Hi everyone, by the way
Welcome to Whangaparaoa. So it's your fault that the weather has turned to custard then.

I wish it would turn to custard here. We have had 1mm rain in the last month and everything is semi parched. As usual farmers are predicting doom.

Hi everyone, by the way
Welcome and lovely to see you here.

Yup. Weather is a bit poo on and off at the moment. Feb is normally a settled month.

We're dodging between scorching whilst trying to weed the section and retreating undercover with black skies overhead. It does seem to be 4 seasons in one day a bit this year.

I have been here since December 2004 and the weather has been mostly poor we're almost always in hope that things will improve.

This summer has been a bit shocking so far! If it's not chilly/raining there's a howling nor-wester.

Come on NZ, sort it out! I've become accustomed to higher standards

Come visit Toronto to cool off, for in the last couple of weeks all hell has frozen over.

Really warm though here today blue sky with +5c which is really weird compared to the normal temperature for this time of year or a few days ago for that matter
