Weather-a safe topic for mudcat?

Subject: Weather-a safe topic for mudcat?
From: Tim theTwangler

In view of all the warm air and blowing hot and cold on certain mudcat threads lately
(ok all the time)
I thought I would start a thread that would be an island of banality nestling serenly in the eye of the storm of debate.
A place were the true uncontentious nature of the Brit F(*)olky could be displayed for our freinds around the world who may have gotten the idea that we are a warlike and arguementative people.
So here it is.
The weather here in Grimsby is fine&sunny but a tad breezy with a hint of showers to come.
This means musically that I must be sure to fetch my guitar in doors when ever I need another beer or to use the bathroom.
How is it with you?

Hang on where did I put the word friends that you have taken such a dim veiw off?
IF you are refering to my use of the word freinds that I used in my intro to this thread, then I am afraid you are putting your own ignorance of the English language on public display.
I was of course quoting from the writings of the 11th century polemnicist Anon who used the word in several manuscripts.

We are always excluded from the circle of proper musicians to a position nearer the car park.

Another thread on Mudcat where the insidious and ever-present threat of the right-wing facist, racist elite attempt to take over the subject of the weather.

Well, I can tell you I've been exposed to the weather for forty years, as were many of my ancestors (my grandparents all had weather-related stories to tell). We didn't take part in the revivial because we didn't need to - our connection to the weather runs unbroken through the marrow of my family. Those upstarts who are out in the weather and think they know it all simply don't respect the old ways of the weather - we had some bloody hot summers before climate change came along you know.

I know what I'm talking about, everyone else doesn't and you Hitler-loving proles can kiss my Cumulus Nimbus.

Listen up, Tim the so-called Twang fucking ler- I'm an authority on Anon's writings, having edited her manuscripts with my grandad when we were at Cecil's flat. She had originally written "fiend", in reference to a man she suspected of looking at her- it was later male editors who made a bollox of it, as to be expected. Not only did they assume she meant "friend", they then got the spelling wrong. They probably felt that any old old sh*t would do (typical!). It's you and they who are the ignoramorum, not I (or is that "me", I'm never too sure).

Anyway - What's this about pretty weather ladies? Just asking for it now aren't you. Sexist, weatherist and appearencist at the same time, eh? Anyway, isn't it about time that we stopped reffering to weather in such a negative way? How do you expect the weather to earn an honest living if people expect it to do what it does for free? I, for one, am more than happy to pay a proper price to see decent, honest weather in a comfortable modern environment rather than round the back door of a grotty pub!

Now, Scottish weather is more like it: manly, tough, like out here in The West.

well - one could argue that a thread about bank vaults or similar diveices would be a "safe" thread; but I suppose one could argue against it as well.

weather just ain't what it used to be; heck, I was born in a short lull between two hurricanes - both of which made it further north then Cape Cod; both of which threw fishing boats up on shore, etc, etc, etc. These days the place would be declared a disaster zone - back then people just took snapshots to prove it happenned and then went on.

Do you twangle with others, Tim, or do you do it all on your lonesome?

I find that twangling can be enhanced by both good and bad weather conditions. Good weather conditions make anyone feel like twangling. Bad weather, on the other hand, works well too, because you want to get away from it into some cozy refuge where you can twangle and forget about the weather for awhile.

Once again another baseless generalization:

weather moves from West to East.

In the US some mild weather perhaps drifts across the continent in a west to east direction.

The REALLY BAD STUFF nearly always starts down "south of the border" and moves more in a northerly direction, entering the country illegally and without permission, paying no taxes, and causing horrific disruptions of our social welfare systems.

There ain't no "tropics"1 in the US, and we can do without all those "tropical storms." The current administration refuses to do anything about them, but we're gonna get some real environmental progressives in office and put up a real fence at the next election.

1 Except in the far Northwest where all the mudslides happen.

Actually, a folk tradition has always been that Nebraska is responsible for the northward drift of bad weather into Kansas.

Perhaps you've hit on a better answer, that it's not Nebraska, but that

          Nebraska ^Canada Sucks.

Somehow though, I doubt that our extremely talented and capable weather persons will find that a credible explanation.

So Spaw is vacationing in Mexico City is he?

We're getting our first decent rain for over a month now... and people are moaning! I'm not... my garden has suddenly turned green again!

Lots of little scuddy clouds today - Ireland's empties.

If fire is weather, now the Georgia fire has linked up with the Florida fire and has burned over 1,000 sq. miles.

America's largest city park, Griffiths Park has burned down sparing only 3 landmark buildings.

Catalina Island is on fire and all 4,000+ people have been evacuated.

Fire season starts later in the summer.

Looks like the same attacker of the help area has now redirected the robot to post as a GUEST to the main forum.

One suggested possible way to keep the troublesome GUESTS out permanently is to insist on total membership then - and for those who cannot keep a cookie on their PC - they will just have to put in their password for each post.

Just a theoretical suggestion, Max - but then I don't know just how much work rewriting that will involve.

No topic here now is apparently safe...

If I had to enter a password, that would mean I could no longer post. big whoop. Its happened to me at least a dozen times on other forums.

If I tried to recover my password since my email changed whey would say no such account exists and if I tried to register they claim my IP address or user name is already taken.

Its a perfect catch 22.

Weather may be safe to talk about...

but Tallahassee is completely engulfed by a fine yellow/blue/gray haze and my eyes are burning and my throat is irritated. Old people have to stay indoors. It is awful and so dry...eleven inches of rain below the year need already. About 200 fires in Florida and The Okefenokee Swamp is now the Okefenokee Barbecue. The Florida Folk Festival will have a fine coating of ash like it did in '02 when Offer was there...

But hey,,,it could be worse. Hurricane season starts in three weeks!

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

From: Don(Wyziwyg)T

THE LITTLE WEATHERMAN
Tune "The Little Beggarman" (Irish Trad.)


I am a little weatherman, you'll see me on TV,
I stand upon a box because I'm only five foot three,
I smile into the camera, to communicate to you,
That I really know me job, and every word I say is true,
        Of all the trades that's going, meteorology's the one,
        With the greatest chance of failure, ah! But that is half the fun,
        It really doesn't matter if I cock it up you see,
        For, when I'm on you're all out in the kitchen making tea.

Oh! The mysteries of forecasting are really quite obscure,
But the use of Doppler radar makes prediction very sure,
I forecast dry and sunny, over twenty three degrees,
And it rains so hard the water level's well above your knees,
        Take a tip, take the day off, take the car, get out of town,
        Pay a visit to the seaside, and you're sure to come back brown,
        You may boast about your suntan, if you really feel you must,
        But, unless they're blind or stupid, they will realise it's rust.

I stood upon me little box, one dark and stormy night,
And I told ten million viewers "There's no hurricane in sight",
Next morning, scattered far and wide were fifteen million trees,
I must be the country's worst case of the foot in mouth disease,
        And since that day I've tried right hard, to cover my backside,
        I predict the worst scenario, whatever might betide,
        For repeating that fiasco is the last thing I would wish,
        So TOMORROW WILL BE ROTTEN, and goodnight from Michael Fish.

January brings the snow,
Makes our feet and fingers glow.

February brings the rain,
Thaws the frozen lake again.

March brings breezes sharp and shrill,
Shakes the dancing daffodil.

April brings the primrose sweet,
Scatters daisies at our feet.

May brings flocks of pretty lambs,
Skipping by their fleecy dams.

June brings tulips, lillies, roses,
Fills the children's hands with posies.

Hot July brings cooling showers,
Apricots and gillyflowers.

August brings the sheaves of corn,
Then the harvest home is borne.

Warm September brings the fruit,
Sportsmen then begin to shoot.

Brown October brings the pheasant,
Then to gather nuts is pleasant.

Dull November brings the blast,
Then the leaves go whirling past.

Chill December brings the sleet,
Blazing fire and Christmas treat.


But I think Flanders and Swann had a better idea of the weather....

January brings the snow,
Makes our feet and fingers glow.

February's ice and sleet
Freeze the toes tight off your feet.

Welcome March with wintry wind
Would thou wert not so unkind!

April brings the sweet spring showers,
On and on for hours and hours.

Farmers fear unkindly May
Frost by night and hail by day.

June just rains and never stops
Thirty days and spoils the crops.

In July the sun is hot.
Is it shining? No, it's not.

August, cold and dank and wet,
Brings more rain than any yet.

Bleak September's mist and mud
Is enough to chill the blood.

Then October adds a gale,
Wind and slush and rain and hail.

Dark November brings the fog
Should not do it to a dog.

Freezing wet December, then
Bloody January again!

January brings the snow ...

Despite all you may have heard to the contrary, the rain in Spain stays almost invariably in the hills. Oh dear, what a weather this is. Still, it was very nice yesterday, wasn't it? Spring, I enjoyed that. Missed it last year, I was in the bathroom."

We too, in the UK, have had the experience of rain again. The country as a whole has had only 14% of it's normal April rainfall, only 2% has fallen on London. People don't believe me when I tell them we've had next to no rain since the middle of March.

Of course, May Bank holiday saw the official start of Summer so now it's poured down every day!

I was watching the news last night (something I rarely do) for news of the Florida fires, not a mention. Even on Sky/CBS news which puts it into 2 categories, USA and RestofWorld, there was not a word.

If you want, I can reopen the Extreme Weather Tavern we had a month back.... come in and wet yer whistles on Bert.
