    You can have our nasty cold rain - it is not even officially winter and it is darn freezing here ... brrrrr. Time to find a nice warm cave and go into hibernation for me!

    Mosaic: You can come visit me! It is officially summer here now.
    The weather is sunny, but is aspiring to be partly cloudy (and according to the weather forecast it'll start raining in 2h).
    Temperature is app. 27 C (app. 81 F), which actually is a bit higher than normal where I live.


    Edit to add:
    And yep, exactly 2h later, the sky is dark grey, the first thunder started rolling and I got in just in time before the rain poured down!

    It was in the nineties the last three days, low humidity, just like summer and loving it. Then today the temperature dropped thirty degrees, we got wild thunderstorms, and it will be this way for two days, plus barely in the seventies for the next ten days. Mother Nature is a really nasty broad!

    That storm system is heading this way. I really hope it gets here tonight, dumps whatever it's going to dump, and goes on its merry way because my husband took Friday off - we have plans to go to Six Flags with a friend.

    I hope so too because this weather here is planning on sticking around for a couple of days, but Friday is supposed to be better. But I would bring an umbrella anyway.

    After a few of the most gorgeous spring days imaginable, we got the kind of thunderstorms that had me watching the sky for tornado activity. We don't get tornados often here, but we do get them. Today is clear, pretty, and windy enough to take the hair off one's head.

    Thanks - I'd love to visit It is officially winter now and we had the coldest Autumn in 40 plus years ... nasty. Winter is shaping up to be too cold for my liking as well. Even my 2 cats won't go outside. They stick their noses out the cat door and quickly withdraw them and seek warm cosy spots to keep warm. I know your winters would be several times then some colder than here, but I am such a woosie when it comes to cold., - detest it with a passion!

    Weather changed- thunderstorms and ice-filled rain driven by a hard wind. Great- and I have to go out in 1915 era costume tonight. Hope I still look like something acceptable when I get there.

    How did it go? Did your 1915 costume survive?

    Previously today it was warm and sunny. It is still warm, but thunderstorms are now rolling over the region.
    And from my living room I've observed the lightening struck at at hill nearby at least 20 times the last 10 minutes (I started by writing 10 times.. and had to adjust the number as I wrote this post ).


    ETA: At 2200, there had been 5647 lightnings hitting ground in my region the last 20h which is quite a lot as there is usually only 200-400 a day when the thunderstorms hit... Incredibly only one house has been reported damaged so far (no fire thanks to flame retardant insulation, just one window smashed and some damage in electronic equipment) according to the newspaper. On the sad side, two horses were killed at another place when they where hiding under a three where the lightening struck.
    Thank God we're not flooded as other parts of Norway: All main roads connecting north and south have been closed at several places since Friday, and even some of the main roads connecting east and west are closed atm. There are severe damages to buildings and infrastructure due to the floodings and related land slides, but at least no loss of lives.

    Lovely weather you are having, Dai. My costume and I survived. Today is pretty nice so far, but thunderstorms are possible. We'll just take the rain suits and go out on the bikes anyway. If we wait for perfect weather, we'll never get out of here. Maybe the storms will hold off until evening.
