Last week we probably had an avarge temperature of about -5 degrees Ceclius and we got 20-30cm of snow. This night it rained, so all the snow has now gone and flooeded the nearby river. Luckily no water got into our basement as it usually does

Autum where I am is unusually warm and sunny. Very disconcerting in many ways because we live right on the edge of the rain forest and by this time we've usually had at least some rain... which softens the sponge (my term) and prepares it for the inevitable downpours. But if the rains start now... come hard and fast... I'm afraid we're in for some flooding and slides...and of course power outages. These past 3 - 4 months have been the driest on record since 1925 I think it is. Gotta luv dem greenhouse gasses. ~puts another log on the fire~ <g>

In early October, we had a couple of 90°F (around 30°C) days. Thursday this past week we had an overnight low of 27°F (-3°C or so) and a daytime high in the mid-30s (2 to 3°C). That's a drop of about 15°F per week.

Extrapolating from these figures, I predict my neighborhood will be awash in liquid nitrogen by Christmas, New Year's at the latest.

The weather here is very predictable... Well, kinda. In January, you can say we won't have any rain from the end of March until it rains sometime in October, and you'd be right, every year, and the lowest temperature we will get in that time will be rarely ever be outside of 75F and 110F. And then it'll snow about once every 2-3 years, the week of finals in December.

However, if you want to know what the weather will do in any one given day... No help here... There have been days where I woke up and it was sunny, and 80F at 7AM, then by noon it was pouring rain and 50F, then clear skies for a couple hours until early evening, then rain again for another couple hours with 40mph wind...

Here we get snow maybe once every two years, and if we're lucky it actually sticks to the ground.

Last winter my old hometown got about 1 and a half inches of snow.
It was phenomenal to say the least.
The old people were frightened, lemme tell ya.

Here in Dallas there was enough in some places to make half-grass half-snow men.

Sure not many people gave a shit, but give people a chance to talk about the weather and this is what ya get.

good ol' NC has had a nasty drought all summer, and now our usually crisp cool autumn has been turned into a slushy nasty chilly mess because Mother Nature is trying to make up for the damage already done. Ordinarily, temperatures are mild into November, and the nastiness waits until January and February to make it's appearance. I feel gypped somehow...

Isn't this the El Nino year, though? It's not a specifically strong one, though, but it's still there. The U.S. drought is the worst that it has been in a generation.. I heard that the average worldwide temperature has only risen about 1 degree since 1900, which isn't that bad, considering that's the time during which we've become so industrialized.. However, in geological terms, one degree can mean a lot.. and that is, after all, just worldwide.. It could be much higher and much lower in some areas... Just a degree or two can change how fast the world's glaciers and icebergs melt.. and in the long run, it makes a big effect. All the evidence seems to be contradicting your fear of it getting very cold.. when you should be fearing it getting extremely hot.

No, seriously.. I would not worry about it too much... People throughout time have feared such things. To me, people have a tendency to believe in mythology and the supernatural than in facts and reason... Well, I'd talk about that more and possibly the reasons why... but that's not important. Temperatures fluctuate all over the earth.. It's been that way for all time.. Temperatures are *much* more stable now than they were long ago. We're just getting out of an ice age and the glaciers are melting, not growing... It will get much warmer before it gets much colder.
Personally, I'm not concerned about it being a bit colder at times.. I much prefer it being colder. Enjoy it while you can.. by the time you get old, the average temperature might be 1 more degree higher!

Actually SUho, 36 degrees is quite common in QUeensland as they go into summer. Really, up there there is no summer, automn, winter and spring. There's just the 'dry season' and the 'wet season'. When it gets wet, it gets humid, and when it gets humid, the temperature soars.

Kaboi, you haven't missed a whole lot. For skiing, snowboarding and what not, snow is great. Pretty to look at too. But after a few days in the city, it just gets nasty and slushy and grey, and you can't wait for spring to get here again. The only reason I like snow is when it snows enough that we get to stay home from work for a day or two... That doesn't happen too too often here in the southeast US.

Of course, we did have the North Carolina equivalent of a blizzard this past January, took 4 hours to make a 70 mile trip from Charlotte to Greensboro... I never want to do that again!

Some of my cousins can up from Texas one fine winter. Man, it sure was funny seeing how they reacted to snow. One year I went down there for a few days. Got up one morning and it was around 45&deg;F. I was fine, but everyone else was freezing and wearing sweaters and all that. Wimps.

So far, this year, we haven't gotten any real snow. With the rain coming down as it has been, I suspect we'll get an ice storm one of these nights. I hope it's a good one.

People's perceptions of temperature are so interesting. I was born in New York, and when we first moved down to NC, we would be running around in November wearing shorts and T-shirts and barefoot because as far as we were concerned, it was warm. You wouldn't catch me doing that these days!

It brings to mind the other side of the coin, when I was in Israel in 1995, we noticed that the majority of people, women especially, dressed in neck to ankle layers of robes in heavy brocades and velvets and that sort of thing... I was in shorts and tank tops and sweltering!

WebS: Get some of that windshield washer concoction designed for winter. Has alcohol in it I beleive....but don't just put it all in the car.... fill a spray bottle with the stuff. By the time you spray the windshield...walk around the car spray the other windows....the front window has damn cleared it self already...and scrapping the other windows is a piece of cake...and sometimes no even needed. Works like a good thing. <bg>
