Re: La Niña effect is snow joke

I was wondering when they'd publish their "predictions for a horrific endless world-destroying winter" that never happens...Funny

Nah, you need to read the Express on line to get truly accurate weather catastrophe forecasts.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: La Niña effect is snow joke

It's hilarious the way people react to snow though, while I was in college on Thursday when it started snowing, everyone started panicking about it, and proclaiming they were going to be stuck and we were going to be snowed in and couldn't get home, etc. etc., meanwhile I was sat there thinking "Oooh! Snow!!"... Funny

 

The bus ride home was a bit hairy though, power-sliding out of the bus station on a bus that thinks it's a vw beetle (the exhaust sound, it chirps like a beetle) is not fun!!! Crazy2

Round where I live it is not funny if you are working in Central London. You'd think "Oooh! Snow!!", with a taste of "Oh how the [-Censored-] am I going to get home". So I can understand what they mean.

No underground where I leave and my trains are so bad even the slightest thing will affect them.

Driving is not really an option in London as besides from paying the Congestion Tax, finding somewhere to park and having to have been a recent lottery winner to afford the charges.

I am going to have to travel in the next week or so, which will be by public transport so wish me luck. It is about 15 miles from Central London to mine, walking is out of the window and I don't think my physical fitness would be up to it, even in good weather Smiley

Re: La Niña effect is snow joke

Well they have to print something.

Might be an idea for one paper to print,'This will be the warmest winter for years'

 Now if the got lucky and got that right they could live on that headline for weeks

Re: La Niña effect is snow joke

Reminds me of the time of Michael Fish during the 1987 hurricane.

Said "Someone has rung in saying there was a hurricane, but don't worry all is fine" (not an exact quote something along those lines). Laughed it off as joke,

She ended up being right, he was wrong. Talk about egg on your face.

Poor guy I don't suppose has ever lived it down. He was even shown on the London 2012 opening ceremony.

@Alex

Not sure why some of these London firms don't convert a couple of offices into sleeping quarters with a load of bunk beds in so staff could sleep there if the weather was bad.

Everybody wins, cost of travel is saved for staff and nobody late for work !

 

 

.....Just kidding !

Re: La Niña effect is snow joke

I'm sure some companies would like to do that.

Mind you without a shower and change of clothes, there might be a not too pleasant aroma around the office in a few days. Tongue

Re: La Niña effect is snow joke

Now that even 'common' people go on skiing holidays, how about companies keeping a few pairs of skis and ski boots available for such emergencies?

Re: La Niña effect is snow joke

Looks like drifting snow to me @Strat as the snow on the garages / sheds behind only have a 4-5 inches on them.
