New Year's Day, Sydney: 37-41 degrees C (98-105 F) depending on suburb. Too hot even for the beach.

Send icicles, please....

We're rainy and 54 degrees F (I don't remember the formula to change that over). And we expect rain for the next several days. I love rain, we get so little.

I don't have any icicles, sorry. :e2cry:

Ahhh, thanks, that's better.

It reached 43 degrees C (109 F) where I am, and was even hotter inland.

It's on days like this that one truly appreciates the inventors of the electric fan and cold beer.

Amen, brother.

September, we owe you. How 'bout some sun and surf?

Just got back from camping in West Texas- 95F during the day, and 35F at night. Whew and Brrrrr. And outside in it all- the things we do for love, eh?

Thanks Poet, but I'm loving our temps right now. Plenty of sun. It's nice and warm (shorts weather) and blue skies -- though we did get a 10-minute thunder storm with some great rain.

But I wouldn't mind you sending a little Koala my way - or maybe a baby kangaroo...they are so adorable! I promise to take good care of them and send them back home after they stay with me for a little while.

There's a cool breeze going on here my friend. Wish you could feel it..... Ahhhhh. Stick your head in the freezer and you'll know what I mean.

It's flippin' FREEZING here. East Tennessee may not get much snow, but we get a drastic range of temps. Winter time, and the wind burns your face, numbs your hands and wrecks your lips - it cuts through most any normal clothing. Summer time, and it's miserably, sweltering, sticky-hot with insane humidity. In late Spring and mid-Fall, it's is magnificent.

I am determined to find a temperate climate in which to settle down one day.

Oh, Geesh!!! I don't know if I can even reply! It's 28F with three inches of snow, I had to drive from my mom's to home(An hour drive) With my 2 kids and hubby (I was the designated driver.) at 2 am last night. I have 3 MAJOR hills to get up and did they treat the roads?
NOOOOO!
We all got home OK but my hands still have a death grip on the steering wheel!
I hate snow.:rant:

I hate driving in it, but sure love playing in it! http://bestsmileys.com/winter/10.gif

Poet, if anyone sends you some, please send some on this way. Texas needs it. (Only state I know where 'snow day' means frost on the ground.)

right now we're having lots of rain (well, not in my town) but usually what we have this time of year is FOG - lots of it and sometimes for many days in a row - and it's bad. Lots of almost-zero visibility and always there is pileups on the freeway - up to 100-plus cars. I hate fog and it runs from November through February. This year, however, we've only had maybe four or five foggy days and that was it. It's been unusually warm and mild winter. No need for coat - just a sweater on the cooler days.

Yes! Today -- mild and RAIN! ('course, our garden is fried.)

For the record, it got all the way up to 44.5 on Observatory Hill (Sydney CBD) -- that's 112 in the old money. Hottest New Year's Day ever here (no surprise there). Bushfire season is here....

Well, hopefully the rains will cool you off, and help that garden grow.
We're down into the high 70's this week. Beat's West Texas' 95's and 35's. At least here, it's somewhat consistant. You can put on shorts and keep them on.

Here's snow, and icicles, and nice windy weather all in one go to cool you down. This is where I live (up a mile-long track) in the Peak District, in the UK. We get snow off and on from November to April, often feet deep. This was MArch, a few years ago. Feel any better yet?

That's beautiful, OH! Over here we're dealing with severe drought and firestorms. Whole towns have even been wiped out:

My New Year's Day was right around 70 degrees, which is very unseasonably warm, I don't think I've ever had a New Year's that warm before. Just two weeks before we had around 5 inches of snow.

Be careful what you asked for, Poet...

playing in the snow is fun http://photobucket.com/albums/c34/JAlpha/th_WESnowman05FrostyHL.gif (http://photobucket.com/albums/c34/JAlpha/?action=view&current=WESnowman05FrostyHL.gif) but

now you'll have to shovel http://photobucket.com/albums/c34/JAlpha/th_WEShovelingsnow02.gif (http://photobucket.com/albums/c34/JAlpha/?action=view&current=WEShovelingsnow02.gif) and plow http://photobucket.com/albums/c34/JAlpha/th_WESnowplow02.gif (http://photobucket.com/albums/c34/JAlpha/?action=view&current=WESnowplow02.gif) too.

Hey pb...

We're almost neighbors! I'm in Weatherford, where we haven't had any big blazes yet, but the counties on either side both did yesterday.

Typical March day, where I live. Typical October, November, December, January, February and April day, too. Except for the sunlight part, that is.

I'd settle for iceberg lettuce. And THAT is sayin' something, because I hate the stuff.

We're having a godawful winter! Been in the mid-to upper 30s for a week now. All the snow we had for Christmas is long gone and we're just getting rain and dweary skies.
