Storm Dennis will be arriving in the Swindon area around 2pm on Saturday (just in time for Scunny game), with torrential rain and gusts up to 60mph.

Wouldn't it be nice to play a game that's not influenced by the wind!

Yes indeed. Even tonight is going to be windy, with a wind chill of minus 3 (can't wait!)

Still, the windy season is due to finish by about the 26th April, oh last match of the season is the 25th April, ah well. Looks like we better get used to playing in windy conditions then!

The wind is quite often a factor at The (ie our) County Ground.

Exeter jibes aside, I have often been left wondering why we do not seem to take advantage of its quirks which so often seem to leave us as nonplussed as the opposition.

ie more distance shooting or alternatively using a swirl or headwind with crosses that tease the opposing keeper or punts forward that tease defenders and hold up for a second, oncoming attacker arriving at pace.

It really wasn't that windy at Carlisle.

It became pretty much a fast flowing river on my street in a matter of mins. The only thing that stopped us flooding was that we live on a hill. Apparently parts of Scotland are going to get another dollop of snow (on top of ice) over night tonight. Not much your kilt and clan can do about that. Or even grit for that matter!

Sake! Every game i've been to this season seems to be played during ridiculous conditions.

Yes, the rain and wind came heavy on Sunday. Monday the snow hit the Midlands quite heavy. Wasn't sustained but there was a good dollop in a short space of time.
