Get the wuther mug.
Adjective. Old English.
A word used to characterize an area where the wind blows so strongly that it makes a terrifying roaring sound.
Used mainly in the 19th century to describe the windy conditions of the weather in England.
Made famous by the classic novel by Emily Brontë, 'Wuthering Heights'. The hostile Yorkshire Moors in the early 19th century provide the setting for the novel. 'Wuthering Heights' is the name of a house on these moors and it is named after the wild weather often experienced in what is today known as 'Brontë Country'.
Person A "It's fair blowing a gail out there."
Person B "Yes, do you that that roraing sound? The wind is blowing so hard, it's wuthering."

The feeling that follows the sudden obliteration of expectation. Typically occurs when you've received news that the life you expected to live in the future is no longer possible. It is a negative feeling when the change feels like a loss, not a gain. It could be caused by a permanent illness or loss of ability. It could be a drastic change in your circumstances, possessions, or expectation of safety. It can be personal or collective. A disorientation like being caught in a wuthering wind.

"From the moment I realised this paralysis was permanent, I've been overwhelmed with wuthering. Nothing is ever going to be the same again, and I still can't imagine my future."

Also, the time period where this feeling dominates. "Her whole family died in a car accident when she was eight, and so she entered a time of wuthering."

Also a very good song by Kate Bush. Reached number one in the charts for a month in 1978. Kate's screeching and wailing was what made the song so good and original =-)
Ooh! Let me have it! let me grab your soul away!

1: A classic (and mind numbingly boring) novel.

2: A brilliant song released by Kate Bush.

But less commonly known as the cockney rhyming slang (a British but specifically London language originally created by prisoners as a way to talk without theyre messeges being interpreted by the prison officers or the filth/the old bill) used to describe tights/pantyhose

....allthough if you are living in a country that describes tights as pantyhose then this rhyming slang will not make sense due to the fact that it does not rhyme....rendering this entire description pointless...but who cares, I hate the bloody yanks anyway.
