The cool nights we are having are such a boon and a blessing. It won't be long at all, as summer wears on, until even the nights are warm, humid, and stifling, and my apartment will require the refrigerated air going all night long in order to sleep comfortably. But for now, the windows are shut, the air conditioner is silent, the fan is off, and it's ever so much more peaceful at night.

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!)

email I wrote yesterday -
Last night the heavens opened at 2.20am & as I was still listening to Niagara falling at 3, I got up - & the rain kept falling yesterday & is still falling today.

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

The rain covers most the the east coast of Australia & as always happens State Emergency Services have so far rescued 77 drivers who drove thru flood waters, contrary to official advice.

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.

here in Sydney we finally have autumn or maybe even winter after a very looooong summer.

Since Easter I've been sleeping under a fine woolen shawl & it is only in the past few weeks I've got my thin blankets out & finally got my down quilt out late last week. I also brought out fleecy & woolen stuff for daytime wear.

forecasts for this week in Sydney are up to 20C max, with nights 12-14 + rain. Latest temp recorded (7.10pm Tues) is 13.8C

The weather here is raining another serial killer spewing death for 3 and wounding two. Coincidentally with the DC snipers who shot and killed people at the same intersection and grocery store. This time a federal cop that was stripped of all that he felt he had achieved went on a murder spree at locations in which we see movies and go to eat. Picking up some Zithromax at my drugstore I ran into the arrest scene of the killer and watched his car get towed away.

I was thinking of starting a new thread called Your daily local shooting but The Brits don't have this kind of problem that Americans do. Shootings here get as much coverage as the weather and often even more.

To me the shootings have become as common as the weather in conversation, injury and more often than weather, death.

I scheduled a singaround and flower hike at my house April 9, but very few people showed up because it was threatening to rain. We worked around rainstorms, and saw lots of flowers without getting wet. I was hoping to schedule a makeup hike this Saturday, May 7, but it's supposed to rain all weekend. The flowers sure love it, though - there were more flowers in the wooded ravine next door, than I've seen in the 14 years I've lived here.
The mosquitoes love it, too. I just came back from a flower hike, and I'm itching all over. The flowers were pretty, though.
