Might have been a bit hairy yesterday or today!Got happy memories of kayaking round the IOW, could easily do it in a day if you didn't mess the tides up
To be fair, Barrow was well fucked before Ciara hit it!Well, seeing as how large parts of the roofing for several houses down the row have gone airborne.... Storm Ciara is renamed "Storm Barrow ******".
Hopefully, I shall awake in the morning to find 90% of the town (basically everywhere that isn't the Costa del Walney) washed away and the locals desperately applying their webbed feet mutations in a vain effort to survive
Thundersnow - quite unusual. You should do the lottery.In West Lothian we had heavy rain and strong winds since early afternoon on Saturday, with many roads covered in deep ponds. That petered out on Sunday evening. Today has been heavy snowfall on and off all day that has settled to about 2-3 inches even on the very wet ground. In the midst of one of the heavy snowfalls this afternoon we also had thunder and lightning.
Funnily enough the last time I went to Manchester around this time last year I experienced thunder snow whilst loading the van with a load of metal staging. Never heard of it before. It's pretty dangerous in comparison to normal thunder and lightning. If you can hear the clap of thunder you are within 3 miles of a strike. Carrying 8 foot by 2 foot metal framing might not be the best idea and I had a moment of quiet reflection on that when I found out the dangers.Thundersnow - quite unusual. You should do the lottery.
