Down here in S.Eastern Oz it's pretty cool. it's Winter of course!

Melbourne our state capital, recorded an 8 degree Celsius (46 degrees f) maximum this week and that's about as low as our daytime temps reach thank goodness.

Here in the foothills we get night time temps down to 0 degrees but haven't been much below 14 for a max daytime temp. Yesterday and today have been windy and that makes it feel colder. There are occasional showers too.

How about you?

Well Digger up here in the northern latitude in southern New England USA were having a bit of high humidity and temps but it is getting better today and a lower dew point tomorrow. 90 degrees F tomorrow. We had a long winter and I can already see it in the future.

Cold snap up here this week - quite unusal to have several days in a row where I had to de-ice the car windows before going to work - today was first day this week with no need to. Probably been getting down to between -2 and +2 C each night this week. Coldest for more than an isolated night I can remember. Frost everywhere, garden hose frozen up and propper ice on windscreens. Reminds me of time spent in Canberra [biggrin]

Beautiful clear sunny days c 16 degrees and no wind - perfect!
we had longer ways to go, but no matter, the road is life.

G'day HPH,

It gets far too hot here in summer and accordingly winter is the time to get harder jobs done. The best seasons are autumn and spring.

Of course that varies from state to state. Tassie is a little colder than here though everything else is warmer being north of us.

At least we don't get snow here!

Foreseeing winter? Chuckle...I'm thinking that we are half way through winter~

Dig...

I dunno... your winter sounds like my idea of awfully nice weather if it ain't rainin' all that much.

Last week's big rodeos had temps in the mid 80s to mid 90s F - 30-35 C. Too warm for me really... 50-60 F daytimes with sun and nights around 40F sound nice. 10-15 C days and 4 C nights...

Keep it dry and keep about 3,000 -6,000, around 1-2 Km for altitude above sea level so the air ain't soupy thick.

110 is pretty warm, but it would be a dry heat wouldn't it there?

Jeez Dig, folks around here would KILL for a 46 degree day in the dead-of-Winter. Right now, 70 and already muggy, looks like it just got done raining, heat lightning to the East, ground still wet, calling for a nice day, so me and Sonny Boy are headed to the field, and todays flight(s) will be all our Micro Airplanes, as well as the usual Helicopter contingent, with my Homebuilt C.P. Helicopter (first homebuild) that might just hover today if numbers are correct, and everything holds together. If that can happen, might do it's maiden flight today. No film, sorry. Every time we maiden an aircraft, and film it, something happens, usually bad, so it's film debut will happen after it's "audition".

It's going to be hot today 88F / 31C then back to the mid 80s tomorrow.

When I was growing up in South Florida, the temperature rarely got above 85 and that was reserved for the late August "dog days", now it does that often. Global warming? Rampant population growth? Perhaps both?

Stay warm Dig, anything under 70F / 21C is too cold for man or beast ;)

Eees trroo Senior, even our little itty-bitty Micro Helicopters will open you up, and the really thin blades of the micro you can't feel, so you feel it hit yer leg, and 2 minutes later yer kids telling you yer bleedin'...and it dawns on you, "no more close fly-bys.". Thank God I learned that lesson with those then that poor kid in N.Y. who got decapitated by his 450 size heli. They ARE dangerous, they're NOT toys (in the pure sense anyway). When I put up my 500 (MONSTEROUS thing) I'm standing at LEAST 25 yards upwind...

We had our coldest and longest winter in about 90 years and our spring was more like a mild winter with temps often dropping below freezing even in June. The prospects of having any summer at all seemed futile because even up until the last day of June the weather was deathly cold.As soon as July came in,it was like someone turned on a switch because from July 1 onward the weather has been hotter than any other July on record so far. All the old folks were saying that the winter we had was like the "old Fashioned" winters thast they had in their youth and predicted that we'd have an "old fashioned" summer with hot weather right into September-so far it seems that they were right because for the 3rd day in a row the temps have been getting up to and past 32C - (90F),which is uncommonly hot for this early in summer since we are surrounded by the North Atlantic on all sides.

Thanks Bob, we're nice and cosy inside thanks, though I will have to do a firewood run in the coming week!

Hang on 31 isn't hot, we'd put that in the "warm" category..chuckle~

I believe in "climate change" as the result of nature in general.

While some folks have taken data and decided people are making it warmer, faster - or if that's challenged, more rapidly fluctuating - others might consider that the magnetosphere is dwindling and ... more "stuff" from the sun is getting in. There's no way to blame the earth's magnetic properties on using fossil fuels.

Once upon a time the Vikings had farms in Greenland. That's not likely now.

The increases of populations along coastlines is, and should be, a point of concern regardless if we had a constant rerun of some "proper" decade of weather repeated as in Groundhog Day. There are always storms and folks are gonna get hit - and the more folks, the more are gonna get hit in areas where storms go.

A tornado, btw, basically leveled a whole town in my state and floods destroyed batches of businesses and homes but... not enough friendly votes for FEMA under current management to decide they deserve federal help.

Milod my friend I guess we'll know who's right in a thousand years or so, but I aint sticking around to find out!

My mind tells me that it is likely that humans are polluting the atmosphere but I just don't know if that is changing our weather or not?? I do feel that it is likely, if not now but in the future.

Our recording of weather patterns span a very short time in the scheme of things so it's hard to prove.

I think that exploding populations almost guarantee that the environment will ultimately be fouled to the extent that human life will be impossible, or at the least very difficult.

Therefore we should "honour the threat" to some degree. The logical answer is to drastically reduce population but not sure if we can do that on our own. We may need the help of the Princess Gaia in the long term? In the end I think the earth will shrug off this virus called "mankind" and after a few millions of years maybe something else will get a chance to evolve and do things better than we have?

Then again, maybe a big asteroid? Bound to happen eventually. Move over dinosaurs, here we come~
