Weather leaves us lost for words

The extreme weather is giving headline writers a challenge. They usually like their alliteratives – Miserable Monday! Floody Friday! Saturated Saturday! Sodden Sunday! Wet Wednesday! Terrible Tuesday!

Unfortunately last week, some of the worst weather was on Thursday and it's very hard to alliterate anything disaster-ish with Thursday. Thunderous Thursday? Great, except it didn't thunder. Threatening Thursday?

Again, nice, but it didn't just threaten, it actually happened. And they're in danger of going overboard too soon. Doesn't look like the rain's stopping anytime soon, so watch out for a raft of movie title style headers – Miserable Monday II – The Nightmare Continues!
