Two months ago I posted that the rivers near where I live
had risen, before freezing, over their banks.

It's still like that.
The one local route between towns, that I drive on every day,
has some low-lying stretches that cross the
upper part of the Charles River, the twisty turny part
with wetlands and marshes all around.

It gives me a turn to see
how high the ice -- the river level, I mean --
is over the banks and creeping up to the level of the road itself.
Are we in for another year where the river floods the road?

here in sunny Sydney it's not normally as hot as where JennieG lives 400knm to the west. She is normally living in a furnace & I'm living in a sauna, but we both have high temperatures & low humidity at the moment.

Today in the Big Smoke, next to the Harbour it's 38 with 24% humidity at 4pm, & only 32 with 29% humidity in the Small Smoke.

I'm not aware of Sydney's current low humidity, cos it feels like the 80% we had overnight when I was sooo pleased that I'd had my 12" fan fixed yesterday, because had a good blast of very cool air all night.

We are experiencing short days, about 7-1/2 hours daylight, but enjoying increasing light at a rate of 5 minutes a day, and the human organism notices this, if only unconsciously. So there is a chipperness in the air.
Considering the very cold temperatures being experienced throughout the American 'Lower 48' we had chilly but unremarkable weather two weeks ago, to about zero deg F (-12 deg C) which is not news for Alaska. But then we had a warm up to exactly a couple of degrees above freezing, and now we have dangerous conditions of rain mixed with snow falling on ice. So the danger is that we will be falling, too.

You can be sorry for us then, Joe!

Here in north-western N.S.W. it's been a very hot January. Daytime maximum temps are 5.4 deg C above average compared to long term January figures, and overnight minimum temps are 4.4 deg C higher too. This does not bode well for the future.

As well as the long term effects we are fed up with heat. No one is sleeping as well as we should, and days are very draining too. This morning.....10 a.m., as we speak.....is quite smokey, we can smell smoke in the air from fires. We can't see the hills on the other side of the valley because of smoke haze, usually we have a wonderful view for a very long way.

I think I will stay inside today, and drink coffee, and play music, and sew.

Here in the Sierra Foothills of California, it's 61 degrees F (16 Celsius), and partly cloudy. We've had a reasonable amount of rain the last 6 weeks, and things are greening up nicely. Our first flowers came out last week - paperwhite narcissus, growing in profusion. I imagine our fruit trees will blossom soon. We'll get some snow before the end of April, but our weather will generally be mild and in the 50s and 60s in the day and 30s and 40s at night.
If you don't live in California, I'm sorry about your weather.

about a line of snow squalls blowing through --
it would be over quickly,
but when the squalls hit there is blizzard visibility,
and you know what that means.

We got some very bad news this afternoon. Neighbour-across-the-road is in his seventies, but still does a bit of lorry-driving now and then.

He had to deliver a huge wooden prefabricated building to some place in Wales. He succeeded in spite of the snow and icy conditions over there, and the enormous low-loader was to be left in Wales.

A chap picked him up in his small truck to bring him back to Norfolk but the vehicle skidded on the compacted snow and ice, overturned and our neighbour broke his neck.

He was taken by Air Ambulance to Stoke Mandeville hospital in Buckinghamshire and they operated immediately to relieve pressure on his spinal chord.
His wife says he can feel his legs and his hands are moving a bit. She's going with her son to visit him tomorrow.

The problem is that we don't seem to cope very well with snow here in UK. Other more snowy lands deal with it so much more effectively.

The rain came down, the sun came out,
there was some melting and it was possible
to plow and clear and treat with salt,
and get the road surfaces dry.

Now there is this frigid air mass slouching towards the East.
Like the rough beast in Yeats's "Second Coming" poem.
At least we got the roads clear before it gets here.

Hot......dangerously hot. Last night was the hottest ever recorded in parts of Australia, 35.9 deg in western N.S.W. Heat records are falling as we speak, and mutterings about "when is it too hot to safely work outside" are filling up news stories. This is the hottest weather for over 80 years, not a record we wish to set; we (indeed much of Australia) are suffering a run of daytime temps of over 40 deg.

It seems that night time temps are warming up at a greater rate than daytime temps, and that has health implications. People whose job requires them to be alert during the day are suffering from lack of restful sleep - and that is not good for society.

In the Berkshires I stay at a budget motel in Lee. I took myself there most recently for my birthday weekend and may return in February if my son and his family use their timeshare near the motel where I stay. There may be a problem, though.

We had two plowable snowfalls in November and last week was well below freezing...enough to maintain the patches of ice between my car and the house that were left over from the one inch of white concrete that precipitated a week and a half ago. (That's what quickly turned into that sheet of ice.)
