Better nail everything down!

Anyone live on the North-West coast? Make sure the bins are safely tucked away..

Wind forecast for 9pm on Sunday 3rd March...

Edit: The 6pm forecast doesn't look too good for most coasts..

Re: Better nail everything down!

Weather warning here in west Wales as well for Sunday going into Monday so let's hold onto our hats or better still, throw another log on the fire and put those feet up.

@nozzer 

When you said better to nail everything down I thought you were going to post something about stopping people from nicking stuff.

Thanks @shutter 

Wow, what a great site. Much better Atlantic pressure chart than any I've seen, and with so many other features too. Thumbs Up

To err is human, but to really foul things up requires a computer.

Re: Better nail everything down!

Yeah... it`s really good... and you can watch the weather patterns ,, ( whichever weather you choose ) change and progress as you move the bar on the days of the week at the bottom..

If you find your own location, and "left click & hold "  for a couple of seconds, you will get a "flag"  with the current ( or predicted  )  weather format you are using..  e.g. Temp.... wind speed & direction.... snow... etc.

 

Combine that site with this site....    http://www.radareu.cz/    and you will surely know what is coming ! ! ..

Re: Better nail everything down!

Bungee cords work wonders on bins and bin lids.

IF you have wheelie bins, reusable cable ties work wonders too. Just strap one bin handle to the other and the heaviest bin will always keep the lightest bin in place.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Better nail everything down!

And all because a binman (sorry, waste collecter) cannot now pick up a dustbin or one of those black plastic bags. 

Whatever happened to "My Old Mans a Dustman

....He wears a dustman's hat

He wears cor-blimey trousers

..... And he lives with a really bad back"

Re: Better nail everything down!

What a difference a week makes. Summer-like temperatures last week but today we are waiting for a battering from Storm Freya.

Looks like a stormy afternoon and evening can be expected.

Re: Better nail everything down!

Storm ?

What Storm ?

Now't but a gentle breeze and not that much rain up here in Lancashire.

Now when I was a lad I remember some storms and now't on the news or on the radio about them apart from the weather fishing forecast
