Extreme weather events always send people in the UK a little bit wild. It gives our national pastime – speculating about whether it’s going to rain or not – a real urgency. Forget small talk, this is the real thing.
The first big star of Storm Eunice so far is undeniably Jerry from Big Jet TV: a YouTube channel that films planes landing at Heathrow. Move over Francis Bourgeois, there’s a rival transport nut in town. But Jerry isn’t the person in his element right now. As Eunice batters the country today, loads of people have headed to Twitter to share their funniest takes. Here are some of the most hilarious tweets we found:
