Yesterday felt almost like summer - today is supposed to be 76. Probably as soon as we get used to the warm weather, it will take a nosedive. I hope I don't lose my plants with such erratic weather patterns.

It was so windy I had to go out and take down all my hagning baskets on the patio..It tore the mesh cloth cover over the other patio completely off and it's gone, not even in sight...What a mess..Plus I've had the lights go off 6 times today, really is a pain, I'm hoping the lights stay on now as the prime rib is cooking and I'd hate to have it Moooo when served

humid and gloomy...YUCK! I wish it was cold enough, 40s at least, so we could enjoy some hot cocoa and actually wear some warm-ups down here in the south. We took out our summer t-shirts and shorts last week. Blah!

It's very stormy here. Windy and rainy and gross. Not fun to be out in with a new baby and an out of control 2 year old...

Yesterday was either the hottest or 2nd hottest day ever recorded in Sydney (depending on which news you watched!) When we drove home from a friend's pool at 6pm the outside temp was still 43 C and it got up to about 45 during the day (I'll try to convert to F) Oh boy just converted!! 45 is 113 F!!! There was a hot westerly wind blowing all day and there wasn't much humidity so some bushfires started which was terrible but luckily we got a southerly around 10pm and have had some rain today so its lovely now.

WOW! That's hot! Glad to hear you got some rain to cool off! The temp here in Kansas is 45 degrees (I wish I could convert that to 65 ), so it looks like we are probably on a downward slope and it is going to start getting colder here.

Speaking of our friends from Australia, where's Brooksy?
