15 C ( 59 F ) today after 37 C ( 98 F ) yesterday .
We've had winds for weeks and it was near 90 today. Something isn't right.
Well a 20 degree difference in two days is rather odd even for us. Before that we had a tropical thunderstorm and it wasn't even a hot day ? I haven't had a good bean harvest in 3 years as the weather is to inconsistent. Somethings up.

I'm freezing my bean harvest right off. Snowing again. Not that cold but wet and it just cuts right through everything.
The Santa Ana winds have finally calmed down. It was blowing for weeks.

More snow in the Sahara.
Same here Antarctic winds in the middle of summer one day 40 C next day 13 C.
The weather in my area has been overall colder than it has been in recent winters past, but we've had a warm day (if you want to call it that) here and there...Lately there's been a lot of tree trimming and tree cutting done in my area by the county and power company, this has indicated to me that they are preparing for February which has seasonally been our month for ice storms...
Recently finished a book Lawrence in Arabia and another about the North African campaigns in early WW2 and it seems that yup, you can freeze to death in the middle of a huge desert. I'll take these brochures out of my travel possibilities profile folder.
Egad, does it normally get that hot in Tasmania? You're only a few hundred miles away from Antarctica, right? I hope you're not in one of those regions that is so cool, even in the summer, that no one has A/C.
Yes next stop from here is Antarctica , it seems as the years go by it is more hotter on some days than normal. We never got Thunderstorms here much either with torrential rain but we seem to now. We can have 4 seasons in one day here sometimes. Its sunny, then it rains , then it snows in the middle of summer . I have seen that happen in the South West Wilderness area. Usually its caused by an Artic Blast from Antarctica. I don't have air con just leave both doors open to let the breeze thru the house at night. We have 2 hot ones coming up tomorrow and the next day 40 C ( 104 F )
It's been under 15 degrees Fahrenheit for days and now we're getting socked in by 12-24" of snow. The TV and radio stations have been in full chortle as if this has never happened before.
Naturally, I have to go to work. Annoying than anything else. My truck's a 4x4 and we're not out in the sticks and it's a very short drive. More worried about the snowplow in the parking lot crunching my vehicle than anything else. Going to go clear the couple of inches that have already piled up, will do it probably twice more before I go to bed tonight. Gotta move to a place where this doesn't happen.
From USPS today:
"Your package has a delivery exception. We were unable to attempt delivery of your item on February 1, 2021 at 10:09 am in BRONX, NY 10469 due to hazardous or unsafe weather conditions. Your item will go out for delivery on the next business day as conditions permit."
I expected as much. I was surprised by an earlier message that said "Out for Delivery".
10469 eh? Some extremely nice areas around there. I used to spend a lot of time down on Eastchester Rd and Waters Place a bit south and where there are plenty of not-so-nice areas. Done the I84/I684/I95 shuffle too many times at all hours in all weather. Don't miss it. I really didn't care for Westchester Ave under the elevated subway line and all the steel girders - wiped the side mirror off my truck on one of them in a blink.
Got to work, stayed an hour and bolted along with everybody else about 11 when they locked the doors. I guess they can't close the store entirely but there's only one or two employees roaming around in there.
Had someone ask me for a lawn mower this morning. Blizzard raging, the man wins the Proactive Prize today.
The nicest area of all is the Botanical Gardens. As a kid, I visited there often. But about 25-30 years ago they began requiring a fee for entry.
Up to my knees in snow. I spent several hours digging and snow blowing yesterday and woke up to find like, another foot of snow in those areas. I've always fantasized about having one of those really big scaryass WW2 flame throwers for this sort of thing ......
What the hell was he going to do with it?
