we bought this house in January - height of summer. It was so hot in the summer in the lounge, even for me, it was toooo hot in there. And typical of a 60's NZ house: IT IS BLOODY FREEZING NOW!
Roll on summer

We had bad storms (again) last night, lots of rain/wind. I took Bo out for a pee this morning and found all my newly planted seedlings all over the patio floor! Wouldn't mind, but I had saved those seeds from my last trip home (4 yrs ago) they were all British flowers!

Muggy here but not as bad as the 90% Humidity it was yesterday.

We had nearly 24 hours of storms with a few hours break in the middle, They were training through in a straight line, loads more rotation towards the end and a touch downs in the far northern suburbs of Chicago-land near the Wisconsin border. The winds came out of nowhere last night as well, it wasn't a gentle rise up to high winds, they just came and took the trees by surprise ripping whole limbs off.

3 m/o slept through most of it. What a trooper.

Same here M is helping on an Ike damaged house and I have to keep reminding them to have water breaks. Putting a roof on in 98 degree heat is crazy

Ten minutes after I wrote this I got a call from our friends to tell me M had fallen off the roof and to meet them at the ER, did I panic....hell yes.

Six hours later and we are home, he has a badly fractured heel on his left foot, a twisted and swollen right knee and a sprained left wrist. His foot is splinted and we have to see the bone-guy on Monday as he may have to have surgery. Right now he is zonked out on pain meds and I am just calming down from the panic. Good weekend so far....

Bless his heart, and of course the worst bit is it will be awhile before he's on his bike.

Here's to an less than tough recovery for both of you.
