase on a south westerly still

     

    gusting again 40 maybe 50 mph

     

    rainfall

     

    Posted Image

    dull drizzly weather (druzzly)

     

    followed by heavier rain moving in before rush hour

     

    could get heavy for a time but moreso the south of the river thames

     

    temps

     

    Posted Image

    around 6-7 degrees and will feel cold if out in the showers

     

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    tuesday

     

    Posted Image

    winds still gusty on a south westerly

     

    may switch to a colder westerly later in the day

     

    rainfall

     

    Posted Image

    the heavier rain easing early pm

     

    followed by gusty showers later on

     

    temps

     

    Posted Image

    Posted Image

    as the main rain passes temps will drop off quite quickly as we head towards mid pm

     

    when some of the seperate showers move through later

     

    there is a chance of the odd rumble or 2 with them

     

    maybe heavy localised showers too

     

    temps around 6-8 degrees

     

    dropping off late pm especially when showers hit

     

     

    back later with the updates

    Posted Image

     

    if it goes negative it does this

    Posted Image

     

     

    Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

    Posted Image

    now ecm

     

    Posted Image

    there are subtle differences but close enough to follow on

     

    now heres the rest of ecm

     

    Posted Image

    possible showers of?

     

    Posted Image

    colder and mainly dry

     

    Posted Image

    mainly dry

     

    dont be misled this is still chilly and frost overnight would be likely

     

    finally

     

    Posted Image

    Posted Image

    warmer but cloudy at day

     

    cold and possibly chilly but not frosty at night

     

    solar output

     

    http://www.solarham.net/regions/map.htm

     

    http://www.solarham.net/

     

    although there are spots there solar activity looks to be dropping off now

     

    http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/alerts/warnings_timeline.html

     

    link above shows how activity has been high but slowly dropping off

     

     

    lets hope we see something like the above happening and we keep the atlantic away from us

    • August thunderstorms bring the risk of flooding and disruption

      Any rain should be welcome looking at the parched ground but intense downpours aren't enough. Thunderstorms bring the risk of flash flooding as the rain hits the hard, dry ground. Read the full update here
