    The Weather Thread (Sponsored by the Autumn Equinox 2015)

    Which is today.

    It is fooking freezing, and a bit windy too. Dark nights it's really starting to feel wintery, even though it's actually the start of Autumn. I hate this weather, when it's neither proper freezing and entertaining or proper hot and cozy.

    But yeah, storms n shit in here please.

    I hate this. About eight months until we get any nice weather now. I wouldn't mind if we got loads of frost or snow but it will just piss down and I'll never see daylight outside of working hours.

    Crap isn't it? I can't stand the dark evenings, really depresses me.

    I absolutely love Autumn weather..

    Perfect temperature for running/outdoor expertise (football). I like having to put the heating on and it being nice a toasty when I get in from work. Basically, I want every day to be a Sunday, and winter allows this.

    I'd prefer if it were 4/5 degrees cooler actually and pitch black in the mornings.

    Been nice here today, especially this morning. Took a trip to the park and didn't need a jacket. On the other hand though, it was dark out when I woke up, I'm not a fan of that.

    Been freezing in the house recently. A nice roaring fire sorts that out nicely. Top.

    Rainin' sideways. Should be fun if the river pops. They've got the Lumiere festival on and naturally there's a couple of things right on the riverside.

    They've pre-emptively closed schools here, which I think they'll regret given this is about the calmest evening of the whole week so far.

    It's more or less a typical November's day here, and yet people are pissing themselves and getting all excited as if it's the first time they've seen stormy weather. I suppose the fact a bunch of parents have had to take the day off work is playing in to that, but it's amazing the impact giving something a name can have.

    Last week I got caught on my way back from the train in the sort of rain normally associated with Biblical wrath-of-God tales and environmental apocalypse movies. Tonight just as I get to the station it starts chucking down with hail the size of small babies. Fuck off, Abigail.

    Check out the flooding near Strabane (15 minutes away from us) today. It floods quite regularly, but I've never seen it so bad before.

    We had some lying at around 6am but it had all fucked off by 9am. Today at the football was freezing, even woth. Hat, scarf amd gloves on. Hopefully we get a cold winter. If not I'll at least get a few proper winter days in Tromso in February.

    It's been headlight weather all day today, and it's getting dark now too, on Friday the sun will set at 3:44PM.

    It rises at 08:14.

    You forget how utterly shit winter is.

    According to Google, sunset here is at 4:11pm. How depressing.

    Storm Desmond brought some of the worst flooding I've ever seen to Donegal yesterday. Took me three hours to do a 1.5 hour journey yesterday afternoon as one of the towns on my route was basically entirely submerged, as you can see in the picture. I think a state of emergency was declared in Ballybofey when Aldi and the local department store flooded.

    Fucking hell, I was down in Wexford yesterday for a while and I thought that was bad but that is unreal. I did get diverted twice by fallen trees, but nothing near that water. The Slaney had covered a lot of fields but seemed to be ok around the towns.

    Huh, I didn't realise it was bad on the east coast too. It was grand going through Limavady and Derry, then all hell broke loose when I crossed the border, thankfully before the Mourne burst its banks in Strabane, otherwise I would have had a much longer detour to get home.

    It was ok early but Wexford and Wicklow got changed from status yellow to orange in the early evening and got pretty hairy, the wind blowing the car on the road was as bad as I've felt. Good bit of damage around SW and W Dublin when I got back this morning too.

    It's bollocks, but worse still it's warm! Well cold just now but Thursday it'll be windy, rainy and 13C. That's fucking unacceptable. I want calm and frosty or snow. Fuck off with this Autumnal weather. We all know February is going to be utter shit.

    Snow would have been great but I'm a two minute walk away from work these days so I'd have no reason not to go in.

    It's been raining for about the last 4 weeks solid, the wettest December since 1910 (awesome time to notice your roof is leaking), and I don't think I've seen the sun since then. It's absolutely appalling.

    We ot probably ten inches of snow today and there's meant to be quite a bit more coming tomorrow too. Can't wait to jump there after a sauna today though.





    No idea what I did wrong with the pics, but they work when you open them in a new tab.

    edit: better pics at the end of this article anyway: http://www.hs.fi/kaupunki/a1452570679671

    Still not cold enough for me. I want a proper dose of winter then I can start looking forward to the summer. I've still only had to scrape the car twice this winter which is a fucking appalling state of affairs. Going to get colder as the week goes on, thankfully. Then Norway in just under four weeks.

    This wind looks a bit more impressive now that it's high tide. I can see a marina from my window and half of the boats look close to going under.

    Wind up to 64mph (Force 11) with first >100mph gust of the day recorded.

    This is looking over a very well sheltered harbour:
