    Doris is coming!
    Omg, Storm Doris is heading straight for me, and it is 'bombing'!
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39053508
    Actually right on the storm track isn't the worst place to be - the heavy snow will be on the north side so we may just miss it and just get rain, and the severe gale warnings are for the north and south sides so this place is in the gap between. But sounds like we may get quite a kick from its backside as it heads away and the northerly gales kick in tomorrow afternoon, I've secured everything I can outside just in case.

    I am sorry to hear about Doris. Storms have become so frightful. Please let me know when the danger has passed. If you don't, I shall have to presume you were blown away.

    Thanks Alex :) I am still here and so is the house, it is Doris which has blown away.
    But chaos across the country apparently - and one killed but that was in Wolverhampton so I guess it was a blessed release for her.

    The overturned lorries are quite impressive. I once drove over the Stainmoor Pass just as a gale was subsiding and clearly they hadn't closed the stormgates when they should have, as I had to thread my way round three overturned lorries on the dual carriageway.

    If the lorries don't get you, the flying machines will...



    or the SUVs...

    I will instruct them, and tell Gabriel to keep special watch for any SUVs that seem to be suspiciously close to the roof of a dentist's. He's good like that, he swoops down just like an angel, plucks the SUV out of the air and puts it gently down on the street - then extracts the driver not so gently, 'translates' him into the dentist's straight through the wall and into the chair and instructs the dentist to use absolutely no anaesthetic at all. Or, if he's having one of those days, he's been known to have a quick pray with me then transform the anaesthetic into concentrated sulphuric acid. Well, it's a bit less vanilla than water into wine, that gets a tad boring after you've been doing it for nigh on 2000 years.

    I'm cold, but I suppose I should be grateful it isn't snowing.

    It's dismal here too. The whole world is depressed.

    It's been wet and miserable today, inevitable given that Lancashire and Yorkshire were playing cricket in the Roaes match, but we've had some warm sunny days over the last couple of weeks so erhaps we shouldn't complain too much

    Seriously stormy on Jupiter right now (OK I'm not strictly there myself right now, but I'm working on it)

    I am interested in astronomy, but Jupiter is so close...been there, done that. Can't you show me a photo of someplace FAR FAR AWAY that I haven't seen yet?
