Maybe we should all meet in Turks and Caicos. 80F (27C) all week. Seems like a good middle ground. Last year at this time I was packing for the Caribbean but this May we are going to the UK, that is if I can survive February.

Comfortable right here at the moment 27-32 mainly. A few warm ones at 38-40C but returns to nice temp.

Was in the UK last year and did the bottom end Eastbourne,Hull,Bath and a day or two in London (4 weeks)

Later this year had planned to check out the top bit around and below Edinburg with trying to tie the date for WW11 Plane re-enactment but health issues have stuffed that idea.

It's 75F here in Sunny Stuart, Florida. And it's almost 7:30pm at night. Not too shabby. Gotta love the Florida Weather in the winter time, but when summer rolls around, so humid

Our temperatures here in North Carolina on Thursday will average 21 degrees F. below normal for this time of year, sub-freezing night and day. Damn this global warming, we might have to fly to Australia to thaw out.

A lot of area schools (including the setting IV behavior learning center I work at) are late start tomorrow due to wind chill reaching -40 F. Brrrr... Kitty is tucked in tight for the winter.

We get news updates on the Tele of the crappy weather in the UK and parts of the US.

Seems right where I am is good place to be! Having said that I acclimatised fairly quickly to your UK weather last year. It seems better if the sky is blue.

You did suffer severe flooding the week after I left,maybe it was a natures way of cleansing by flushing.

On a US television station this morning: "An invasion of Arctic air from Canada will see temperatures plummeting this week"

Finally we get credit for something besides Captain Kirk

An invasion on US soil?

No doubt DHS will need even more funding.

I'll let you how perfect in a few days,

Heading back to sunny Brisbane (high 20's, blue sky) in about 10 minutes time in the XJ6 (600km).

Then getting the 4x4 and camper ready for a few days on the beach, beering,fishing, and 4x4.

sometimes you have to put up with other people on your piece of beach! I like about 1 km either side of us clear of intruders. We drive on the beach about 40km north of the access road

Wind and driving rain at present!

Just checked and according to local / regional weather reports we are having winds from 70mph up to 100 mph.

I've already picked up the trash bins twice and have since added some weight on top to stop them from flying away. I advised a neighbour across the street that his massive trampoline was just about to fly over the fence and down the street if not into my garden / vehicles.

Few surges in electricity too, lights flickering and Sky also affected.......

Well, the fires are all but out, NO lives lost this time, luckily.

Now we are hunkering down for the most rain in a 3 day period that we have ever seen. Bear in mind we are in "The driest state in the driest continent", so 100mms of rain here is flood material.

42C two days ago, now 28C ish and 98% humidity, and BLACK skies, waiting for the deluge.

Wink Jaguar/Snow Leopard

Wow! Are these things GREAT in snow!
I've read much and absorbed some in my few weeks since joining this site. I apparently unconsciously compensated for overstatement of Jaguar virtues from such a loyal group of fans.
I really believe the testimonials to Jag winter operation were understated. This is a 2-ton overpowered rear-wheel drive muscle-sedan, and handles quite well on/in ice and snow.
Lakes edge northern Ohio has enjoyed -4F temps, ice, snow & 40 mph winds. My '99 VDP starts instantly, warms up quickly, clears windows in seconds, heats the seats toaster-warm right now, and is a BLAST to drive in/on snow/ice-covered roads. (Or screwing around like a 16 yr old in unplowed mall parking lot slaloms!)
Completely stable in 40 mph shear winds on highway bridges, lets you slide around as much as you want, & snaps back straight when throttle is lifted slightly!

I was afraid the car might not live up to my rather high expectations. It exceeds them regularly.

Jaguar ..... I think I'm starting to get it!

A blessing for sure,kudos to the Fireys. We heard 38 houses,and counting,lost not to mention all the other infrastructure..





I thought I saw a post from Clarke back there,probably something about Humidity.

And I would quote Jim's 160KPH breeze except his signature uses a 1/2 a weeks data

Default tooo cold

We hit the Magic number today -30C (-22F) when bad things start to happen.

1. Vehicles without block heaters fail to start. (The SUV)
2. Batteries that are 5 years or older fail. (Company Car)
3. Wife will not get out of bed to make coffee until I get up and light the wood fired furnace.
4. Cell phones and laptops left in the car overnight are now junk. (maybe the laptop will thaw)
5. Windshield washer fluid rated at -45c turns to gel. Doesn't clean the windshield, it makes it worse
6. Shock absorbers are rock solid, AKA Harley Hardtail
7. Winter tires are just as useless as all season tires, hard as a rock
8. Road Salt no longer melts ice
9. Transmissions won't go into gear, or shift horribly
10. Water lines in the office are Frozen.
11. Life decisions are questioned, I came back to Canada because.....

Jeff, you have listed among your reasons several why I don't live in Montana anymore.

The first time I came to California (with family) I knew I was always a California girl, merely born in the wrong place. As soon as I was able I set about correcting that and succeeded soon after high school.

I have don't plan to go back.
