    That’s because they’re all essentially the same film.

        That storm took fuck all of the humidity, it's still muggy. Now I believe in nothing.

          Yikes:

          Major power failures have been reported across large areas of the UK, affecting trains, airports and traffic lights.

          Power operators for the South East, Midlands, South West and Wales said there was a "major incident" affecting electricity.

          UK Power Networks said it believed it was due to a "failure on National Grid's network".

          Transport for London said the drop in power is affecting traffic lights, while many trains have been delayed.

          Blackouts have also been reported in the North East.
          Don't actually know if it's whether related, but maybe.

            Dry run for the General Election on 1 November, innit?

              Next thing you will suggest that an unfettered right to drive on the pavement is not an integral element of the heritage of every Roman citizen.
              Come to Sheffield.

              Where there's an unfettered right to park on the pavements, park at bus stops, thieve work from local PHV drivers (if you live in Lancashire), drive in bus lanes, and turn right against no right turn signs when someone on foot is crossing the road.


              If only we could set up some form of camp for these people.

              e.g. Stocksbridge. Where the racist filth who vote for UKIP live.

              And cyclists? You don't miss out. You can cycle through red lights at pedestrian crossings and on the ride on the pavements

                Yeah, but it's a dry heat.

                  Is it a coincidence that Sajid Javid was at the National Grid Training Center today?

                      There was a big storm at 5pm in Duesseldorf today that delayed my flight for an hour.

                        Enappsys, an energy consultancy, said the blackout may have been caused by the unexpected shutdowns of the Hornsea offshore wind farm, which is owned by the Danish wind farm company Orsted, and the Little Barford gas-fired power plant, owned by German utility giant RWE.

                          I'm willing to live by candlelight for the occasional evening if it gets the message across that the UK's current course is a massive boatload of shit. Which is on fire.

                            Twitter full of cretins screaming about unreliable renewables.

                            Ah, for the days when a blackout was an annoying if slightly fun event as opposed to a chance for climate deniers to post nonsense.

                              We return from holiday today and have woken up to photos on social media of flooding on our road. Our house should be ok, the road has a slight gradient (I know it very well from running and walking routes) and we're at the slightly higher end. However even at the lowest point it's still one of the higher elevations in Carlisle and so it must be the drains backing up, and it must have been a hell of a downpour in a short space of time to achieve that.

                              Some of the usual risk areas in town also seem to have had a bit of localised flooding but not on the scale of our "once every hundred years" flooding that has happened twice in the past 13 years. However there's a solid day of rain forecast today so our return home around midnight tonight will be interesting, both for the journey from the airport and what we find when we get to Carlisle.

                                  There is gathering model evidence that we will turn a corner weather wise after this week-end storm. High pressure is building from the south next week, the BH week-end is starting to look pretty decent...

                                    Absolutely bucketing down and I didn't bring my brolly or raincoat as the forecast was mild. Very glad I got an early lunch.

                                      It has rained for precisely 20 minutes in Romsey today. 10 minutes on my morning fag break, 10 minutes on my lunchtime one. Anyone in the area should watch out at approx 3.30 this afternoon when I intend to take my last one.

                                          Only drizzle where we were. Humid, though.

                                            Not sure if this should be in the map thread or the weather thread, but thanks to Greta Thunberg's crossing of the Atlantic, I have become aware of Windy.com, which seems excellent.

                                              So, the late August Bank Holiday Monday temperature record has been comprehensively smashed - was 28.2C (in 2017) but we've already hit 32.4C today and it'll probably go a bit higher.

                                              It was 33.3C yesterday when the new late August Bank Holiday weekend record was set.

                                                    I'm in Provence and it's mid to high thirties here, so it appears there's no escape back home.
