LOL, fingers crossed Gatwick are prepared csalt...it was Heathrow that dropped the ball on snow last time I think! D H is flying from an airpot north of Milan that really is practically alpine, so if Italy is prepared I think its a jolly poor show if Gatwick can't be! Although, someone sent me a photo of the most beautiful hoar frost this morning at "home" where as in Milan we are not frozen today, just grey!

Rule of thumb, at present, when talking to a friend in California, I am " his local time - 7 (tomorrow)".

E.g. Midnight his time is 1700 (tomorrow)for me.

So, knowing that, local time here at present is 1014 (10:14am) so in Chicago (couldn't spell Illinois) it should be 1514 (3:14pm) yesterday. GMT is 2314hrs (11:14pm). So, to find the time in Melbourne, it is your local time minus 5hrs tomorrow.

And to the lovely person who sent us 25 points (6mm) of rain yesterday, thank you very much, it was much appreciated.

If you could possibly send a couple of inches though, it would be greatly appreciated. As much as our Northern US brothers and sisters don't need the excessive snow and freezing temps, we are desperate for some good rain......

Yep, another hot one today, not much water around, good excuse to drink plenty of beer......

SNOW!!!!!!!!

It was lovely to wake up and find everything covered in it. The dog almost wouldnt go out! Supposed to snow all day, I might go for a walk in it later!

Unfortunately it has disrupted many airports, schools are closed and trains cancelled/delayed.

We talk your talk when it is summer time here ! ! !
Take your eyes off our snow!!!
Thanks for the time zone info....What are your home beer brewing laws? Our limit is to be able to consume the brew once ready with no leftovers whatsoever.

We had temps in the 70's the last couple of days, but now, it's cloudy with a cold north wind. Maybe lots of rain this weekend, and it's not going to get out of the 40's. I'm ready for spring!
