The old method of hanging up a bit of seaweed and looking out of the window works best. If its wet, its raining. If its flapping about its windy. If its dry, its sunny.

Its about as reliable as the met office anyway.


Mmmm, winter, shovelling snow off the car early in the morning, yuk! Don't mind snow, it belongs to winter, but should stay in the mountains, not down here!

We wont get much snow here Swiss sue.  Nice to look at tho.  

I think we know pretty much how the weather will be in the mornings.

I'm convinced of climate change Verdun. It's been changing for about 4 billion years (those who know can correct my numbers) so it won't stop now

I have said it already on another thread but a friend of mine who is "alternative" ( polite phrase for hippy") says it's gonna be a v v bad winter.... The acorns and sweet chestnuts are falling in huge amounts yet there are few conkers an also a lot of fruit ie apples are still on the trees apparently. She's not normally wrong I have to say.....

Climate change is here,at first I didnt believe it until I heard about our polar bears who would swim a few miles from shore to the ice packs to feed on seals.What is happening now is the bears are swinning to the ice packs but the ice packs have melted back many miles and the bears drown from exhaustion.

I confidently predict, based on my vast experience of the weather, even tho' I am only 27, periods of cold followed by warmer weather, followed by colder weather etc. etc. AND it will be wet at times and then dry at other times. When it is cloudy you won't be able to see the sun, sorry. Nights will also generally be much darker than daytime, except when it is really, really cloudy or the moon is shining.

p.s. Bill, if the polar bears are having a hard time why are their numbers increasing?


Its obvious that polar bears are getting a raw deal. The poor devils have had to start living in people's freezers now.






why is ther pics of polar bears on here not sure I inderstand

Corny, we have wandered off on a light hearted tangent I'm afraid after otnorot but just call me Bill mentioned the (serious) plight of the Polar Bears.
