and tell me if your weather is doing anything crazy. We've had a nasty thunderstorm sitting on our town for the past hour or so. Flash flooding has started up in some parts of town, and my wife and I are sitting around reading web forums. TV keeps cutting out, but at least the DSL still works. So how's the weather where you are?

Hot and sunny. Oddly though, the sun doesn't set until 23:11.

Sunset at 23:11 ?
Is that including the wind-chill factor ? [Wink]

No, but it does include DST.

With the sun setting at 23:11 it sounds like you could do without DST and still have plenty of D to go around!

Rain, thunder, lightning for the past four days. I saw some guy outside building a huge boat muttering something about "What's a cubit?" [Smile]

It's sunny and windy over here, but a few days ago the weather went completely bipolar on us...I think it forgot to take its medication, or something.

Hrm...maybe it was just a giant promotional stunt for The Day After Tomorrow...

Sunny and 18C (65F) here today, which is unseasonably warm for the last day of Autumn.

/me wishes it would rain, bloody drought looks like it will never break, another El Niño year coming up.....

Cold - the temperature is forcast to get to double figures today (celcius that is) but whether or not it'll get there remains to be seen, with a gale force wind warning - nothing unusual about that for this time of year. [shake head]

Last night was the worst. There were reports of up to 10 tornados touching down in my area. Hail, lots of high speed wind and buckets and buckets of rain. The power was out for 10 hours. This morning there were a lot of broken limbs from trees and several were uprooted from the ground! [Eek!] A huge ball of lightning hit close to the house. When I say ball, I mean that. I didn't see a streak coming from the sky, just an explosion of light that looked like a star going nova, with a incredible window shaking clap of thunder afterwards. Kerry was really shook up, but we managed to survive and didn't really get the worst of it. [Smile]

Heh, no ball lightning here, fortunately. One of our neighbors had a tree split in half and block his driveway. Another had a tree fall and block her front door. Her cat didn't seem to mind.

Yesterday was the first day of Winter here, and we had our maximum temperature for the day at 10 PM, that's fairly unusual.
