The weather has been fairly interesting over the past few weeks and over the Xmas/New Year holidays in particular. When that’s the case someone has to stand up in front of the cameras and tell us about what is to come hopefully with something approaching some sort of accuracy.
In Scotland we have just the person. Judith Ralston. Her job is indeed to provide an idea of how the weather may behave over a 2-3 day period and of course to highlight unpleasant weather which may be a bit testing.
Judith wasn’t always a weather presenter; she was originally a singer (maybe a singer in a rock and roll band) who trod the boards around Scotland. She admitted as much just the other day when a news item covered the temporary closure of a theatre in Perth. She had at one time or another sang there although it was apparently a different life away.
I’ve written hundreds of blogs and I’ve been lucky enough to attract thousands of visitors. The most popular blogs on my site are the Judith Ralston Blogs. There is rarely a day goes by that someone or someones haven’t looked at one of the Judith Ralston’s blogs.
Things have changed for Judith. She’s now had twins and she’s also lost a bit of weight and her wardrobe has perhaps altered a bit also. She used to be known to some “wags” as Miss Whiplash! Goodness…
When she is the chosen one for doing the weather she can be a vision in blue, red, black, black and white although not all at the same time thank goodness. Her shoes can sometimes be making a point. They are flamboyant.
Her shoes state that she is not just a weather presenter. They shout that there is more to Judith than just the weather. They hint that there is more. Sophistication. Fun. Daring.
Perhaps BBC Scotland should make a few suggestions for Judith to consider? Perhaps they might suggest that as the weather she is informing the audience about gets wilder perhaps her hairstyle should reflect this and become increasingly wild!
Perhaps they should also suggest that as the temperature rises so do the height of her heels? Perhaps if there are a number of weather warnings she should appear more severe and strict teacher looking? Just so we pay attention of course.
I could go on but I shan’t.
For the weather in Scotland there is no alternative to Judith.
