24th October - Today's News: Hurricane Patricia Hits Mexico

Afte rmaking landfall in Mexico as the strongest hurricane ever recorded, Hurricane Patricia weakens but still 'extremely dangerous' - the full scale of the devastation - and any casualties - will not be known until daylight so a lot more on this on Monday.  The latest on Hurricane Patricia includes the fact that 5,000mm of rain have fallen in 24 hours.   That's over sixteen feet!   Although it could be a misprint .... ?

And how and why Patricia stands above the four other most severe hurricanes in history

21st October - Today's News: 36 Days of Snow Forecast. But Only in Aviemore.

According to the Mirror, in a story replicated in local media around the country, 36 days of snow forecast this winter.   Which is correct.   If you live in Aviemore.   As usual the media have completely ballsed it up.   And, of course, there is no saying the forecast will be right.   It's very unlikely indeed to be the coldest winter this century, let alone ever.   But it could be colder/snowier than the last couple of years.
