The Storm With No Name

19Jan18

Weather

The Met Office outdid themselves this week.

They are useless at predicting the weather. That’s a shame because that’s the only thing they have to do. To try and distract us from how bad they are at their only job, a couple of years ago, they announced that they’re going to give names to storms.

The first storm they named was Abigail on 10 November 2015. Since then, they’ve named loads of them. That was until the storm we had this week.

A storm with no name wreaked havoc. Devastating winds and snow showers caused major travel delays. 35,000 homes were left without power. Wind gusts of up to 95 mph brought down trees onto rail lines and roads, forced bridges to close and disrupted flights, trains and ferry services.

The reason THIS storm didn’t get a name? The Met Office hadn’t even predicted it.

Craic on!
