Storm in a tea cup?

Sometimes we Brits can be a funny lot. On Sunday there were severe weather warning of gale and hurricane force winds. On Monday there were a lot of strong winds,some trees down and lots of homes without power.  Most people escaped unscathed, and as a result people have been complaining that we were warned at all. 

In 1987 we had a hurricane that wasn't forecast, in fact there is one weather forecaster who is famously remembered for denying it was coming, and there was an outcry that we were unprepared! 

Sometimes you just can't win!
