John was born in West Yorkshire in July 1952 and served for 30 years with the UK Meteorological Office before going freelance. His speech is both an autobiography and a look back at many varieties of extreme weather ranging from the atrocious winter of 1963 through to massive floods and scorching summers. John's personal involvement with the 1987 hurricane fiasco features extensively. Weaved into the overall theme are his memorable encounters with such noted figures as Tony Blair, Dickie Bird, Brian Johnston and Dick Francis.
