Looks like you got your wish, we got a bunch of snow and cold in the last couple of days but it looks like a lot of the states are still colder.
Yesterday I was driving in the freezing rain and when I tried to use my wipers it just created a sheet of ice I could not see out of!
It is -14C (7F) right now and supposed to get down to -18C (0F). Brrrrrrr.
Stupid cold, stupid shovelling.
I can't believe how much snow we got this winter! At first I thought I had not seen this much since I was a little girl but now I am not sure if I have every seen this much snow in one winter! <---look I am blue from this cold

2300z (1000 local) it is 32C and we are looking at another 35C+. I pity you guys in Nth Am at the mo' with all that ice & snow around, but if you wouldn't mind sending some over it'd be much appreciated. Some rain would be nice also as we haven't had any for quite some time now........

I have a friend whose son is in your country as an exchange student. What time and date is it there? I don't know when to call him.

G'day mate.

What part of Oz is your friend's son in? We have more time zones than a zebra has stripes .

On the East Coast, NSW, Vic, Tas are GMT+11hrs (daylight saving) and Qld is GMT+10hrs. We are a day ahead of the States and 1/2 a day ahead of EU.

Lots of snow - our first big snow. Pretty much crippled the city at rush hour!

The dog went outside earlier and was not happy about the frost all over her grass! She sniffed around for a minute before she finally walked on it to pee!

28F at the moment, tomorrow morning we are supposed to get snow. Which will quickly turn to slushyness and everyone driving will freak out!

Lulu..don't worry too much. I think we're due more sub zero temps in the next few days/nights but if there is snow it won't be very thick; especially not in London?

There'll probably be 5ft drifts now to prove me wrong!!
