Buffalo DID get a huge amount of snow.
But you wouldn't know it from just across the border from New York State, somewhat to the south as well as east;
it's dry as a bone over here.
And a clear dry blue sky as well,
until it gets dark FAR TOO EARLY.
Sorry about the shouting,
but the dark evenings are a real bummer sometimes.

Just remembered that the future Mrs Steve and I spent the whole of August that year in the north of Scotland. It was just as hot up there. On one infamous day we climbed, at my behest, The Saddle, a mountain almost as high as Snowdon, from the youth hostel at Ratagan, which meant starting out from sea level. Apart from boots, I was wearing swim shorts only and she was in a bikini. As we sweltered our way to the summit, she glared at me and declared that she hated me with every ounce of heat in her body...

We did spend many a grand evening in the Kintail Lodge Hotel. Ah, the memories...

That wouldn't have been 1976, would it? The year of the legendary hot summer and drought, followed by an extremely wet September (just as the Labour government had appointed a Minister for Drought...)

I was piqued into looking up the statistics for that summer and I've just discovered that the 36.0° we had in Bude on July 18 this year was hotter than any temperature recorded in 1976!

Apologies if I've aged you too much... Mrs Steve and I were teaching in the East End in 1976, and there were quite a few afternoon school closures that summer because of the heat. The hottest spell of all was from late June into the first half of July. I fondly remember many a long balmy evening supping lager outside the Angel in Rotherhithe...

We got married at the end of that year, just before Christmas, on one of the wettest, gloomiest, darkest days imaginable, and I had a dreadful cold. As we're still together I suppose you could have said then that the only way was up!

I can still remember a (newspaper?) picture from the days when water was so short that we had standpipes in the streets: a standpipe poking out of floodwaters. It may or may not have featured on the front page of Private Eye.

.... but at least said floodwaters were caused by rain, not Thames Water mains-pipe leakage. England at its best.

Thanks to my very kind sister who sent me the money, I ordered heating oil and it arrived this morning. There was a frost on Monday, so I need to keep the pipes in the loft from freezing, and the house is nice and cosy now.
I feel so sorry for people who can't afford to heat their homes. And the Winter Fuel Payment of £500 still hasn't arrived. The Government letter said 'If it hasn't arrived by January, contact us'. January?? Silly fools. I bet they're all sitting around in their cosy mansions drinking champagne!

Another sunshiny day with 17.5°C on my (reasonably accurate) thermometer. We were out on the Bromptons again. The weather is exceptional, even making the news. By now, we could expect 10° and chilly nights, but we're getting mid-May (but without the long days) instead and there's no frost in sight. All my summer bedding is still in full bloom. It'll certainly make this winter seem shorter, but there is, of course, a worry behind it all.

We are having an exceptionally mild autumn. Best of both worlds today as it had dried up and the sun peeped out. We had 18°C yesterday and 17° today, both exceptional. Mrs Steve and I took our folding electric Bromptons for a spin along the Tarka Trail in north Devon, setting off from East The Water, and we had lunch, sitting outside, at the wonderful Fremington Quay café, which has stunning views across the Taw/Torridge estuary to Braunton Burrows and Baggy Point. It was a lovely day out, the low light was gorgeous and we felt exhilarated enough to go home and scoff spag bol from on our laps as we watched Strictly. One of the days of the year, and at the end for me of yet another spell of ill-health with cellulitis, which, for once, I'd managed to shake off in under a week, thanks to my doc's rapid intervention. And it would have been my mum's 94th birthday today so we raised a glass to her. Not, unfortunately, with her favourite tipple, which was Baileys. On that alone, she and I could not agree!

The past thirty-six hours have run the gamut.
Last night was uncommonly warm and muggy, thanks to
the remnants of Tropical Storm Nicole migrating north.
Today started out warm and cloudy;
the temperature has plummeted during the day,
and the next few nights promise very cold temperatures.

here in the Land of Oz, we're heading into summer & we've had lots more wet weather this year. Some areas are facing their 3rd floods this year.

Strong Antarctic polar vortex adds to south-east Australian rainfall and flood risk, BOM says

shift in the wind direction across Sydney is behind the city's record wet year

Bureau of Meteorology flags potential low off east coast as rain and storms continue

too much info!

Rain is forecast for greater Sydney every day this week.

My little bit of Sydney, near the CBD & the harbour is not in danger of flooding, but I always carry my raincoat.

Our house and garden are on raised ground a good few feet above the surrounding farmland and there are no watercourses nearby. The two entrances to the house both have several steps up before you get inside. They had good sense 130 years ago! We simply can't flood whatever happens. Also, we're 120 feet above sea level with the sea less than half a mile away, so we're safe from even the worst tsunamis too!

Yesterday I felt rather tired, so I told myself that today I'd be a good girl and mow both lawns (which have shot up due to recent rain.) As my lawnmower is an electric one, the ground has to be dry for me to do it safely.
But during last night I awoke to hear heavy rain and this morning the ground is sodden. "Oh dear, what a shame, never mind!" I shall just have to potter around indoors, then sit on The Bench if the rain stays away and watch the grass growing yet more.

At around 2am last night I was awakened by the sound of absolutely torrential rain. It was bucketing down, terrific noise. We've had such a long drought, and I was worried that the concrete-hard earth wouldn't be able to absorb the deluge, and we'd have flooding.
I got up as usual at 5am for my morning cup of tea, and had a look outside. No floods thank goodness,and the water has filtered down nicely. I bet the river Wensum has risen. This sometimes floods the road out of this village. Hope not! But many of the village children have purchased paddle-boards recently, and they may come in useful now!
