No, Jack, not NZ......even though I'm one-quarter Kiwi.

We live in Tamworth, north-western New South Wales, Oz. Far enough inland that we miss out on coastal humidity, but not so far outback that it's unrelentingly hot.

Today's forecast: 100% chance of rain (and very welcome it will be too, we're still recovering from drought) and 21 deg C, a warm temperature for winter. Our long term July average maximum temperature is 16.3 deg C.

I can. It would be a change for the better.

Moncton, NB.ca has been in the high 20s with Humidex in the high 30s but we have had enough of a breeze most days that allowed Mum to sit in the shade. Takes me as long as six beers to mow both lawns - two front and two back lawns.

Yesterday morning was the coldest morning of the year so far, minus 3.8 deg C with a heavy frost. It was very pretty and white, but it was very cold too!

I truly can't imagine what it would like to live in a climate which gets several feet of snow each winter. I feel the cold, but I don't mind winter - you can always add another layer or two but in summer there are limits as to what can be removed, in public at least - however compared to some parts of the world our winters are quite mild.

Positively benign, in fact.

I am in Rijeka, in Croatia at the top end of the Adriatic. We've got the "bura", the cold north wind off the Alps that the north of Dalmatia sometimes gets, but not usually this cold and this windy at this time of year. It's warmer in Edinburgh, and rather disappointing after Budapest where the 30C+ heat had most of the younger Hungarian women sashaying down the street in very brief hotpants or what looked like French knickers.

Lightning must have struck very close to our house while we were away at our grand-daughter's birthday party yesterday. It tripped a bunch of circuit breakers and ground fault circuit interrupters, blew about a dozen light bulbs, and blew the fuse in one of my potter's wheels. Amazingly, nothing with integrated circuitry got blasted. Computer, TV, DVD player, and computer-controlled pottery kilns are all fine.

It was cool and comfortable at the New Bedford Folk Festival today, but it looks like it'll rain there tomorrow. The two largest stages are indoors at the New Bedford Whaling Museum and the Zeiterion Theater, the others, except for the smallest one, are under tents. Attendance will probably be down, so most people should be able to get seats indoors or inside the tents. It may be tough for the vendors, though.

video and lyrics - At the Drop of a Hat

Both:         January brings the snow,
        Makes your feet and fingers glow.
        
        February's ice and sleet,
        Freeze the toes right off your feet.
        
        Welcome, March, with wint'ry wind,
        Would thou wert not so unkind.
        
        April brings the sweet spring showers,
        On and on for hours and hours.
        
        Farmers fear unkindly May,
        Frost by night and hail by day.
        
        June just rains and never stops,
        Thirty days and spoils the crops.
        
        In July the sun is hot,
Flanders:         Is it shining?
Swann:         No it's not!
        
Both:         August, cold and dank and wet,
        Brings more rain than any yet.
        
        Bleak September's mist and mud,
        Is enough to chill the blood.
        
        Then October adds a gale,
        Wind and slush and rain and hail.
        
        Dark November brings the fog,
        Should not do it to a dog.
        
        Freezing wet December, then...
        Bloody January again!
        
        (January brings the snow),
        (Makes your feet and fingers glow!)

Yesterday I went to an 80th birthday lunch & carried my raincoat as it wasn't raining when I arrived, & had stopped by the time I left! Lucky me, folks who left at different times ran the gauntlet of heavy rain, & my driver had to avoid fallen branches in the carpark & on the road.

100s ordered to evacuate & 1000s call for help as wild weather intensifies check out the pics including lots of twitter pics

Over the past couple of weeks we have had our first two frosts of the year. Today is overcast, a few drops of rain fell earlier and the weekend forecast is for proper rain. As the drought has been biting hard here - Tamworth, north-western New South Wales - for a couple of years, this rain will be very welcome!

Apart from drought, and water restrictions (we aren't allowed to use town water outside for any purpose at all, no car washing, definitely no watering of gardens although some of us sneak a few occasional drops onto cherished potted plants) life here in the Small Smoke is great.

In a day in early April about ten years ago I was in Perth, WA, and the temperature reached 36. That was the hottest I'd ever been in. I beat it last year in Andalucia, southern Spain, when we had three days that reached 40. The odd thing was that all four of those days were comfortable because the humidity was very low. We Cornish denizens are unaccustomed to such things. We did have 31 in Bude a few years ago. That's about as high as it ever gets, and even that's rare.

We're going hiking in Switzerland at the end of June, so my wife is trying to get me in shape. Sometimes, I'm convinced she's trying to kill me. We just got back at noon from the wooded ravine next to our property, and the temperature is 88F (31C). I got warm by the end of the hike, but not like I was going to die. So, maybe I'm getting in shape.

There has been good rainfall here this year after a four-year drought, but not a huge amount over the average. For some reason, the wildflowers are more profuse than I have ever seen them, and some varieties are much larger than what I usually see. The Mariposa lilies were the most spectacular ones this week, but there were maybe 25 other varieties we saw today. The Mariposa lilies were taller and had larger blossoms than I've seen before - and they were everywhere!

There is no rain forecast here for the next two weeks. I wonder if that means we've seen the last of rain until October. Here in the Sierra Foothills, we rarely have rain from June through September, although there are often afternoon thunderstorms in the mountains just east of us.
