That sounds perfect. Have you got a spare room? |

It's a balmy 55 degrees in late evening in January, very weird for this time of year in this part of the world!|

Funny how it depends on where you are - Lesley's horrid icy cold is our lovely easy winter...|

We hit 74 yesterday and 65 today.|

37c here today. Last week, we had 39, 41, 41, 40 and 38.|
I was planning a move to Antarctica !

Agony, you're telepathic. I was thinking as I typed, Canadians (and others) will laugh at the idea that -3C is bone-chillingly miserable. :( |
Tezza, if Antarctica's full, you could always pop over to Bedford to cool off.

Ah, but we're prepared for it - our houses are well insulated, everyone owns the right clothes. And, of course, as we say so famously around here - it's a dry cold.|

True: for a nation that's swamped the world with inventions, we don't seem to be very good at planning. We can't even cope with leaves on railway lines - and the traffic everywhere stops dead at the first drop of rain. *sigh*|

Thanks Lesley. May I bring my cows please ? And the horses..and the dogs ? We are all feeling the heat a bit.. last night was one of the most unpleasant nights we have had in a while.. temp never fell below 21.. our part of the world is noted for its wonderful cooling evening breeze, the "Albany Doctor"... but the doctor failed to arrive last night. Cooler today thogh, I hope !|

Come one, come all! If the house isn't big enough, the garden will be. |

Hard to believe a year ago we got 28" of snow. 50F today in Northern Illinois.|

Extremely warm temperatures here, and supposed to continue for a couple of more days. Loving it! Sometimes, though, we get our coldest weather in February, or even March, so we're not out of the woods yet. But I'm going to enjoy it while it's here.|

It was 49 here today.|
Reply #193. Feb 01 12, 9:23 PM
Today it was low 50's. Tomorrow it will be low 40's with rain/snow and Friday it will be highs in the 20's. I love Colorado.|

I'm finally being converted to C here as they've almost abandoned the dual readings we always used to have, so straddling 0 today and decided however sunny it was better not to go out for my usual walk in it.|

32F for a high today in Minnesota. Supposed to be in the 40s the next few days though, great temps for early February here. |

"That sounds perfect. Have you got a spare room?" |
Yep, converted two smallish rooms into one big one. New bathroom down the hall from it too.

Upper 50's and 60's and sunny all week. Very mild for January/February. Not complaining!!|
Reply #198. Feb 03 12, 8:16 AM
Hope you aren't snowed in today, Rayven! Dave, I am sorry to hear you have gone metric. That's the final stage in the decline of a civilization. It looks like another beautiful day here, with highs in the 50s.|

David, stop me if you remember this, but someone/thing (the Beeb?) ran a competition when it was first inflicted upon us, for a good way to make sense of the new figures. |
Entries varied from twenty-line poems to reminders of the mathematical formula, but this was the winner:
"Five and ten and twenty-one; Winter, Spring and Summer sun."
It helps, but nothing in C has the same ring as "Oy, it's going to be in the eighties."
