Chicago's been having some crazy weather. Just a few days ago it was freezing and now it's like Spring (around 50 degrees or so.) We had some snow, but it's just about gone. I sincerely hope we don't get anymore.

What's it like out there by you?

Vegas weather. One day its blistering hot, the next is frigid. With winds that sheer through all clothing.

Sablet weather - I think brisk with touches of brrrr would cover it, today. I hear Australia's been having an horrific time weather-wise, though...

The weather in Edinburgh? Wet and dull with strong winds forecasted for the next few days.

Beats last week though which was pretty bad snow which then turned to ice which made the city an ice-rink for a few days.

Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)

Typical western Oregon weather--drizzly. And that's a blessing, since we had freezing fog in the middle of the month.

Nothing out of the ordinary here on the wet coast (not a typo) of North America.

JJ's right, nothing new, but UGH! All day, the fine precipitation that can't be called rain but is certain to leave a slick of water over every surface. Umbrellas, coats, hoods--all hopeless to provide any protection. And if you wear glasses, you can forget any opportunity to actually SEE out of them. And don't get me started on the effects on hair. --okay, rant over--

I'm up to my shins in tapioca.

It was quite a surprise.

Overcast and kind of cool. I even turned my fan off and went back to bed to warm up a bit. Twas nice. Doesn't feel like summer.

The East coast of Australia, however, has been having flooding and storms and all sorts.

I'm about forty miles downriver (north) of Siri, so same here today.

I love rainy Oregon, even when I worked outside. Yep, drizzle beats freezing fog any day.
