This is some of the best footage I have seen.
There is another meaning. Google it.Is 'ponce' a noun for anything in the US? Just curious.
You and your friend are either both lying or spend too much time consuming fake news. http://www.factcheck.org/2017/10/puerto-rican-teamsters-stories-bogus/I told him that I had heard that the trucker's union had told the truck drivers on the island not to go back to work. He said that that was true.
He said that the government asked truckers to contact them directly if they wanted work, bypassing the union all together.
I think they're saying ex since it will technically be an extratropical cyclone (cold core) rather than a tropical cyclone (warm core).Yeh, I saw this on the BBC News this morning - a somewhat inappropriately jolly weather forecaster cheerfully declared that the UK might see a little disruption thanks to an 'ex-hurricane' on Monday...
I don't know about you, but that doesn't look like no ex-hurricane to me!
Has this happened often? Looking around on the internet seems to suggest a hurricane hitting the Isles is fairly rare, but I'm not really sure what happens once a hurricane leaves the US and heads back to sea.
The UK gets a couple wind storms every year but they're nowhere near as strong as a hurricane. It's pretty rare for extratropical cyclones to hit the British Isles, usually they get absorbed into other systems and/or pass further north, so while we'll feel the effect of these systems it's very rare for them to even resemble a tropical cyclone. There was a hurricane-like storm which hit the south of England in 1987 which is pretty famous, but the fact that a storm that hit 30 years ago is still remembered as a very unusual event shows the frequency of this sort of thing.Has this happened often?

To be fair, I think what he said was that it wasn't going to be a hurricane, which was technically true. However, it was presented in such a way that most people interpreted it as a statement of how serious the storm would be rather than a statement about the meteorological nature of the storm.Also Michael Fish saying on the Weather it would be normal didn't help either.
