You moaning minnies!

We've had a spell of 10 days of ICE snow and sub zero temps- through the DAYTIME!
I'm scared to go down the driveway without a salt packet in my hand.
Takes a good 10 mins to get the ice off the car- (Garage full of furniture ready for shipping)
By the time you've gone in to warm your hands up, it's frozen up again even with de-icer!
Shopping? Forget it. Internet orders for now.
But i'm missing all the sales
I've started ordering my wine in by bulk delivery- If we're going to be snowed in- we're going to be happy!

Sorry you are all having a lousy Summer but spare a thought for us we are back in the UK. In the last 2 weeks we have had snow, rain, high winds and very heavy frosts. Looking forward to getting back to NZ despite the summer

Sounds exactly like the winter we had here. Actually, sounds a bit like summer so far

One of the valleys locally had a frost just the other week . The latest frost they have had in over 40 years, so we are told.

I like weather so it doesn't bother me TBH. Hats and sunglasses day in day out gets on my wick a bit, but I am hoping for far better weather come mid-January when our first ever visitors arrive. Hopefully it will have settled by then. Coming up through October to Christmas always seems to be unsettled.

I think it's quite amusing that over in the Australia forum they're complaining about the fact that iin 35 degrees it just doesn't feel like Christmas. All I can say is Swap yer!

After days of rain the temp is predicted to struggle to a high of 14 here today. The neighbours all have their fires going. I wouldn't mind except we've set up our real pine Christmas tree right next to the woodburner so that lighting it would result in a bit too much Christmas excitement. Ah well I can't possibly clean the windows in this rain. Where's that case of Chirstmas wine.

Well it's just started to bucket down here! I hope it'll clear by tomorrow, I've got 40 odd people (yes, odd people) for drinks tomorrow evening - where will I put them all if it rains?!

I'm sure this time last year we were in the throes of some gorgeous weather?

OMG Did it rain today. Next door were bailing out their garage. Even the ducks ran for cover under the carport.

Later, when the storm had died down we went to a local beach to watch those keen on surfing take advantage of the waves this weather brought.

Oh good. I'm glad it's not just us. Usually we are in drought at this time of year. It's weird. Lake Tekapo is full (!) when we are usually being threatened that if we don't cut back on electricity usage it will run out or double in price because the lake is dry.

According to the weather person, we only made it to 10 yesterday, not 14, so no wonder the kids were wrapped in their duvets all day and went to bed with hot water bottles. Our kids are complaining it doesn't feel like Christmas because it feels like winter. I almost wonder if we should shift the Christmas tree and roast chestnuts and mull wine over the woodburner.

I've been thinking the same.

went to bed with hot water bottles
We did that, but then my internal (hot flush) combustion kicked into play and I was heading for a blast from the freezer.

Was far too soggy for our village Carols in the Park with picnic, so it was decamped to the village hall. Not quite the same at all but still fun.
