The final countdown

Did you know that you can tweet the @metoffice for a forecast for your location? Here’s what they said for today over the Northcott:

@TEDxExeter Hi. The forecast is for frequent heavy showers with a cold Ely wind. 8°C ^JLH 6:49pm – 26 Mar 14

My experience cycling here was grey, drizzle, cold wind. So the forecast, if not the weather, isn’t bad so far.

Registration is open downstairs, and I can imagine that there’s a real buzz building. But it’s the calm before the storm in the auditorium. The lighting is set. We’re holding one final speaker rehearsal, of Sonia Livingstone, who couldn’t be with us yesterday.
