42?

42.6C at 1400 this afternoon. It's not the meaning of life and everything, nor is it bloody Christmas!

Trade anybody for a bit of cold and damp and closing the curtains at 1530 - bit of snow would be bonus

Sure you want to go there?


-53C in Regina, Saskatchewan this day. Fill your boots.

And I'm sure Jerry Coe will have a slightly similar report, if he can get his fingers to work.

And this is SOUTHERN Canada.

An easy minus 10C for the last week here but a balmy minus three today. We have people skating on Green Lake the last couple of days. By far the earliest I have ever seen that.

Global warming? Bah Humbug.

Whilst I would be wracked by guilt and angst regarding the carbon footprint involved in the travel.....cough.....just send the first class ticket to moi and you have a deal pal !

Fog now lifted, about -2/3C...nil wind....and another winters day in the UK looms.

I'm presuming that is the figure reflecting wind chill factor?

Probably too busy shovelling snow out of his driveway...

Changed the car battery yesterday, reprogrammed all the knobs and tits except the external temperature readout, which was previously in Deg C and now was Deg F.

Imagine my delight to discover that the temperature had gone from 5 deg to 54 deg in the space of 20 minutes, without any prompting this was a cause for application of suncream, filling of ale jugs and lighting of barbecues.

Her indoors just didn't understand, but then again, what do wimin know?

According to WeatherOffice Canada the coldest it got at Regina Airport was -33 at 2300. Coldest Wind Chill was -48 at 2100.

Still no place for brass monkeys.

Damned hot for Scotland at ANY time of year.....

Raining like hell here in Dubai today. Car park had 7" of water, since things like drains haven't occurred to the locals yet.

I'm shivering as well. Can I get a refund?

Hadn't he got a MIL to do that?

+2 in the Dutch Highlands at the moment, clear skies and almost no wind.

Winter drawers on.

Will trade for a warm place. Has to have an airfield nearby
Might I suggest the future (hopefully) home of the brickhistory clan - well, at least the master and mistress.

Brick....very nice Sedona looks too, even from sunny Devon, UK.

Tell me one thing, though; I read the 102 things you can do in Sedona, and good fun they all are.

But how do they errrrr............how can I put this.............renew the population? The usual technique is not listed.
