Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
The temp here (BVI) dropped to 79 a couple of nights ago and I had to haul out my winter blanket to stop my teeth from chattering. :)
Interesting what some people call good weather isn't it?
Last week they were saying that the central North Island might have snow for Christmas for the first time ever. I seem to remember that some time in the late 1950's there was snow in one of the South Island summer resorts.
And google.co.nz is showing snowmen so maybe they know something.
Raised in upstate New York (and with most of my early earnings from shoveling routes!), I don't mind the cold too much. But I would prefer a week or two to acclimate!
Only minus 20 here (whereas it is usually a few degrees colder than Montréal on average). The craziest thing is the forecast for the next few days: Friday is down as being 7 degrees (plus 7!) with rain. That's quite a temperature swing!

Olwen, you've got the worst of it so far. Snow on your summer solstice - brutal.
So... when is this global warming stuff going to kick in?
But, they were out picking grapes all weekend for ice wine. Earliest harvest ever, they usually do it in mid-january.
More good news about the cold..... my car started no problem. :-)
Here in England in the North it's exactly 0 degrees C (32F) and we're hpoing for a white Christmas :-)
Me too :)
gotta love englands "extreme" weather conditions. Just a degree below freezing and the country grinds to a halt.
Snow is definite possibility [bbc.co.uk]
In fact I have only once had to scrape a small amount of ice off the car.
Today it's 10 degC in Penzance and it feels cooooold!
Feel sorry for the people in the really cold places.
I think I must be part lizard.
