Well....after 2 years of 'less than normal rainfall', we have had 2 months of 'more than normal rainfall'.





Doesn't seem that long ago that we were 'melting' in a heatwave .



It's wet and windy on the south coast of England today....what's it like where you are ???



If the weather's horrible where you are.....do you stay indoors and if so what do you get up to ?

Wet and windy all night here, Bez. But quite a pleasant morning now :-6

Hi Esme!! And welcome to the Garden. I've been seeing reports of ice storms in the American midwest. And my friend Okie, says OKC got 8 inches of snow. WOW. Here in Australia we are in summer and well into a long drought. Lovely sunny day today, actually, not too hot.

Temperature dropped something like 40 degrees a couple of days ago. We finally pulled the winter clothes out of storage.

:( Yeah, the temperature dropped yesterday, I'm in thermals again..................



Bez, I still go outside for my daily walk, unless it is an absolutely downpour. I must go outside, it is hard to stay indoors all day long. I'll walk this afternoon, it will be maybe 40 by then. But to see the sun and the clouds in the sky, is lovely. The sun will not be warm enough to feel on my face, but I will still see it.:-6

Been an evil night here, roads are closed because of fallen trees, the promenade is covered in seaweed. Road works and temporary traffic lights that were on the prom have all been blown over. I think the wind may be calming down finally.

Well it's still blowing a gale here Chonsi, but at least the sun is coming out every now and then.

It's cool here, about 40 this morning and gonna warm up to about 70 this afternoon.

We are supposed to have a front come in next week that's gonna freeze our buns. But according to the weather channel, it doesn't look as if that's gonna happen.

It's a balmy 19f/-7c here this morning with 7 inches of snow on the ground and more coming tomorrow. It's starting out like a typical winter so far. :wah: Still, if you bundle up it's nice to go for a walk in. Even this time of year I don't like to miss my daily walk. Of course if the temps get down around zero or like last week the windchill goes to minus temps, then I stay indoors by the fire. :D

Weather here has just been very cold and very windy. No rain and very little sun, certainly feels like Winter all right, and you can see people gradually starting to wear gloves and scarves, and not too mention catching a cold, (which has already happened to me!)

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow



Oh the weather outside is frightful

But the fire is so delightful

And since we've no place to go

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!



It doesn't show signs of stopping

And I've bought some corn for popping

The lights are turned way down low

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!



When we finally kissgoodnight

How I'll hate going out in the storm!

But if you'll really hold me tight

All the way home I'll be warm



The fire is slowly dying

And, my dear, we're still goodbying

But as long as you love me so

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Well, it rained all night and most of the morning. Now the trees are falling in the road and taking power lines with them.

People are hydroplaning off the road and into ditches.

Can you imagine what would happened if it snowed? People here can't drive in the rain, the snow just freaks them out. They look like some caveman who just discovered shoes or something.

Anyhoo, its probably in the mid to high 60's. Way too warm for this time of year. I WANT SOME COLD WEATHER!
