Same here! Surely it's a mistake. Meant to be going to Aviemore for the Soulpad's inaugural outing. According to Met Check we arrive in winds of 2mph.....a couple of hours later we will be swept up Wizard of Oz style in gusts of over 220mph. And it get's worse from there.
I have said this before, but in my head, there is a nice little man who runs metcheck and every year his holiday conincides with mine and he leaves his teenage stoner son in charge to do the forcasting.
<ffffffffffffftttttttttttttttt> (huge inhale)
Heh heh heh, what does the pink button do?
Tornado stylee winds, cool.
Heh heh armageddon, funny.
We didn't get the snow last year, so I imagine we won't be blown off the campsite this year.
Do not panic winefairy, metcheck (imo) is the most unreliable weather service ever, I tend to check it and presume the weather will be exactly opposite to the forcast.
Yesterday they predicted rain all day for where we live live, we had not a drop, I don't know why I look at it, I really don't, it is like a compulsion.
Where's OYBBK when we need her? If we can bring down an ancient newspaper surely we can get to the bottom of weird wind predictions? <<goes off into a fantasy world where MN saves the world from a Day after Tomorrow type scenario helped by Hugh Grant>>
Oh, the relief!! Although it was terrifying fun while it lasted!
I had visions of DH's first camping trip going disastrously wrong. I envisaged him rocking in a corner during the Wizard of Oz weather repeating "There's no place like home, there's no place like home!"
I thought it was maybe something to do with St Swithin's day? (15th July, day before my birthday, if it rains on the 15th it'll rain for the rest of summer, basically.) I have pink wind (299 mph) from the 16th for our postcode. Thought maybe someone who works for Met Check is very, very superstitious.
