A Chilly Evening


Brrrr, do you feel that cold breeze.  Maybe I'm imagining it but it seems to feel much colder at high tide.
The Thames is a tidal river, that rises and falls around 7 metres.  The incoming tide comes in at nearly twice the speed of the outgoing tide which takes between 6 and 9 hours.  A bit of trivia that has nothing to do with me feeling cold, but it might help you win a pub quiz contest.

I probably wouldn't be able to sit there for very long. I'm cold right now and it's 60 degrees outside.

It's a question of remembering these facts when you need them Mo ☺

I imagine the changing of the tides also has an influence on air currents down near the surface.

I didn't realize the tide was so high!

In is faster than out, in is faster than out. Someone had better ask me pretty soon before I forget.
