No big suprise...it's raining!
Just checked one of the local canals and it appears to be about 5 foot higher than normal, and in places the banks are 12 foot wider than normal. We have in the last two months had this reinforced with 150 tonnes of rubble, but I expect it to burst in the next day or two if the rain continues.

I expect the next village to me, to flood within that time...

I don't think so Ryan.  It has been colder here.

In 1989 we had temps in the low 20's and did have some snow at Christmas time.  It wasn't a pleasant experience.


My hibiscus trees froze! [:-'(]

I'd say we have between a dusting and an inch of snow on the ground! No 2 hour delay though. Darn.

No, I'm pretty sure they'll come back.  They have in the past, they were just really big and now it'll take a while for them to get that big again.  I may have lost my desert roses though.  I've been babying those for 2 years now...it may be 3.....I can't remember.  They took a hard hit and I'm not sure they'll survive.  They like it dry and hot.

It's nice out today.  In the 50's, but tomorrow it's supposed to be down in the 20's again.  I'm going to stop complaining though.  Extreme temperatures are very good for our business.

Since this meant to be a scientific website can I ask why none of you seem to be including units with the temperature measurements?
OK, I know you are going to say it's obvious from the context; no it's not. My dad could have said "I'd say zero is pretty cold. I have never met zero before!" when he first went to university; what he and a friend (also from Kenya) actually said to their new found friends was "I have never seen snow before".

BTW, -30C is well below 0F, I think it's about -22F which raises the question "Where are you that's so cold neilp?"

Karen, i don't think John intended any offence with his post, after reading it several times, i am positive he did not.
For some time i have been debating (with myself) if this topic would be more suited to the chat section, and i think it really should be moved there.
The topic itself, is a good one, and if sim wants to start a new topic in the environment section i would encourage him to. Members could then post a daily 'weather summery' giving their temperature, weather conditions, rainfall etc. This would make interesting reading as the years went by.

Sounds as if you are here in Texas - cold, windy and foggy At least the wind is from Northern Canada, not the Atlantic Ocean.

-30 c =________ F?

= minus 22 farenheit.


Today it's minus 47 farenheit......it's a bit chilly !

This bridge has arches, and you could pass through them in a barge...

Sorry if I accidentally caused any offence back there. It' just that, without a unit, people like me who usually deal in C and K get muddled when people talk in F.
