It seems the right-wing press’ power of hyperbole has infiltrated the Met Office. We are apparently in the grip of a “Weather Bomb”? No, me neither.
I reckon, what they might actually mean is that it’s going to be dead cold for a bit. About as unremarkable at the moment as Russell Brand getting angry in public.
Aside from the usual cold weather associations of mass-scale salt proliferation and people moaning about their heating bill we also get to put on a massive coat. And what excuse does this “Weather Bomb” give you? The chance to get a new cold weather beater and play arctic explorer on your lunchtime stroll to Greggs.
