It is really cold here, and the radio dj has just told us to look out for SNOWFLAKES!! shocked

Fingers crossed - I don't think it has snowed here since the 1930s.

WOW that is cold, the weather report last night said we would be getting a cold snap coming from your way, not cold enough to produce snow though :(
Stay warm Ivy :)

:-P We only have one room with a heater, and this isn't it, so I don't know how long I'll be able to stay here before I turn into an icicle.

On the plus side, it's raining...

It’s a cold one up here in Brisbane today too! I went for a walk in my lunch hour and forgot to take my coat – regretted that!

 

Soooooooo hard to get out of bed this morning!

Yes, I was teasing :-). I'm sure it *feels* cold to you... and am sure that our Canadian and American members are laughing at me for whingeing about our 3C (but I say again that we have no proper heating).

:-) Stay warm, Phoebe.

I'm lucky to have a new burmese kitten to snuggle at on cold nights now. he's a boy so he's going to grow into a big fatsy nugget!
 
I always have a hot water bottle (with a hand-knitted cover that I am very proud of) at my feet. Kitten has had to sleep in the bathroom because he's mewing a lot, but hopefully he gets over that soon. At the moment I get up at 5am to bring him into my bed for a morning cuddle.
 
It was cold again this morning! SOOOO hard to get out of bed and get ready for work! You're right Ivy, our houses aren't really built for this. My queenslander seems hot in summer and cold in winter!

I think it's nutty that we had 47-48C four months ago, and now this. Weird weather.

It is weird weather. And with all the rain – even weirder. I was in the hospital watching the floor waters wash cars away in the middle of Brisbane a couple of weeks back recovering from surgery, during the same time that my parents experienced their third flood in as many months!

yeah, what did you guys down under do with summer? we're supposed to be going into summer now while you're having winter.............and you must have done something with summer! it was in the 40's F here in iowa this morning! and we never got out of the 60's F all day! i shouldn't complain. most of may was in the 70s, and i'll be complaining when we finally do see the 90's and 100's.

i'm looking forward to a decent winter this year, because they are saying that el nino is taking over and la nina is disappearing. we have much better weather with el nino. is el nino good for aussies? or was the heat and fires an anouncement for el nino's return? that was such an oddity for me in december of 1968 arriving in sydney with summer in full bloom! to quote a great russian philosopher......"what a country!" smilewinkgrin

I dare say we used up all summer's heat in February, vv. Sorry.

El Nino is terrible for Aus, btw. We're already gripped by drought, and El Nino means much lower rainfall, and higher than average temperatures. They're already predicting that this coming summer will be hotter and drier than our last. Just great.

Enjoy your better weather...

idea Ah yes, I just looked out the window and right enough, there was some sunshine. eyes Well, enough blue sky to make a pair of shorts with, anyway, if not quite a set of pyjamas. But no warmth of course, that would be too much to hope for !
nono You guys with the clownfooted wildlife really must stop wringing all the heat out of it then sending it back to the depot, I may be a snohare but even I want to wear my summer coat once in a while ! smilewinkgrin
I haven't been keeping up with what is happening to the oceanic currents recently, but if it is El Nino again that is seriously bad news all over the Pacific. I know that there is recent research suggesting with a high level of confidence now that there is an effect whereby the transpiration and evaporation from coastal trees acts as a kind of rainfall "suction" to draw cooler moister air into hotter inland areas; the theory is that deforestation in relatively small specific key areas can make a big difference in shifting where the rains go. (The usual fluttering butterfly effect that keeps popping up in climatology.) The place that springs to my mind is the Atlantic seaboard rainforest along the coast of Brazil, but of course Tasmania would be a candidate.
Have you got a nice cool cellar with a keg, Sydney Jo ? wink I wouldn't be without one in your neck of the woods... yeah Although it sounds like you might want to have really good drains or a scuba set in it. tongue

vv,
We had a very mellow winter here, too. The temp broke the barrier this week, and now we are hoping for some of those cool temps and a little rain.
