  1. Definitely been more usual windy weather this year so far with gusts mostly in 25-38mph range. We managed 46mph in November but that was from a shower which probably had nothing to do with the low that we had.

    Yes Its clear that the area of strongest winds didn't hit the main cities as we would be seeing a very different picture now.   Don't be dissapointed though William, we should all be thankful. I would never wish 200mph sustained winds on anyone and was relieved when I'd seen the cities in Mexico still standing on the morning news.
  3. Major Hurricane Patricia

    Surprised to hear of this going on to be honest.   Doesn't anyone find it very odd that this has developed so much within the space of a day?   By the way, anyone who thinks they can ride out winds of 200-250mph are very uneducated unless they live in an underground storm shelter. Lets not forget that an EF5 tornado has winds of 201-234mph at ground level and look at how much damage they cause.
  4. Yes. I'd imagine the type of storms you witness the most are Windstorms rather than Thunderstorms in your part of the world.
  5. I would have said the same thing back earlier in the year, but as this year has turned out to be such a let down so far it just doesn't even bother me anymore.   Its got to the point where every time a risk of thunder has been forecast, I just ignore it or say quietly to myself 'yep well that won't happen!'  
  6. I already did something similar to this a few years ago, but since then have decided to do a more serious, realistic version of it.   Four versions I will go through here, the first is a 10mph increment one, the second a very general version based off of Torro Tornado Wind estimates, third the most detailed list including all of beauforts ranges up to Force 31, and fourth based on the average winds on the basic and extended beaufort scale.   The First goes up in 10mph increments and each 10mph has a character or superhero given, and the idea is that the windspeed is actually the characters range of fighting the environment as they attack it. Of Course we just can't see them!   0mph: Nibbler   10mph: Cubert   20mph: Fry   30mph: Bender   40mph: Leela   50mph: Spiderman   60mph: Green Goblin   70mph: Electro (Weakest Form)   80mph: Iron Man   90mph: Colossus   100mph: 9ft Incredible Hulk   110mph: Red Hulk/ Abomination   120mph: Gatekeeper   130mph: Thor   140mph: Silver Surfer   150mph: Morg   160mph: Tyrant   170mph: Destroyer   180mph: Scout Celestial   190mph: Dream Celestial   200mph: Judge Celestial   210mph: Akhenaten   220mph: Galactus   230mph: Chaos   240mph: Cytorak   250mph: Infinity   260mph: Eternity   270mph: Thanos   280mph: Living Tribunal   290mph: Beyonder   300mph Or Higher: One Above All   The range would probably work where say for leela her range would be from 36-45mph. A little Effort would be  36-40mph and A lot of effort 41-45mph. On top of that each mph would be given a colour code which would go up like this: 41mph: Green, 42mph: Yellow, 43mph: Orange, 44mph: Red and 45mph Purple.      Second is The Most Basic Version:   0-3mph: Cricket   4-12mph: Nibbler   13-24mph: Cubert   25-38mph: Bender   39-54mph: Leela   55-72mph: Spiderman   73-92mph: Iron Man   93-114mph: 9ft Incredible Hulk   115-136mph: Thor   137-160mph: Silver Surfer   161-186mph: Destroyer   187-212mph: Celestial   213-240mph: Galactus   241-269mph: Thanos   270-299mph: Living Tribunal   300mph+: One Above All     And Third The Most Detailed, With All of the levels following the basic and extended beaufort ranges:   0mph: No One 1-3mph: Cricket 4-7mph: Katrina Fairy 8-12mph: Nibbler 13-18mph: Cubert Farnsworth 19-24mph: Philip Fry 25-31mph: Bender 32-38mph: Rainier Wolfcastle 39-46mph: Turanga Leela ​47-54mph: Taki (Soul Caliber Fighter) 55-63mph: Spiderman 64-72mph: Green Goblin 73-82mph: Electro (Weakest Version) 83-92mph: Iron man 93-103mph: Colossus 104-114mph: 9ft Incredible Hulk 115-125mph: Gatekeeper 126-136mph: Thor 137-148mph: Silver Surfer 149-160mph: Morg 161-173mph: Tyrant 174-186mph: Destroyer 187-199mph: Celestial 200-212mph: Akhenaten 213-226mph: Galactus 227-240mph: Chaos 241-254mph: Eternity 255-269mph: Thanos 270-284mph: Living Tribunal 285-299mph: Beyonder 300-315mph: One Above All (In Marvel) 316mph+: One Above All (Outside Of Marvel)     And Finally the fourth Version which is based on average speeds:   0mph: No One 1-3mph: Cricket 4-7mph: Katrina Fairy 8-12mph: Nibbler 13-18mph: Cubert Farnsworth 19-24mph: Philip Fry 25-31mph: Bender 32-38mph: Turanga Leela 39-46mph: Taki (Soul Calibur Fighter) 47-54mph: Spiderman 55-63mph: Iron Man 64-72mph: 9ft Incredible Hulk 73-82mph: Silver Surfer 83-92mph: Destroyer 93-103mph: Celestial 104-114mph: Galactus 115-125mph: Thanos 126-136mph: Living Tribunal 137mph+: One Above All   I Know this was long but I have been debating which is the best version out of the four of my fun hobby I do in my spare time.   I've been working on these for over a year now and have been wandering which version should be the best and final one.   Please Note that this is just a fun hobby I do in my spare time, its nothing majorly serious!    
  7. Well I have allready spotted an error in their writing.   Quote: 'Experts said the worst of the weather is due to set in tonight before a relentless onslaught of wind and rain over the weekend.'   I'm sorry but this isn't the case, Gales are expected tonight for Coastal areas then Saturday will see the worse winds with severe gales and gusts of 65-80mph in the far southwest coastal districts.   The talk of 150mph winds however is something completely lauphable and only an idiot with a brain the size of a fleck of dust would write this type of rubbish.
