    Default So 31 C ....

    And I decide to clean the gutters because it's been 8 months since I last did it.
    Talk about cat on a hot tin roof.
    Yep can hear the rocks rattlin' in my head. Hmmm... Scotch on the rocks sounds good now I think of it.

    Been hearing on the news that it has been unusually hot in OZ lately. They were quoting 50C in Sydney the other day and friends up in Brisbane had said something about 48C the other day too. When you get extreme temps like that it is just plain nasty. Enjoy your well deserved Scotch on the rocks.

    Very hot and very cold are the two weather conditions that I choose to avoid as much as possible. Good luck with the gutter cleaning, although if it is that warm you likely are not goind to be using them right away.

    Man we must have had a couple of inches in one hour that morning which is what spurred me to action. It tricked me to thinking it was gonna be a cool day

    Oh my.
    What hardship you guys down there must endure...

    Woke up to -24C this morning myself. That is -11F.

    I do love our four seasons, but on days like this I'm contemplating a condo in Spain....

    We just got out of two weeks of -20 to -30, got a huge snowstorm coming tomorrow, and then right back into the freezer.
    I'll take that over 31c any time.
    It got up to 0c yesterday and I was working outside in a t-shirt.

    Being a Norwegian one would think I'd be used to the cold by now, but it actually gets worse every year.
    Unlike you, Eric, I'll take heat over cold any day

    Same type of weather here for the last 2 weeks. Woke up this morning to 0C temps but but a snowfall warning starting tonight lasting till tomorrow. May start off as freezing rain, lovely. Then it is back to the deep freeze.

    Birnardo is right, even though I grew up with these kinds of winter conditions it does not get any easier the older you get. Like RezDog I could do without the extremes of heat and cold.

    Well, I was going to complain, but, all this makes my " +15 F " look pretty lame . . . . . .
