That's why now every gust of wind needs to be hyped up to the max and milked for every news column and radio/tv bulletin it's worth.
Good post.

Also you have big mouths like that Conor Faughnan from AA roadwatch who love all they hype and overexxageration and who are probably spurring all of this on in the background.

Exactly, the weather has a big effect on those of us living in the sticks too, coastal flooding, thick fog, ice/snow, strong winds etc, traveling can be quite hazardous in these conditions and weather reports are vital to us.

Ya can't bate a good walk near the coast or in the woods when there's a good wind raging, quite invigorating.

I can't see the problem naming these things either, it's just a bit of banter.
