And now there’s bloody Abigail

1 Comment

Oh for God’s sake! There’s another bloody storm on its way.

Britain’s first official named storm – Abigail – will hit on Thursday bringing 80mph winds and potentially hazardous waves, the Met Office has confirmed.

Storm Abigail will arrive in the evening of 12 November, bringing strong winds to the north of the UK as a deep low pressure system moves across the Atlantic.

It is a landmark for UK forecasting, representing the first time that a severe weather system has been given a name under the Met Office’s “Name Our Storms” project.

I’ve got a suitable name  I will use when she gets to us here in the North – “Damn and Blast”!

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

  1. My guess is it’s to sensationalise weather events, got to keep the climate change pot bubbling.
    They have to do something to justify 220 million a year.
