    The Storm Approaching Sunday/Monday

    Hi all,

    We are in the path of the forecast storm. I have been watching my E-Mail to see if senior staff would tell us not to come in tomorrow: Nothing so far. If I don't get an E-Mail I will be going in [even though we are on half term: there is work to be done]

    What are your plans?

    The same as they were in 1987. Do as planned. Unfortunately in 1987 we had no electricity, no trains and the riads were blocked by fallen trees and that day's plan was going home to Yorkshire to see mum... so I had to change my plan. Plans may get changed tomorrow morning, but not until then.

    Weatherman - "There's going to be some weather other than sun or light rain"
    Southerner - "Sorry boss, I won't be coming into work for the next few days, there's going to be weather"

    Being a proper geek I go into school when the weather is good and take the day off if it looks bad.

    Looking at the map above,

    We are actualy just on the very edge of the non shaded to light shaded area...

    However this place has it's own weather system here could be a bright sunny day, drive 2 miles out of town and it could be 10ft snow drifts

    Yesterday on the news the weather forecasters were increasingly confident they had got it right and that a huge storm is on it's way, there's no hurricane on it's way, lol

    Going in and manning the pumps in case we get a bit of rain, if not then 8 Imacs will get built and installed in the new media suite :-)

    Very true of most Southerners. :P

    We're right in the path of the storm, so just have to see what I wake up to. Mr Fish says that it won't be as bad as 1987, but he said something like that last time...

    (to be fair, his forecast is taken out of all context, but it's become such a meme that it's hard to resist!)

    Same as for any other type of weather - As long as I can get out of my front door then I'm off to work as normal. We don't close during all the snow that has people in a panic around my way, so I can't imagine things will change for a bit of wind.

    I think a bigger worry tomorrow will be finding out if NTP has worked. It should, of course, but I always have that nagging doubt when I go in after the clocks change.
