Bubbling Up

Post by Dutto on Sun Jul 08, 2012 10:25 pm

Hi there,

I hate it when a "money for old rope" weather forecaster tells me that something is "Bubbling Up"!
rainyday
It is yet another meaningless term used to obscure the fact that they don't actually know what is going to happen.

Now you know to look out for it you will find it happens almost daily!

I loved those clouds! allthumbz

They started off over Lincolnshire and slowly drifted down to Kent! Just wish the weather had done likewise! tap_fingers

We slept through it all that night (well we could then).

I remember next day helping my neighbour reclaim his garden furniture.

We lost 2 roof tiles, he lost half his roof. hugegrins

Happy days!

Perhaps thats why we slept through it. snigger

O/H corrected me too, you are right it was 87.

Hi


I enjoyed Ian McCaskills little asides, like when he was forcasting rain for Scotland, he would add, "sorry Mother" followed by an impish grin.


As a retired Mountaineer, I loved the study of weather, but we get too many forecasts now, they are very irritating, ( why do they have to stand out in the pouring rain, or up to their knees in a puddle) and they are often wrong, especially, so called long range ones.


Andy smile!
