Runways awash ...

Brings back memories of doing a 'FOD plod' at GIB with a fishing boat on (and I do mean on) the eastern end of the runway following a touch of weather. Couldn't see how that was going to fit in a rubbish bag, but off we went from the western end

Joke over

Well I guess we can now see what a huge tragedy it was and is.
Perhaps time for a reach into the back pocket rather than the jokes box...

Humble request

Ha ha, I'm glad someone translated it for you. But it's a funny thing, once you know the codes you can actually read it in very few seconds compared to reading the long hand. I literally can barely read the translated version.
If it's worth your while you should learn it. Reading a a bunch of METARs you can form a picture in your head of the weather in the entire country quicker than you'd believe.
