Hi all, I hope my first posting isn't too boring, in Melbourne it's been hot & dry, 40 degree heat, level 3 water restrictions, water catchments down to 30 % full. So I thought I should snap this before I forget what it looks like:G

Stop complaining. Try -10 deg C outside like what I have now.
I would love your kind of weather

Two days ago it was -20C with a -30+ wind chill, this morning it is +2C and rain. Here if you blink you may miss an entire season, the temperature has changed as much as 25 degrees in a 24 hour period (up or down). I am now sitting here watching the rain beat against my back window (50km/h winds gusting to over 70km/h).

I would not trade places however, it is easier to hide from the cold than from that heat.

Edit - add picture - here is what two seasons look like when they occur at once.

And as usual I could havecopiedyour post and made it my own. Creative way of showing it! (the weather) We just got the electricity back after a few hours cut off, but it's likely to go tonight again, new storm is on its way.

Neat picture of wet stuff! We went from snow at 1,000 feet to 70 plus F temperatures in 2 days. While the snow at low levels is unusual, big swings in isn't. Today I wandered around in short sleeves - two days ago I was wearing down parkas - go figure.

The funny thing is that in September the Red Cross was set up in our area because of fires (most of us hill dwellers were evacuated). Last week one of the local water districts had a valve on a water tank freeze, knocking out water for two days to a fair number of homes. The Red Cross set up a water distribution and shower points for those affected. Either fire or ice - take your pick!

And yes - I like snowshoeing so I'd rather have the cold than the extreme heat that Australia is suffering through.
