There was a gust yesterday which fair shook my house, but nothing broke. I don't think the weather's been unusual for November.
For some reason there's a new system whereby every storm that comes in is being given a name, as if it was a hurricane. This just makes it easier for the media to dramatise things, write more and create the appearance of things being bad. Because they've got a name, even storms which arrive in the far north and the national press would previously have ignored, get written about.
The same goes for the hot weather system which I think is only used in England. It's not enough to say it's going to be hot, take care. There has to be a red or amber warning apparently.
