Just got back from the village for a jug of milk and a paper, to return the video from last night ("Himalaya", a French production, filmed in haute Nepal with lot's of yaks and stupas). It's a beautiful day with nary a cloud in the sky. One big blue dome, not even contrails. The atmosphere is so clear you can see detail on the half-moon in the western sky at noon. And it's dry enough to need lip balm.

Now, all this is a wee bit disconcerting as I live in a rain forest, and right now it's supposed to be pouring buckets.

How's the weather been where you are? Normal or Not so normal?

Definitely not so normal. We've had the coldest, wettest November in years *pout* It's supposed to be summer here in New Zealand and I'm still wearing slippers. To be fair we've had two days of sunshine, in the last three months. It's not supposed to get better any time soon either.

Yet Australia, not so far away, has been having a drought with incredibly hot temperatures.

We're getting forecasts for temperatures in the +40F range for the next week, and have barely three inches of snow left in the front yard... it's supposed to be below zero and knee deep in snow by now.

(Just as well though, since we'll be needing to put a new engine in the car this weekend, and the donor vehicle is parked outdoors... it's always a bad sign when your engine oil looks like mayonaisse.)

Now we've had a week of clouds so low you can lose your arms putting on your anorak. But still very little rain. The pioneers say it's highly suspect. "There's somethin' brewin'. Nothin' that a heap o' chin scratchin' can fix neither". Which is the sort of synopsis you can really count on. Keeps you looking over your shoulder anyway, in case they're following.

On top of all this I can no longer fantasize about moving to New Zealand if things get totally whacked. We is hooped globally. Odd sense of coziness o'er comes me at the thought. Like lying down in a snow drift.

In Ottawa, Canada, we try to accomodate everybody, that's why every week, you get a taste of all four seasons. Everybody wins!

It's been cold in Tennessee, went through a whole truckload of wood in less than a month. Granted, I like a fire, so on a few of those nights I probably didn't need to have one.

Weather has been strange though. 35 degrees one day, 70 the next. Gotta love it.

NYC: we had more snow yesterday than we had in the entire year last year. Haven't seen sleds in a few years, they were good to see. After just about 3 hours of snow, kids were out and having a good time.

In Vancouver (British Columbia), no snow on the local mountains. Whistler has some but it is mostly man made. In November we had huge amounts of rainfall after several months of very little rain. September was like an extension of summer!? (Without the kids.) Not normal.

Shall I contribute the weather in Phoenix? Highs in the 70's, lows in the 40's. Agonizing....

toadhall and Shane, I know what you're saying, since you both live a stone's throw from me, the ski hills here are starting to get nervous.

I, among so many other things, work part time as a supervisor at a local mountain (Grouse, for those who know Van) and we were talking worst case scenario just today.

It's got to snow soon, I can't remember not having snow through Christmas on the mountains.

Over in eastern Washington we have only seen a light dusting of snow that was gone a couple hours later. We usually have a decent covering of snow by this time and the ski hills are almost always open by now. There is no snow on any of the local mountains. It isn't looking like any snow is coming for at least another week. I'm glad I decided to forgo the season pass this year.

More snow here Wednesday night and Thurs than all of last year. Skiing on Thanksgiving. Very cool:) Maybe next year the white stuff will start falling in August.

I love this weather, its warm here in eastern washington. The snow brings out all the idoits that have been issued a licence and they show how dumb they can be. The drivers here suck anyway, but the snow really brings it out. Dont get me wrong if it werent for the ice, cold, burr factor of winter it would be great. I gotta move where its warm all year round and visit the cold places for the holidays. But my Girl friend likes the snow and cats for that matter. But you know all things come to an end.

It's supposed to be summer here in New Zealand and I'm still wearing slippers

I take it all back. The past week has been hot and sunny and humid and just plain summery. I've ditched the slippers and broken out my sandals. We've already had more heat and sunshine than I remember from all of last summer (which sucked). There's nothing like a cold milkshake after a hot morning's Christmas shopping.

So I'm happy :-D
