ARRRRGH! I am sitting here with the windows open in the middle of February; and the house temp. has crept up...and up...and up, till it now reads 65(F). I am roasting. SO unfair! mad So far I am refusing to turn on the A/C, but there is going to be a day very soon where I think I'll have to. 70F is way too warm. frown

It's getting that way here too. From now it goes onto excrutiating heat in the month of May and then in the month of June come the monsoons when in Goa, at least, everything grinds to a halt. No tourists come during the rainy season and businesses close for two months till the rains stop. So now good weather for us will be only from September onward.

"Okay it's not that bad" she said, fearing the wrath of her country men. The monsoon season is said to be the season of love (not slush and muck - love). I'd much rather read monsoon inspired poems than actually weather the rains. I am glad I am not writing this on "another subcontinent" message board. I would be tarred and feathered.

I am thinking Fiji or Tahiti would be nice.

I wanna move up north!

our huge, high snowbanks, which themselves make driving on our narrowed streets hazardous, have finally been melting down over the last few days.

but this morning it started to snow once again. it has been snowing all day [note time] and will continue deep(!) into the coming night - thirteen inches are currently being predicted. this winter may never end! I wanna move to Hawaii!!

I'm with you, Jackie. Where I am, south-central coast, it rarely gets warmer than 70F, and then only in late July and August. On the other hand, The winters here (this is just on the shelf below the bluff, not much above sea level, where the city is) flop back and forth across the freezing point, so we get snow, melting, re-freezing, more snow, rain, more freezing, etc., so lots of ice to walk and drive on. It occasionally goes below 0, but doesn't make a habit of it. In winter, regardless of the temperature, when I get into the car with my beloved wife, she always has a roaring fire going in there, and I have to negotiate.

Snowing today.

Not for me. I usually measure temps not by f or c but by
how far above or below 70 deg they are. That is the norm.
