Today, we can watch the snow disappear as the rain pours down. Our road will be a mess, since the snow is melting and the road was probably not thoroughly frozen before it got covered in snow. It is +7, a silly number for Dec. 23.

I'm in Queensland, about 30mins north of Brisbane. Humid again today, and I reckon we might have a few showers. Nothing major though, but I expect it'll probably be the same tomorrow though too.

Well we are under a flash freeze warning. It has been raining for just over 24 hours, and there is a cold front coming in, bringing snow along with the freezing. I hope everyone who has to travel for the holidays are safe. I am glad my daughter is safely at her in-laws, and by the time they leave for here, things should be settled again.

A cold front blew (howled, actually) in last night, and temps fell very quickly from 60 to 30. No complaints, though...it's been a beautiful sunny day, and it could be a lot worse here at this time of year.
We did have a tree blow down last night, but it was a scrappy looking elm about a foot in diameter, and was probably rotten, anyway. I doubt we'll bother with it until spring. In the meantime, it's covered with ivy that the deer couldn't reach before, so they'll enjoy nibbling on it for a while.

Today is meant to be 43C which they said on radio this morning was the hottest expected maximum for a capital city anywhere in the WORLD today! As I write this, it is just over 40C. Needless to say, I am in lockdown in my house with my mum and my cats, trying to stop the heat getting in and stopping the aircond-ed air escaping!! LOL

At my place in Nevada the next 5 day forecast. Snow showers, wind and COLD!
The high for the period is forecast to be 35 degrees, the lows in the single digits.

BRRRRRRRRRRRR!

Today was the hottest Boxing Day on Perth's records (44.2C) which is the highest December temperature ever! Fires a surrounding Perth and power outages are rife across the city. Animals and people have been suffering from heat exhaustion and one of the southern suburbs are awaiting evacuation notices from fires jumping roads. It is just gone 7pm and it is still 37.6C. Really horrible day...

Rainy, drab, cool, almost puts me into a 'sullen' mood. I guess better today than Christmas!
