Allow me to introduce myself
« on: Oct 25, 2004, 19:08 »
Hello,

My name is Osbourne One Nil. Some of you may know me as perhaps the most respected member of Net Weather whose views are eagerly anticipated by whole forum. Most of you however, probably don't.

I've joined here because I'm hoping to be able to get a more regionalised view on this winter's weather, rather than the southern-biased view that net-weather tends to have, where Manchester is considered the far north.

I live just outside Appleby in Cumbria which may, on the face of it, seem to be in the northwest, but I certainly feel more part of the north-east than north-west. I've also enjoyed comparing Paul Tall's positively balmy weather conditions in Newton Aycliffe in winters past, so I hope to do more of the same.

That's enough from me. I hope to learn lots!

Yours

OON.

Hi there OON, your posts are very familiar to me, both from the Net Weather forum as well as the BBC weather site. It's nice to have anyone new joining the board to be honest, but we need people who'll post and not just sit in the background and I think you certainly fit the bill there.  :)

As you say, the folks at NW think that Manchester is the North and we've had a sly dig at them there. You'll find that Paul Tall is a member here also, but he's known as Tall Paul. He only lives about 5 miles south of me and it's in the town that I work in, so I can personally vouch for much of the stuff he talks about.

Anyhow, enjoy yourself and if you know of any other Northern weather nuts (or just Northern nuts) that might want to join us please feel free to tell them about the North East Forum.
