Won a race once. AND DON'T YOU EVER FORGET IT

  • Hit the North Weatherwatch

    Yep, only a few days until it all kicks off in a northern field 39 mins* away from my front door.

    Lets see what the boffins at the weather centres have to say:

    bbc
    met office
    weather.co.uk

    aah, bugger.

    met office looks to be the nicest so far, so I’ll believe them.

    *AA routefinder claims its 39mins away by car

    It’s much further from mine.

    The BBC and Met Office sites are showing it as sunny now. Even uk.weather.com, which says it’ll rain, is really only saying a 30% chance. I’ll take those odds.

    hello dave, re your comment on my site, text me your address

    I’ve been an idiot and updated the software for my site remotly and broken it. I can’t fix it without exposing some passwords that I don’t want to type into an unknown computer, so it’ll stay broken until I’m back next week.

    I WAS TOTALLY RIGHT ABOUT THE WEATHER!
