we had a very pleasant day, more like a spring day, in summery Sydney, Australia, cool, cloudy with a spot of rain, but very high UV readings.

I live on the edge of the CBD & have the advantage of harbour breezes, those who live in Sydney's western suburbs are always a few degrees higher. Here in the CBD we had 2 days around 36C (about 98F) + high humidity, temperatures fell to 30C at 6pm yesterday. Today (Thursday) was much cooler with 20 at 2.30am & 19 @ 2.30pm & no horrible humidity, yah!!

Those like JennieG who live much further west in the Small Smoke get higher temperatures, with very low humidity.

Donuel's report is on point. The weather is in a condition of conflict, as there are several systems fighting each other. Whip-sawed, I tell you, we are being whip-sawed. Tomorrow, into the subfreezing nadir for several days. Then a warm storm system on the weekend brings the temperature above freezing. Water-repellent boots, and put the dress boots someplace warm and dry.

Yesterday, I saw it. It started real gentle like. Small and large flakes gently wafting straight down. I knew the last forecasts were wrong. One of those, "Oh crap." moments.

Well b'y, when I looked out afore I headed fer me bunk around 00:30 today, she looked like the arse end fell out of a cloud. I rose at 6:00 and walked through heavy wet snow 8+" deep and scuffed off the driveaway at Mum's back door. Lights flickered three times around 7:30 so I checked the outages... around 8000 in Moncton but we held steady. City plow didn't show up until about 9:30. That first wet snow plays hell with hydraulic hoses 'n such, eh?

Don't bother me much. Booked an appointment two weeks ago and got me badass HD snow tires with studs put on yesterday. Tell me who knows da wedder, eh? I suppose it could be just the Luck o' the Irish but I'll take the credit like a' Irish would. >;-)

Baltic here for the last few days, tho' less cold today and this evening--- however we have had blazing sunshine during the short days! Quite amazing.
The nights have been 'fair drawing in' - sunrise is about 7.30/8am and chickens are all in the hutch roosting by 16.00/16.15 -- - and yet there are still flowers in bloom, green leaves, and spring bulbs appearing - very confusing!
I don't mind the winter when we have a blink of sun and blue skies- - not so pleasant if there's lots of rain and lowering clouds.
We seem to have less snow than in the past; being on the coast does often keep it at bay - - salty air?

I have been getting ready for the first "big snowstorm that wasn't" of the season. Even had a big article in the trashpaper about it. The weather terrorists laced into this one full bore. Twits. I expect, at present, some light snow and then light rain. Anyway, got gas for the car and quip, got the snow clothes ready, got the shovels ready... all the necessities. I figure it'll be just a matter of weeks before we actually get a real storm so why not? After all, I am a Boy Sprout. Always Prepared.

It was good to see the sun today, but the earth really does need more rain. We experienced drought conditions in '77 which ended with the Blizzard of '78 in February of that year. I hope this drought ends without a blizzard or floods!

And after yesterday's thorough soaking, puffy pale-grey clouds are moving rapidly across the sky, and an occasional hole in the clouds allows a well-scrubbed clear blue sky to peak through.

Of course, now that the sun is on the verge of coming out, it will shine on trees that are mostly bare, which was not the case even one week ago.

My French teacher taught me a memorable turn of phrase:

"Il pleut comme une vache qui pisse."

Which is what it is doing today, pissing down rain.
Certainly needed, though. There are as many leaves on the ground as there are remaining on the trees; and the drier the weather, the more the dried-up leaves contribute to dust and dander and everything. It was time for things to be safely damped down. At least it is warm enough, for some reason, not to have frost or freezes making things wintry tonight.

Sunday I washed my quilt cover & packed away my 80% down quilt as I've not used it for a week. If we get a cool snap I'll bring out my thin blanket or my even thinner wool shawl.

Warm & very warm days, some with humidity, tho none last night!

We are heading into the normal hot humid Sydney summer, but this weekend I'll be 250km out west where nights are still cold (memo to self pack clothes for summer days & cool nights)

Although it is November and past Election Day, we are having October weather: warm, clear, and dry, with this cloudless blue sky overhead.

It is possible for people who have been curled up indoors to come out today, and pretend that November hasn't even happened yet. And all that comes with November.

In Juneau, Alaska today, we are forecast to have one more bright, dry day, closing October's record-breaking month. The weather in Juneau is typically cool, even nippy (we are at latitude 58) pretty much year 'round with lots of rain, right at 100 inches of it, on top of another 100 inches or so of winter time snow. These last couple of years have not been normal - last winter the ground didn't freeze to any depth. And now, just like many other places in the world, we're having record-breaking temperatures.

I'm hoping for a snowy winter this year- we're far enough north - and with mountains all around - that warmth traveling to us from the south may react to the Pacific Ocean outside our door and give us snow instead of rain. Fingers crossed.

And today,it was slightly warm and felt warmer because of humidity which eventually became rain. Normally I would go to a chantey sing in Bristol, RI, on the third Friday of warmish months, but it's held around a campfire. The planners promised if it rained we would move indoors because this is the last one until spring, but I couldn't picture myself walking through rough, wet, unlit fields to get to the historic farmhouse or back to my car. I could see lightning in the distance and I heard flash flood warnings, so I turned my car around and drove home through Providence's commuter traffic.

When my flight left Providence, Rhode Island yesterday, it wasn't all that cold really; must have been in the '60s Fahrenheit. The problem was the wind. After the rainstorms moved out, the wind pushed in. The kind of wind that says, Summer is SO OVER. Dry, cold, biting, withering wind. I needed several layers, including the winter parka with the hood up, to get from my parked car to the airport terminal.

This morning I wake up in Paradise Valley, part of greater Phoenix, Arizona, where they tell me it is no longer so hot as it had been all summer. Now that it is no longer summer here, they actually get through an entire day without breaking 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and the nighttime temperatures drop down to almost 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

In my rental car, however, I still pack my winter parka -- to wear indoors, when the refrigerated air is especially, erm, refrigerated. Especially if I am sitting still at a computer.
