Weathermen and reality

  • by

Here’s what the BBC’s weather forecast site said that my area should be like at 15.00 hours today.

And here’s a picture of the reality, taken from my front door at 15:20:

DSC_0117Presumably the BBC weather people are having some kind of tanked-up Christmas party. That’s the only explanation I can think of for the COMPLETE AND UTTER ABSENCE OF ANY SUN FROM THIS AREA TODAY. Did you get that? THERE IS NO SUN. I am sitting in my office in a sleeping bag. It is so cold that I am scared to sneeze in case my nose shatters. It is so cold that the rest of the family are huddling in the fridge to keep warm. There are Polar Bears roaming up and down outside the co-op and icebergs floating under the tollbridge.

SO WHAT’S THAT SUN GRAPHIC DOING ON YOUR FORECAST!?

Ahem. Happy Christmas everyone. I feel better now.
