Adore British commenters – this is a selection over the Michael Fish warning for late Sunday/early Monday:
# “At least one person has died in a crash involving a newspaper delivery van and a car on the M62-M1 slip road today as weather conditions worsened”. Yet the storm was only forming on Saturday morning somewhere not far from Canada. How does that work then?
# The government should use the army to stop the storm from ravaging the nation.
# That puts sun bathing off the list for Monday then…
# Let’s hope it takes a few of the useless wind turbines with it as it passes through, all of which will be switched off as we pay for their non use.
# It’s the rioters and scavengers in London picking over the carcass you’ve got to worry about…
# I’m glad I’ve got 6 years worth of food and water stashed under my floorboards.
# Rats! Just when I spent all morning raking leaves.
# I love the random picture of the sheep standing waiting for the storm to approach. I’m surprised that the DM didn’t interview it for it’s opinion!
# Once again all you idiots out there DON’T PARK your car under a tree or in a low area that is pron to flooding. What do you expect them to do, park their car 4 miles away and then walk to their home built on the floodplains?
# Yes,I remember it well…Daddy’s Rolls was sliced in half because of the trees in our driveway and Mama’s Ferrari was blown 3 miles down the drive to the gatekeeper’s lodge !
# So I’m due to fly home in this tomorrow night from Cyprus. I’m taking extra pants…..
# Let the chaos begin …
