On the western shores of the Caribbean, though one may read much of the night, the question of whether to go south does not arise at this time of year, there being no winter here. All here are presently enjoying typical March weather - lots of bright and warm sunlight, strong breezes and very little rain. If only I could share this with some of the less fortunate.

April may be the cruelest month, but March bites, too, in the higher regions of New Hampshire. Just 10 miles away in the valley, green shoots are poking up and crocuses are preparing to make their appearance. Here in the hills we still have over a foot of snow on the ground, ice everywhere, and the forecast for the week promises no thaw in sight. Forget February, I dream of heading South for the months of March and April. Now is when I'm sick of winter!

In coastal SOuthern Caqlifornia the sea-mist rises early in the morning and crawls down the streets, hangs from trees and flowers, and makes everything look ghostly and intimate like a lover's sleeping breath. The trees look like explosions of fog and the streets only crawl if there is any traffic at all.

By nine AM, the mists have been banished by the sturdy persuasions of a rising sun, the skies clear away to a pristine blue dotted with white fluff, and the city bustles to life. The temperature climbs from 55 degrees F at sunrise to 75 degrees in short order, over-coats and sweaters are tossed into the back seats of cars, dogs come out to romp and mark their turf on the grassy fields and canyon paths, and the world is blessed with a golden, benevolent warmth that lasts until sundown.

Then the mists start to move in again, wisping through the dark streets and across the busy highways as people head for home after a day of busy productive work, one assumes. No guarantees, of course. The weather does not care whether you've been productive or not.

The clouds roll in, mist again covers the valleys, and night falls in peace on a comfortable land. Occasionally Orion, a few planets, and the inconstant moon peer through the mist to reassure the world that space has not gone awry. Only the foolish and naive are reassured, but the gesture is always appreciated.

It was to have arrived at 4:00 this morning and to last until 7:00 tonight- well, it *is* snowing but grass is still poking through so not much has accumulated.

On the other hand, the snow is fine and persistent. We'll see what happens by tonight.

Nice.

It's currently (1.30pm) 25 deg C with a light breeze blowing from the south west. Other parts of Oz are still having unseasonably hot and humid weather but here in the north west of New South Wales summer is winding down. Trees are beginning to show signs of the coming autumn with fading colours, and the vine - could be an ornamental grape - covering a corner of the fence round a local football ground is already red and bronze! Nights are much cooler than just a few weeks ago so sleeping is easier.

Monday forecast is it will fall 3 degrees overnight & get up to 27. The rest of the week will be around 28 most day, which of course means high humidity.

We have some nasty hot weather heading our way from the south & south west of the country.

The part of RI where I live dodged the bullet, too. We had mostly rain with only a thin coating of wet snow Friday morning. Some other parts of the state got more, but I think most areas were in the 3-inch zone with a few parts getting slightly more. If it had all been snow, we would have been in much worse shape. And while there were strong winds, I haven't heard anything about power outages. I guess from Hurricane Sandy until now, the damage to power lines had already been done. The trees had already fallen and the lines had already been repaired.

from the local paper: Mini tornadoes hit hundreds of homes across Sydney and the Illawarra region overnight, there is flooding across NSW. One resident of north Sydney's Kirribilli described seeing a "funnel cloud" that struck just after midnight, bringing down trees in the Willoughby Street area, damaging cars and ripping off the roof of the Kirribilli Sailing Club. The wind "sounded like a freight train," and the cloud was between 50-100m wide.

It's raining in Sydney. Thunderstorms, heavy soaking saturating constant rain. The cat has come in, wet, and the skies are just pouring bucketloads of rain.

Flood warnings in NSW, two flood related deaths already, and sheets of rain pouring across the state.

And, thinking of rain..

My Country

The love of field and coppice
Of green and shaded lanes,
Of ordered woods and gardens
Is running in your veins.
Strong love of grey-blue distance,
Brown streams and soft, dim skies
I know, but cannot share it,
My love is otherwise.

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me!

The stark white ring-barked forests,
All tragic to the moon,
The sapphire-misted mountains,
The hot gold hush of noon,
Green tangle of the brushes
Where lithe lianas coil,
And orchids deck the tree-tops,
And ferns the warm dark soil.

Core of my heart, my country!
Her pitiless blue sky,
When, sick at heart, around us
We see the cattle die
But then the grey clouds gather,
And we can bless again
The drumming of an army,
The steady soaking rain.

Core of my heart, my country!
Land of the rainbow gold,
For flood and fire and famine
She pays us back threefold.
Over the thirsty paddocks,
Watch, after many days,
The filmy veil of greenness
That thickens as we gaze ...

An opal-hearted country,
A wilful, lavish land
All you who have not loved her,
You will not understand
though Earth holds many splendours,
Wherever I may die,
I know to what brown country
My homing thoughts will fly.
