It looks positively balmy down there but it’s grim up here on the Border.


#3569

Have you got snow, Doug. We just had a minor flurry.


#3570

Not yet John, just sleet last night and ice this morning.


#3571

Not much snow here, but very cold and icy conditions and dramatic skies.


#3572

Not a day for driving cars out of carparks, eh? :heart: :joy:

#3577

Sorry, I didnt think to mention, its just over the hill from the University, where the SSi party was last year. So its a new road dropping back down from the Uni to the Cattle Market and Show ground on the road to St Clears.

Ah…try 113f or 45c and humid… Uffern :sweat::hot_face:


#3579

Dim diolch! Is that normal weather or unusual for where you are? :sweat:

By contrast, right now it is 23F/-3C, with 20-25 mph (32-40 kph) winds, so it feels like 8F/-13C :cold_face: It’s going to be this windy all day :wind_face:


#3580

Wow. Where are you, Sean?


#3581

And here it is just COLD. Not as bad as last week, but today about 14F (-10C) with a wind chill about 3F (-16C), but since we had freezing rain a few days ago, the trees have been really pretty in the sunlight!

It’s becoming what seems to be regular new summer patterns, according to the meteorologists.
Did anyone see this article last year?


#3583

…and now I know the time difference is approximately eleven hours. Good to know for Slack.


#3584

That was a frightening read! Stay cool and be careful!


#3585

diolch.
Today is a lovely 25c/77f in comparison to last week. There are raging floods and fires eldewhere.


#3586

Glad the weather is better now…stay away from the rest! Too bad the raging floods can’t be used to put out the fires!


#3587

Part of the problem in two states is that the fires are threatening the drinking-water storage by way of run-off carrying ash and debris. We are awaiting delivery of a Royal Doulton water filtration system :+1:
