Whether the weather — 11 Comments

  1. I was writing an email at work this morning and couldn't remember if weather was the correct spelling for my context. It seems it wasn't. I wish you had written this post a little earlier.

    • Heh!  Sorry.  I know people come here for various nefarious reasons, but I never thought it could be used as a dictionary.  I had better go back and check all my spellings again?

    • Nice one, Frank!  It even indicates the Beaufort Scale.  Bookmarked with my other two.

  2. Yes, a couple of good links there, GD. Although the first one asked me if I would like to share my location with them, and when I clicked 'yes', took me to the middle of the Aegean, which is the other side of Greece to the Ionian, where I actually am. Still, I'm sure they'll work it out eventually. The wind site is quite trippy, don't you think? A couple of good spliffs, and I could sit and gaze at it for hours…

    • That "share location" thing I presume is for mobile users?  I never let 'em in anyway.

      If you really want a great trip, wait until winter when the storms and hurricanes roll across the Atlantic.  Light up that fat doobie and enjoy the ride!

  3. Adore maps, pore over them. Going to be doing that with naval charts too soon enough.

    • My expertise with naval charts is unsurpassed.  You need a Navigator?  A First Officer?  A Bos'n? Cabin Boy?

  4. I've always been some sort of half-arsed meteorologist or so I fancy.  These days I've been less enthusiastic about it but I still have several weather type websites bookmarked (local weather, precipitation, animated  weather both past and future, jet stream, etc) And now I have one for current wind conditions (your second link), thank you very much.

    And I guess I'm post-elderly as well. Perhaps we can submit this as a new term?

  5. Hey up Grandad, love the links mate, I don't have a tv, so my weather has to come from iplayer, which yesterday said "a couple of small showers in the morning, fine dry and sunny for the rest of the day." which when working in a wood is just how I like it. So, off I went,tools in the truck, and it pissed down all day!! So those weather links will sort me good style and iplayer can go the same way as the rest of em.

    cheers bud
