Unusually warm here- 42F and raining. It started out as a bit of snow this morning and developed into rain.

The cold storm that is about to sweep across the US reminds me of what we endured in Alaska a couple of weeks ago. Not so much snow bit heavy winds and zero temperatures. It was wicked, especially this building I live in is drafty and the furnace couldn't keep up. At least, the power didn't go out- we'd have had to vacate.

Watchng the developments with my heart in my mouth- stay safe and warm, everybody.

And in Australia, get the heck out of Dodge!

I'm halfway across the country, but we are expecting some sidelash - maybe some rain and a bit of light blow ...

It is now looking as being a cat 5 + (300 Kph winds and maybe stronger) when it hits Innisfail (about 100 years ago they had a big one with over 5 metres storm surge) and they are talking about cat 2 and cat 3 effects on nearby towns (in Aussie scales!) along the coast.

Willis Island is about to evacuate the 3 weather guys - it will pass over them RSN, and the auto instruments are expected to give interesting readings - till they break ... the effects are expected to last nearly 24 hours from when the wind starts, to fade off. Up to a metre total rainfall in many areas.

Sharing Patsy's weather in the south west of England. It's 2.58pm and -1 degree C. Looks bleak and grey, tho the cloud cover is only thin. There was still frost on top of the hedge at 10.30 this morning.

Sandra, I remember those unpleasant humid summer nights in Sydney, and I don't miss them at all. At least here we can be warm inside with the central heating, and turn it down a bit at night and be very comfortable. Of course we have to put on layers of clothes to go outside, which tends to keep us indoors a lot and can lead to feelings of cabin fever. I'm looking forward to when spring comes - my first spring on this side of the world!

We've only had several decent snowstorms and they didn't last long... a day and a half was the longest. We are doing very well so far this winter. I can still see over the snowbank on my front lawn.

"No sign of global warming"

Queensland's 'Salad Bowl' is now officially considered destroyed in the floods in the Lockyer Valley (where the 'inland tsunami' went thru). Dairying, growing plants in the ground, etc, will take up to a decade to get back to the capability that previously existed.

We have had several '1 in a 100 year critical events' in a few months here, there definitely has been a change/blip in the normal cycle of the last 250 years of documented occupation. The Brisbane River was forecast that 1974 was a 1 in 100 year e\vent, and the Wivenhoe was constructed to take the capacity - but we had twice the rain of 1974, so it was almost overtopped (it wasn't because it was managed properly), but it had to start releases before all the .

Those who wish to deny something will never learn - but it's a good idea to be prudent ...

The weather here is pretty much the same as it has always been: Hot in the Summer, cold in the Winter, varialbe tending warm in the Spring and variable tending colder in the Fall. No sign of global warming, no indication that the next ice-age is on the way. Some Summers are hotter than others and some winters colder, some Springs and Falls are shorter than others, some longer. Some days set records for hot or cold, for wind, fog, total rainfall and ocasional snow.

The planet is fine, the axial tilt will insure the seasons will continue. This old world has survived astroidal and meteoric bambrdments, ice-ages, extended periods of volcanism on a global scale, overpopulations and hardly any life at all. The planet is fine but we human are what is in danger. We are in danger from ourselves and our selfishness and ignorance. If global warming is a fiction, so what? We need to live as though it were a fact because the human animal cannot survive long in its waste output. We need to become very intelligent about our actions and their consequences. We need to see that our lives are inextricably bound up in the environment as it is. Health to the environment is health to Mankind.

"When there is a long drought and then heavy rains causing floods- is there an impact on the drought? Do things green up and grow? Or does flooding strip the topsoil?"

The simple answer is "Depends".

While some areas right under the biggest flood flow force will have a degree of stripping, when the flow slows a bit, it starts to dump the spoil. As soon as the water clears, things green up - grass will grow several inches in a few days, especially with the sun out. So there may be patches of erosion among lush plant growth.

Drought will strip topsoil far more devastatingly, as there is nothing to hold the soil.

Millions of years of evolution here have caused plants and animals to cope - West Australia regularly runs 'Flower Tours' to show the regrowth after drought breaking rain - you would not believe the ravishing solid spread of intermixed color where a week before there was only dry sandy soil. Animals appear from apparently nowhere (where they all hide is still not really understood), especially small ones.

Kangaroos can have a joey at foot, one in the pouch, and one in the womb. When it rains, the one in the pouch is kicked out, she gives birth, then immediately breeds. The one in the womb can go into stasis for quite a while until conditions improve. I'm surprised that the RC Church has not adopted the roo as their emblem ...

Dumb question here, but I don't mean it to be insensitive: When there is a long drought and then heavy rains causing floods- is there an impact on the drought? Do things green up and grow? Or does flooding strip the topsoil?

In any case I recognize that it's horrendous. I have a couple of acres in a small valley in Oregon through which a creek runs. Some years it rises out of its banks and people pack their campers with emergency supplies in case they have to flee. But I've never experienced anything like what is happening in the land of Oz this year.

Here in Juneau, Alaska, it is clear and cold. 11F, with the wind chill factored in, it's minus 9. We expect a low of 5 tonight and tomorrow night a thermometer low of minus 1 is forecast.

A scary thought is of a possible area-wide power outage. Outages are fairly common in Juneau- partly because high winds are frequent. We've had some strong gusts these last 24 hours - gusts to 60 and 70 miles an hour are not uncommon - and the high wind warning has been extended to tomorrow afternoon, subject to revision.

Looks nice outside because it is sunny, but we aren't fooled - it's not as nice as it looks - a chilly windy 6 degrees. Thank goodness for central heating, although that is proving to be rather expensive - especially after the real cold snap that we had. We are looking to go round with the sealant gun to fill in any little gaps around windows etc which might be letting the cold air in and decreasing the efficiency of our heating. While it's windy is a good time to detect the leaks. The windows themselves are double glazed and look to be in good order.

Meanwhile, my heart is going out to all the Oz people affected by the terrible floods in Queensland. We are not getting enough news here, so I have to resort to the internet to get comprehensive coverage. Thanks for the links, Foolestroupe.

It's just not stopping, now Ipswich and Brisbane are being flooded - possibly higher than 1974. Still raining

7 metre high walls of water down in Lockyer valley...

Rain Map - looks like it might be clearing - see national map link - now a cyclone is winding up in Coral Sea area.... also one outside West Australia

Queensland flood disaster zone now spans 75pc of state

'Mega disaster zone' could be declared for Queensland floods

Wivenhoe at 190 per cent and rising

Not silly - it was expanded above 'optimal water supply capacity' after it was built to have a temporary flood buffer - it can go to 225% before it tops - but it is not designed to top as it will erode and possibly collapse.

Btw - arsonist bushfire in West Australia too ...

Australia - land of drought and flooding rains - we do nothing by halves!

Snow and sleet now - not a lot of accumulation in my particular little piece of the southern part of heaven, but it has been quite chilly for several days so it is sticking. Changing, probably very soon, to freezing rain. Temps predicted to rise no higher than 32 F tomorrow.

Not expecting of tons of ice and don't anticipate a power outage, but it is going to be slicker than snot for the next 18-24 hours. I'm quite intrepid about driving in snow, but 40 miles of secondary roads covered in an inch of sleet, then glazed with ice from freezing rain is not something I go out on if at all avoidable.

The creeks drained down to the valley below and created what is now being called an inland tsunami - that's where the bulk of the missing and deaths occurred.
