I understand. It has been cold and snowy for days. After tomorrow the sun is supposed to finally come out and it is going to be sunny at least for a week and highs in the 40's. Not that I am complaining, because I am ready to retire my snow shovel for awhile. I just wish that instead of snowing all at once it could spread it around a little.

Woohoo! As soon as I get my shoes and coat on, Cubbie is going to go outside and get a big surprise--his first snow! It isn't supposed to last long (rain by tomorrow afternoon) but I can't wait to see his face when he sees it!

LOL When I opened the door, Cubbie didn't know what to think. He stepped out onto the top step and sniffed a little bit. Fortunately he didn't bolt down the steps because that wouldn't have been too good for me (holding his leash). He had a ball out there! There were a couple inches on the ground and it was snowing huge wet snowflakes the whole time we were out there. He tried catching a few of them at first--I think he thought they were bugs or something! We were out there about 30 minutes. I let him stay out as long as he wanted.

It is 6 degrees this morning, I woke up to find that out furnace is not choosing to heat. I guess we don't have enough fuel in our tank and it keeps sucking up icy fuel. Don't have the $$ to fill it til tomorrow. AHHHHHHHHH!
It's space heaters for us today, maybe a whole lot of baking!!!

Hot, humid, sticky, icky, yucky - pick your adjective - and add ice. Lots and lots of it.

Absolutely!!! I have had both a/c going all day today with the fans on and all the curtains drawn - I actually got the place so cold at one point, I pulled the rug over my legs when I was on the couch!! Didn't last long though. Think it was me being tired. It is dark outside now and it is still too hot to do anything.

If I could bottle up some of this heat in a Thermos for you Suzie and ship it off to you - believe me I would!!! It go to about 108F today.

Cool send some over to the east coast

Hi Bilby

Send some of your hot weather over to the east coast. We are getting dumped on by all of Brisbane's cyclone weather 69.8 F (21 C). Monsoonal rainfalls, flash flooding and gale force winds. Our january weather is supposed to be what you are experiencing. We have had so much rain this year. I know we need it, but we need it in rural drought stricken NSW not coastal. How are your dams over there. What I would do for a couple of 40+ days. We had the coldest christmas day this year - 17 degrees celsius, we all had jumpers on. Usually we are jumping into the pool by 7.00 a.m. to cool off. You had a really hot christmas day didn't you, I can remember seeing something like 38 degrees on foxtel.
