WTF...



...is going on with the weather? It was 27C (80F) here yesterday, with more of the same today, and it's early February. Even for us, that's damned hot for this time of the year. We've had about six cold days this winter, and by cold I mean below 15C (60F).

I really don't understand it and certainly hope the temperature dips again, at least a little, otherwise we're in for an intolerably long summer. Every year, the winter gets shorter and while we already enjoy a temperate climate, pretty soon there won't be any really cold days. With our very hot and humid summers, they are something we look forward to - and the chance to break out our boots and winter woolies.

Probably not what those of you who have been knee-deep or more in snow, want to hear, but too much heat isn't that much fun either.

And here we are, over here, having the first 'proper' winter for decades!
Isn't that very British of me to join in on a conversation about the weather?!

Winter's beginning to break around here. I'm glad for it - I'm fighting off an infection.

what's odd is that this year we've gotten the winters of my youth (yes, that long ago!) with multiple healthy snowstorms mingled with some cold snaps.
it's really weird.

It has been gorgeous here for the last few days, but I just noticed that a foot of snow is forecast for Friday.

Sighing. Maybe I should move to Hong Kong.
