More stormy weather predicted – Portsmouth News.

Debbi Garrod, 50, of Langstone High Street, said her uPVC door was able to keep most of the water at bay. The sea crept 10 inches up her door.
‘When I opened the door the water came rushing in,’ she said.

‘I closed the door quickly and then it was just a little trickle.’

If she knew that it was 10 inches up her door, why did she open it ?

Is it just me ?

Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers Dies At Age 74


Phil Everly of the Everly Brothers Dies At Age 74 « K-EARTH 101.

Phil Everly, one half of the Everly Brothers duo that provided part of the musical backdrop to my youth.  Who can forget hits such as “Cathy’s Clown,” “Wake Up Little Susie,” “Bye Bye Love,” “When Will I Be Loved” and “All I Have to Do Is Dream.”

The Everlys are cited, by many, as having been an influence on their musical careers and Phil Everly, with brother Don, has left behind a fabulous legacy for generations to come.
My thoughts go to his friends and family.

Weird cloud formations as seen over Queen Alexandra Hospital yesterday afternoon

Weird cloud formations as seen over Queen Alexandra Hospital yesterday afternoon.

Update: Apparently this kind of formation is known as Mammatus, also known as mammatocumulus (meaning “mammary cloud” or “breast cloud”), is a meteorological term applied to a cellular pattern of pouches hanging underneath the base of a cloud. The name mammatus is derived from the Latin mamma (meaning “udder” or “breast”).
