Sunny, but bitterly cold!!

Old Man Winter is really making people suffer this time around! And the worst part is we still got January and February to tend with, and even March!

Usually in January, we DO get about a week or so of mild sunny weather in the 50's or so.

We will be having a very hot Christmas - 38C (~100F) on Christmas Day with 35C on either side of it. So our plans for Christmas Day lunch have now changed as mum's place has no aircon and we don't want to put the oven on.

Wow, that is hot! My Big Green Egg would cook a fine turkey. What are you having instead of your usual Christmas fare?

Our temps are about freezing and going up to +3 today, +5 tomorrow and some rain predicted. I hope we don't lose all the snow, and that the wind turns around, so we get more winter weather over the holidays.

We are going to have a small grilled crayfish each with lime butter and a sunshine salad (lettuce, tomato, beetroot, pineapple, orange and prunes) but followed by my brother's Christmas pud. That way we only have to use the microwave and electric grill. Luckily Boxing Day is at my house and I DO have aircon!! I turn forty in a couple of weeks, and I am yet to recall more than a couple of Christmas Days where it wasn't either blistering hot or thundering down! Still not used to it though! LOL

Had one semi-frozen Christmas when I went to England, so I can sympathise with you Cordel!! A temperature somewhere in the middle of the two would suit me down to the ground!! LOL

It's crazy warm outside for December (in Ohio),
It's about 50F degrees right now. A bit windy.
Gusts are about 40 m.p.h.
Why can't it STAY like this ?????
I'd LOVE it !!!!!!

Hmm, I love the heat, but Christmas would be hard without snow. I could spend November and the first half of December somewhere hot and sunny, but then it is time to head up and get a little cross-country skiing in.

The grandkids are here and will be out tomorrow making a snowman if the rain is not pouring down too hard. It is above freezing now, but will get colder again tomorrow night.

it was unusually cool here today, normally hitting 30 (88F) or so, yet we've been sitting on 23 (74F-ish) all day, and I want the hot weather again!!! Bilby, what you're having sounds great for Christmas Day, unfortunately my family is very traditional, so we're having the whole baked dinner etc, which means the house will be a furnace (we have a/c, but doesn't do it's job properly if the oven is constantly going). We'll have to take refuge outside in the pergola area and hope there's a wind blowing (or that the temps are like today, lol)
