How's weather at your place?

Thus is very alarming, Sue. Do you sleep in the room with the air conditioner? Can it keep up wuth the heat in that room at least? And is electric power reliable at your home? Time to move farther south?
Its all good, loungeroom a/c works fine, struggles in extreme heat (becomes a personal cooler) but better than nothing. Yes, electricity seems to be fine here, no blackouts so far. Last one was in June 2007 and that was the month of extreme storms and a beached bulk carrier. Thanks for your concern :)

Glad that it seems like the worst is over for our friends down under.
I grew in the Dallas area of Texas and remember one summer in the 1980's. There was a 30+day stretch of 100+ F day in a row.
It was still over 100F at 10pm a night! It was horrible.

Upper 20s F and snowing again. 4-5" in last couple days. Pretty mild actually here and for time of year. Craving warm sun shine days. Cabin fever!

Correction. I just came back in, and more like 8-9". Shoveled path to car and dipisty. Maybe the snow plow will come today, ...or not!

Here in Milwaukee, we are about to set another in a string of record high temperatures. It's been pretty mild all winter, but the last week here has been ridiculous. We're supposed to be shoveling snow, not complaining about the heat.
