And......here I am sitting in the desert southwest with 12 inches of snow in the front yard.....that has melted down from the 24 inches we got a week ago. Another small storm came through last night giving us 2 new inches. The temperture is 30 degrees at mid-morning. It seems the weather trends are really different this year. Enjoy your spring-like weather!
We've had some pretty wacky weather here as well, it was like 13C on Christmas Day (you have to remember I live in Australia and it's Summer!) It actually SNOWED it some of the mountain areas on Christmas Eve, it barely snowed during Winter, and for it to snow during the middle of summer was...bizarre to say the least.
But yeah, this Summer the lowest was 5C and the highest was 42C, to have such a huge range in temps is very odd.
And my town only had 127mm of rain last year, our average is around 550mm, with our next lowest at around 250mm, so people in the city are actually starting to understand the problems that farmers have (I live in a farming community).
Here is summer too, so the temperature stands in 25 to 35C, and that´s because Sao Paulo is not so hot...
If one just goes to the Northeast region or to Rio, will find temperatures raising to 46C.
I hate living in a country so hot, it´s terrible.
Liloo doesn´t have problems with that. But my chinchilla almost died last week, with convulsions. We are lucky because we have a friend that is vet and came to our house at midnight to save him. Because here in Brazil these types of animals are not so known, so we couldn´t find a 24H Vet Hospital that could attend my chinchilla (and I live in the biggest city in Brazil! Imagine a smaller one). They just attend dogs and cats...pretty awful.
Az has been very cold also. Freezing almost every night, then the 50-60's doing the day. We have had some rain in the valley snow in the mountains.
I have no heat so myself and all my critters have been bundleling up. My piggie's have all been in their cuddle cups and tents.
This week has been freezing in Manitoba. The other day is was -34C. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think that's like -30F, right? Very cold anyways plus with the windchill makes it seems much lower. To go outside, I had to wear so many clothes that I could hardly walk.
Here in NW Arkansas it's SUPER icy all over everything but the roads. It's supposed to snow more this weekend and has not been over freezing since last week.
Pretty much all over has been evacuated at least once because the ice is causing so much damages there are power outages everywhere. Ours was out since Saturday morning and just got back up yesterday. We've been staying elsewhere because it's just way too cold.
I would really love for some of this "warm" that you all are talking about! I've almost forgotten what it's like. lol
