Should we talk about the weather?
« on: December 28, 2014, 05:28:25 AM »
I don't think there should be a separate weather thread.
Extreme events are shared in What's On Your Mind

We  shouldn't have a separate weather thread,
it'll be filled with inane I saw cloud today stuff.

It's been wet, cool and wet the last couple of days.
I'm wearing layers in December.

It is going to be warm tomorrow.

Hello I'm sorry, I lost myself.

It's hell outside. It's going to be 37?C today they say. There isn't that much shade in this concrete city for refuge. I'd rather wear layers in December than fight over telephone post shade with about 20 other people.  >:(

:D I didn't see any clouds, I wish there were a few, though. 

Soon the northern hemisphereans will come along and talk about how wonderfully cold it is where they are.
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

What's with the weather presenters using the phrase "weather bomb"? Lovely day here though.

Cold and rainy here in Central Texas.  I'm off work for a week.  I'll be sawing logs (literally) for the fireplace today.  It will be in the 20's F tonight.  I have some large oak trees on my property, and as limbs die I use them for firewood.

I think we're supposed to be into the seventies today. Of course, they called for freezing rain today and tomorrow, but I have my doubts considering it's tshirt weather.

We've got snow, snow and more snow. Temperatures are -4 degrees Celcius. Tomorrow it will be -15 degrees.

Sounds pleasant. I'm ignorant on North American weather, in which state do you live? Is that normal this time of the year?

Lucky you, Bruce!  We burn a lot of wood, but I have to scavenge - I have no trees in my small garden.  I'd love to have my own source.

Nothing is outdated if Americans use it.  We are the standard.   ;D

It's currently in the upper 40's.  It was supposed to rain but it's just cloudy.  I was going to run my dog but that's kinda warm coupled with the humidity.  Maybe I'll go for a short one.  There's no hunting Sunday's so I hate to miss the opportunity. 

It'll be in the teens again in a couple days.  It may or may not snow/rain/sleet/all of the above at the same time at any point, regardless of the temp.  Totally normal for New England this time of year.
