"Cast Your Fate to the Wind" - Sounds Orchestral, 1965

Driving home from work this evening, I was listening to BBC Radio 5 Live. They were talking about the possible severe weather event that's been predicted for early next week.

They referred to it as "Explosive Cyclogenesis". That's not a term I'd ever heard before, so I've looked it up. This article is probably the best I found on the web to describe what it means. Apparently, this weather phenomenon is also called a "bomb".

If the famous 1987 storm in the UK is an example of Explosive Cyclogenesis, then I have to wonder what we're in for next week....!

Have a good weekend everybody!

I heard this one too. I love the way Peter Allen doesn't pretend to understand or know about anything he doesn't understand or know about, IYSWIM.

Peter and Anita are fab presenters.

Nozza,

I should have gone into a bit more detail about Peter Allen's presentation of the term. You're absolutely right about them. Terrific team. John got me started listening to Peter & Jane originally (it WAS Jane, right?), as he's also a big fan.

Hold onto yer hat on Monday!

Janet
