School was just called off for tomorrow (Friday.) And Monday is a scheduled day off for teacher planning or some such. So it's going to have been 12 days off from school by the time this is all said and done.

Almost as much as Christmas vacation.

When did they start naming storms in the UK?
and who is responsible for naming them I wonder, well any way here I sit at home watching the trees opposite my house seriously blowing in the wind.
The wind speeds are supposed to be between 60 - 70 MPH where I am but further north near Inverness to Aberdeen the winds are nearer 90 MPH Ferries, railways seem to be shut down and driving is very dodgy, my wife had to work this morning and she txt'd a few photo's of downed trees.
So what's the name of the storm called
"Gertrude" FFS.....

The weather we get here is small beer compared to most places on the Cellar.
Apart from the fact that it rains near every day (and probably even BigV could beat me on that).

But when I went to feed the waterfowl & pigeons in the park today, I was forced to sit down. I've no idea what the official wind-speeds were, only that the River Wharfe was running high and angry, and I've sworn off suicide for 2016. If I'd had a dog or a small child with me, I'd have taken the long way round, the gusts were that unsettling.

I've got 39.8 in the sun, but I'm not sure I believe it.
