If you're someone who knows me well enough, you'd know I have an interest with the weather (and to some extent other natural disasters too), so yesterday I got bored and usually when I get bored random ideas pop into my head, and one did so, of which I think would be of use to a majority of the online UK WX scene. Ok, so maybe not so at this time of year, but definitely during the year it may be quite handy.
The main reason this idea popped into my head, was because earlier this year when various storms were... [read more]
On Tuesday (21st October 2014) a handful of news websites started running stories along with this image, saying it was a picture taken by Adam Wright of a tornado in Burton.

Just a normal day in the crazy Big Smoke. Also, nope, don't worry, that's NOT another one of Prince Harry's drunken escapades that you can see in the picture. It's actually some random bloke - naked, may I add, who's decided to mount a statue in Whitehall, London causing police to shut the street off. This incident happened just over an hour or so ago, no idea who he is nor the reason as to why he decided to go starkers... luckily he didn't do it yesterday... [read more]
