  1. Does this mean you'll have to clear the weather damage at Wingham by yourself Peggy? I'd offer to help but my back is playing up (Hope Steve is fit and well soon)

  3. Pressure dropping quite quickly now. Wind increasing. http://resource.npl.co.uk/pressure/pressure.html

  5. No, it will be brushing past the UK bringing high winds and heavy rain over saturated ground. Christmas Eve will not be a good day to travel.
  6. I found that if you enter a string of characters, highlight the string entered and right click on the highlighted string, it allows the paste option overwriting the highlighted string.

  8. This is so cool http://earth.nullschool.net/#current/wind/isobaric/1000hPa/orthographic=-4.37,53.29,400
  9. We may not even be real. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/12/12/physicists-universe-simulation-test-university-of-washington-matrix_n_2282745.html
  10. On the tidal stretches of the Medway, the salt water being denser than freshwater flows close to the bottom, whereas the freshwater is higher near the surface. Of course mixing occurs as the current hits obstacles etc., but it's sometimes possible to catch saltwater species fishing near the bottom and coarse fish by fishing shallow in the same swim. During spring tides, when the saltwater retreats out quite a way, and when there is a lot of freshwater coming down the river, roach have been caught down as far as Rochester feeding amongst the crabs and bladderwrack. As the tide runs twice a day, I guess that the resident fish have learned the ropes and know how to stay in the strata that best suits them. This tendency of salt and freshwater to stratify without too much mixing might mean that the fish of the broads are not so vulnerable to saltwater incursion as might be expected, perhaps?
  11. High tide in this part of the world around 2am, and again at 14:30 tomorrow. Fingers crossed. (I'm not at risk, but low lying coastal areas and rivers could be nasty, especially Sandwich)
  12. Best to stay in and watch the videos on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=762913277068742&set=vb.100000502306505&type=2&theater
  13. It's having quite an impact in Scotland and the North of England Newt. And we are expecting quite a tidal surge along the east coast tonight and on Friday. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-25227714
  14. Flood warnings for east coast tomorrow. http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/news/151055.aspx
  15. The usual pose is getting a bit boring now. Just for inspiration http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2013/dec/03/fishlove-2013-in-pictures?CMP=twt_fd#/?picture=424006645&index=0
  16. Plus tree species that find their crops predated have developed a strategy. If they produced the same amount of crop each year, the predator species population would expand so that very little of their crop would result in seedlings. So, they are meagre with the amount of food they produce most years, keeping the feeding of predators low, then every so often there will be a mast year, when they produce so much fruit that the predator population can't hope to eat it all, and lots of fruit is able to produce seedlings.
