  • I have been observing the climate related KPI's in our garden. The eucalyptus tree is bending over at a 57 degree angle pointing towards Holt road. This is invariably a sign that it's windy. Our washing is fluttering like the sails on a tea clipper, this indicates that it has not blown away. And the crucial sign is that our 'winnie the witch' scarecrow is facing due east, this definitely means that the storm will NOT cause the devastation that the scaremongers predict. It means that the evacuees will have a nice cup of tea(with perhaps a little something in it, innit?) at various put-me-up hostelries. It's going to be a bit windy and wet-it's not Armageddon. (just armageddin outa here)

  • "....I have been observing the climate ...". No , you have been observing the weather. Weather and climate are different things John.

  • Dear Backwardman, I assume that you are familiar with the expression "It's better to be safe than sorry", but you seem the sort that would be on here criticising the authorities if they had done nothing, and 300 people had died as they did in 1953. Some people are never satisfied.
