Re: the implications of such a mild winter.

I don't mind the pests, never had much of [what I would consider] a problem with them anyway. And I'm not one to spray plants growing outside, if you need to spray there is something wrong with your garden. Natural ecosystems such as forests don't need to be sprayed and are perfectly fine. Work wit...

Re: Daily Express takes its global warming theorum up a leve

As much as I'm peeved off with the rain etc, I still wouldn't want a 1976 summer thank you very much. Warm and sunny yes, but periods of rain in between would suit me just fine. I wouldn't mind a 76 Summer, though I must admit I spent most of it at the Beach being about 13 at the time, But I would ...

Re: Daily Express takes its global warming theorum up a leve

it may well have been even wetter in January 1066 but this is of little relevance to people who have had their homes & businesses flooded... Yes, little relevance to those flooded, but very relevant in the scheme of things where the doomsdays climate change brigade are concerned. Yes it is relevant...

Re: Are we safe yet?.

Not that it's any use to you, but mine never get covered. and with Pstems 10 to 12ft I wouldn't even if I could manage too.

Re: storm to hit more southern areas: 14/02/2014-15/02/2014)

Already showing it's face here with strong south easterly winds and rain, feels very cold at the moment, but should vere round to straight south's shortly and then south westerly later.
Every one of these storms have brought trees down locally and I expect a few more will be down tonight
