To take a look back in times past, its easy to see future direction you need to be.

MB and CH good to hear that you're treating the conditions as business as usual ;-)

I love the two last lines on the extreme weather warning.

Over here we get TV weather forecasts that see the need when forecasting
rain to tell us all to carry umbrellas, and when forecasting cold to wear a coat outdoors.

Can you imagine how confused the population would be without these instructions?
