Chunk of the day: adverse weather conditions
Over recent days, the news has been full of dire warnings. We’ve been urged to batten down the hatches and prepare to be hit hard by what’s being called the Beast from the East! Quite what the former heavyweight boxing champion of the world, Wladimir Klitschko, would make of the fact that he seems to have lost his nickname to a cold front that has swept in from Siberia is anyone’s guess, but one thing’s for sure: when it comes to weather, it doesn’t take much of a punch to bring Britain to its knees!
Помогите, пожалуйста, перевести предложение, начинающееся со слова Quite и следующие 3 строчки с хвостиком до слова but. Общий смысл смутно понятен, но шутка ускользает и красивый перевод не получается.
