Hey, yeah! I got to go see if the ice is hard enough!
Ice fishing here starts around Christmas. And mid january you can drive the car on the ice right next to the site. You can fish with the door of the car open and seated comfortably.
Some fisherpeople may enjoy a few brewskies while there at it.

A few? Everybody has two cases of two four to sit on at a proper height.

The weatherman on local TV had to abandon his car and take a cab to work.

Everyone advised to stay at home or take transit (as if it isn't busy enough already).
You could just take the flying train.

We are definitely having a White Christmas here in the Icebox. There is about 18 inches on the ground and 6 to 10 more coming Tuesday and Wednesday. How much snow does that fat bastich need in order to land a sleigh on my roof? :sheesh:

and one really really stupid young guy died, because he thought it would be a good idea to get a tan by lying in full sunlight on a park bench at 2 in the afternoon on a 40° day. we just don't know how to handle the heat, except for the people living in the south who are used to it. even they thought it was a bit warm that summer.
We get a hell of a lot of those same young Frenchmen, and their neighbours to the west and north (that is, many European backpackers), visiting us and enjoying the same tanning practices on the beach here. You spot them later on and the next day(s) walking around like they've been riding a horse for days, and holding their arms out from their sides like they're carrying a couple of invisible beer barrels. Well, that, and the red so red (except for the whitest-of-white "tan lines") it burns the retinas almost as much as it must be burning them. A couple of hours "tanning" on the beach - a week or so staying inside or making mad dashes from small patch of shade to small patch of shade. Crazy.

Today, we're pretty much the same as yesterday - hard, blue sky, cicadas, 29C, lightest of breezes, swim, drink, lather, rinse, repeat. I've a migraine though, making it far less pleasant.

Cheers,
Marc

So we´re having frequent temperature drops and rises of about 35C in this thread. No wonder, Marc´s having a migraine. Personally I would prefer Australia´s 29C to our 7C and rain, rain, rain

The weather is definitely weird here. We went out at mid-day. Temperature was 34 degrees and the fog was very thick. Hubby took me out to dinner tonight and I noticed that though it was still foggy, it was much farther off the ground, though the temperature was still 35 degrees. After dinner and a short trip to the grocery store to finish up the shopping for the Christmas feast, I noticed that the temperature had risen to 45 degrees. Not what one expects to happen after dark.

After another bright, sun-shiny day of about 27C, and a lovely afternoon swim in the pool (pool water temperature, about 28C, sun-warmed), we nearly got some light storms this evening. We're expecting 30C tomorrow, and to nearly get some light storms in the evening too. I should stop repeating myself, because this pretty much describes all of summer (except the "nearly" comes with more certainty as summer progresses, and the "light" changes to "Well, Thor seems pretty farked off this evening, doesn't he? I hope the roof stays on and the house doesn't leak too much").

If it matters any, if I wasn't living here I'd be dreaming of a white Christmas I've never had.

Cheers,
Marc (about off to bed)
