So Canberra and Burlington have the same temperature - amazing.




Ridiculous, isn't it? My husband has named this non-season we are having 'Spummer' - a couple of weeks ago I was wandering around in shorts and a singlet (please don't dwell on that image! ) thinking about turning the fan on. Hate it a lot - pick a season and stick to it already!

After all that white stuff last weekend, it is absolutely pouring rain here today.

It's more horrible if it's in Dallas, ren. I can tell you that.

Well today is the first day of summer, and it looks like someone's taken it literally, as the temp is about 12 degrees higher than yesterday (that would be celcius). I have to say that if it would stay like this (around 25C) then I would be happy, but it's more likely that we'll start climbing soon. I could certainly do without the number of 40+ days we've had the last couple of years though...

And I'd just like to congratulate all of us - FT folk can even make talking about the weather interesting!

The first official day of winter here isn't until Dec 21st. But it's shown it's ugly head long before that!

Hmm, and now we're back to "Spummer", with a huge storm and temps back to low teens...really, it's all very rude!

I'm going to be a party pooper and say that I'm glad we've gotten no snow yet. I hate the stuff, except for a light dusting on Christmas Eve..then it can go away. We've been lucky here on the east coast as it's been incredibly mild for this time of year. 10-12 degrees today and some rain. I'll take it!

Well we're hovering right around 0, have that light dusting of snow (with more promised) and very high winds.
Actually it sounds an awful lot like last weekend. Hard to believe that we had torrential rain and temperatures hitting double digits in between!

You cannot please everyone at the time, or can you? Dubai, as you know, tends to be a rather warm place with temperatures reaching well above 40C in summer. They now have a ski resort, they are making snow. See the article here

I guess that makes everyone happy, the sun lovers and the winter sports fanatics.

Not looking forward to the icy, snowy mess we are expected to have here later today. It's just shy of 3am and nothing yet, but by 3pm it will be a different story, starting as ice then changing to 1-4" of slushy snow. Yuck! (Especially with drivers not used to this kind of weather)

I went to get some warm woollies from the shops today to prepare me for the agonies of 17th December... next step is the boots.

Might I recommend zip up boots in dark brown suede, I think they might suit you.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, it is steamy hot. Sydney got 39C today (about 101F), with very hot winds, and humidity hovering around 85%. The predicted thunderstorm did not eventuate...

This time last week, it was only about 19C.. welcome to spring in Sydney-town.

Bah fooey! We don't have any white stuff either, it was just that particular day and as it is so rare here, worth a mention. Having said that, it is cold, well I think it is cold. 8.8C at present.

We're at -12 celcius right now, but it might warm up to -7 by the end of the day.
No fluffy white stuff, although my family, who lives 2 hours away, got a couple of feet of the stuff on the weekend.

Neither do we anymore YAY! And we're back to Stage II water restrictions which meant we could fill our new pond, and the birds get to bathe. Now if I could just convince Ed he's allowed to shower more than once a week...

I sure do! We've had 18.6" of rain for the year, and are supposed to have 35.6" in that amount of time.

A skim of snow on the ground here, just enough to make it look pretty - maybe two or three inches. Gettng cold, though - temp down to minus 25 C last night, up to minus 14 just now, with no wind, so it's actually very nice out.

We've got about 2 inches on the ground here, now, accumulating over the last week with no melt. It's been pretty cold except when it snows. Last night it was -12 F (wind chill), which translates to -25 C or so. That's with a 10-20mph north wind. The wind died down a little, though, so now it's not quite as cold. Roughly -13 C, but feels like -20 C with the light wind. And more snow on the way. Scratch that, I just looked out the window. It's snowing now.

Skim?? Round here (down south!) 2 or 3 inches counts as 'deep'! Enough to close schools and cause general chaos.
