Here we can discussed the weather we all have. At the moment we have a huge storm. 3 deaths already. It's dangerous to go outside. All trains are canceled. a satellite dish was blown awayand landed behind my apartment.

We have hurricane winds and it's quite rainy as well, but it's hardly dangerous and I was having an awesome time watching the storm before. :D

Yikes... hurricanes? :S

The weather's not so bad today.  We had the first actual snowfall a few days ago.  It was blistering cold the next day and the day after. ::)

Well, extremely strong winds that are often referred to as hurricanes, yes. Along with a bunch of rain. :P

I'm also jealous about the snow! :P

A lot of the snow on the streets and sidewalks have turned into disgusting black slush, so I doubt you'd really be jealous of all that. :P

But that's pretty horrible about the hurricane force winds.  We've had some really strong winds a few times in the past, and they're certainly not fun to be in... combined with rain.. ugh. :-\

Nah, one just has to watch out for stray branches and one will generally be fine. :P It's really not that bad. :)

But the rain is more than slightly annoying if one's in it as I found out earlier today, but the storms are fun to watch. :)

As for the slush, I actually am a bit jealous. :P This is the first Winter through which I've gone when it hasn't snowed at all. :-\

I was perfectly fine with there being no snow whatsoever until now! :P

Oh well, at least it hasn't gotten to the bitterly cold and freezing winds yet.  When it's slightly cold outside and there's snow I don't mind, but when it's -20 to -40, it's really disgusting. :X

That's good. The one in the Netherlands sounds pretty bad, though.

I enjoy watching and listening to storms too.

No it wasn't a hurricane but it did have hurricane force winds. 105 mph

Well I'm safe (even after the satelite incident).
And in the end there are 5 deaths. Loads of people had to stay at the stations since all train traffuc was canceled. A colega of mine slept at his desk since he couldn't get home. I woke him up this morning  :suffer:

Only lots of material damege. I hope all train trafic will be normal today since I want to go to my bro's birthday party.

RAIN! Oh rain, thou has blessed us! :P

We got so much rain today, there were actually puddles you could jump in and make splashes with. :P

We haven't see this much rain for maybe over a year. :-\

It's being referred to as Hurricane Kyrill over here, so I don't know. But they're force winds more than anything else. :)

Ice-wintertires=no driving today
Lucky me No snow has fallen yet!

The wind has caused a lot of damage, and I also heard about two trees falling on a house in Beguim.

I drove home today to stay for the weekend. I opened the freezer door and found a big snowball with "Hot Stuff" written on it from yesterday that my sister decided to name and keep.  XD

Strange! I wonder why they would do that? It wasn't cyclonic nor was the water temperatures right for one to develop. I don't understand that. ???
