I'm not surprised actually, it was awful this morning weather wise! No tornadoes out side here though :p

We had a very violent - if short-lived - rain storm this morning, and it's been very windy all day. Hopefully no damage yet.

Woah! :eek:

I'm sure Gordon Brown will use a one off occurrence like this as an excuse to raise taxes.

Hmmm, taxes for what exactly?

I'm in London and it's been pretty windy, but nothing unusual. Maybe I slept through the really bad stuff. When I was a baby I slept through the mid 1980s tornado. So did my mum. She didn't know anything was wrong until she opened the curtains the next morning and saw the devistation. :D

Hmmm, taxes for what exactly?Probably something like air taxes. Or maybe he'll widen the congestion charge zone?

Who knows how he'll rob the British people of money next?

Well, suggesting that the prime minister will raise taxes because people have lost some roof tiles tickes my funny bone :D

This almost like, whats the most obscure thing you can think of to talk about in this thread wind =taxes. I love the way your mind works :vlol: :vlol:

Anyway, back on topic found some more information and pictures about the squall line here (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7010172.stm) :wve:

Usually when out of the ordinary things concerning weather happen in this country the blame is always put on climate change. When actually it's just a freak tornado that has nothing to do with climate change.

Mad Tony, at the risk of sounding like someone who knows about the effects of climate change and how it affects weather patterns, you need to read New Scientist more ;)

I ment taking a topic and making an obscure connection to the pm. Just like he does with taxes :vlol:

Cat woke me up going crazy, thought the roof was going to come off. Just wondered if anyone had any good pics?

It's got nothing to do with pollution or Gordon Brown. Don't you know that this is all George Bush's fault?

The Floods in July and now tornados? It looks like Global Warming really is at our doorstep.

Luckyl i didnt get hit! Even though one was very near! Hope everyone ok.

deepbluesea
24-09-07, 18:01
Gosh and this has never hit us in the past just because this doesn't happen very often doesn't mean its global warming, its part of the cycle of the earth. i wish people would stop getting washed up in the media. Do some rearch going back millions of years and you'll see this happens quite often, I'll just go get my proof.

Mad Tony

These sorts of things are just freak weather storms. Not to do with "global warming" or anything like that.

@deepbluesea: Exactly my point. :tmb:

Greenkey2
24-09-07, 18:03
The process of climate change (aka, global warming) does not necessarily equate with 'warmer' weather, but a generally more unstable climate overall.


I'd say an increase in freak weather qualifies as proof of climate change (and more importantly climatologists know it does). But, as deepbluesea says, this is not a one-off event but part of the processes that have been going on from the Earth's creation.

This does say things are changing but we may as well try to stop the tides for all the good it would do. I say stop trying to stop the inevetable and look to what needs to be done when it happens

They are part of global warming but soon after we'll get global cooling then it weill all start again

The weather woke me up early this morning too, I'm glad I didn't see the news at the time I would have freaked, tornadoes scare me more than anything else :(

It was really wet and windy here though I didn't see a tornado, thank gosh! It was so dark though, now I think about it, I was confused at why it was calm one part of the street and the other, the trees were blowing like mad :/

Apparently we get around 33 a year though I'm not sure if that's true, I've never seen one thank gosh and I hope everyone affected is okay :)
