Superstorm. Climate Change. And after all that the UK has done to fight global warming, this is the thanks they get.

They will have to tax more and make everyone equal and jail anyone who disagrees... that will solve this problem.

“massive “sea swell” towards the UK which when hurled against the coast will send waves of more than 75-feet crashing inshore”

Your Kid may get diverted to Scotland as the storm will be on all over the weekend.
Scotland is just a 5 hour train ride from London.

Damn...that pic of Cameron bears an eerie resemblance to Mitch McConnell...

This isn't one of those jackass named winter storms that made its way across the Atlantic, is it?

This might not be a case of exaggeration.

Besides being a big storm to begin with, many European countries are used to mild weather and are really not prepared for severe winter conditions.

We in Canada and the northern US can laugh and dismiss it with “oh, a snowstorm, bfd” ‘cuz our cities are ready - experienced teams of snowplows, salt or sand trucks, people who know how to drive in snow/ice, etc. - but in Europe, there’s very little of that. Most houses don’t even have a snowshovel!

When they get hit, it’s a very big deal.

On the bright side; these crashing sea waves should eliminate the triffid problem in coastal areas.

Don't say that. She has a connecting flight to Vienna :(

And if you say a train is an alternative...she has to be in class Monday morning...and a train from Glasgow to Vienna would be two days.

So if they divert, I hope they divert to De Gaulle.

The magical mystery gas is coming to take you away.

This is clearly caused by excessive CO2 and global warming.

I wouldn't make fun, but this nowhere near the scale of (for example) the tsunami that hit Japan in 2011.

(But I'm still terrified.)

Had to look up "Triffid".

It's worse than I tought - They sound like democrats!!!

"Triffids are tall plants capable of aggressive and seemingly intelligent behaviour. They are able to move about by "walking" on their roots, appear to communicate with each other, and possess a deadly whip-like poisonous sting that enables them to kill their victims and feed on their rotting carcasses. Their appearance is vaguely similar to gigantic asparagus shoots topped with a flower-like 'head' that somewhat resemble a Vanda Miss Joaquim orchid and houses their deadly stinger."

Has anyone checked down the coast a bit to the South to see if the Spanish might have an Armada trying to slip up on Jplly Old England?

LOL...never looked at them from that perspective! (In the movie; triffids were destroyed by sea water...in the book; they just learned to 'co-exist' with humanity. Can Democrats 'co-exist' with others? Hmmm...)

Here's a cool earth wind map. You can see how strong it is. Click on EARTH in the lower left corner to change settings. Higher hPa = lower altitude. Drag and drop to rotate, click and roll your mouse to zoom. I love this model!

This is left over from a similar thread last week.

No paper other than “Express” makes any mention of this, and the weather.com 10-day forecast for London makes no mention of snow.

Check with her airline - if there’s an alternate connection through another city (Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, Stockholm, Rome, etc.) they may allow a change for no fees. They don’t want to deal with diverted passengers and closed airports either.

It's BA, so it's pretty unlikely.

But it's a good idea anyway, so I will do so.
