• Winter drags on...

    From Paul Hayton@3:770/100 to All on Thu Aug 17 20:17:05 2017
    Hi all.

    I hope that you are enjoying your summer (if in the northern hemisphere) as here in New Zealand Winter is rolling along. Snow down to 500 meters is forecast where I live this weekend. That said today was very mild and the
    temp got to 16 celcius which is really warm for this time of the year. I
    expect it will be back down to around 8 tomorrow.

    Best, Paul

    It's 88F (31.1C) at 71% humidity here in northeast Tennessee.

    I'd much be dealing with 61F (16C) myself! Even 46F (8C) would be welcome after dealing with this heat. (Full disclosure: I can handle cold much
    better than heat.)

    Summer is dragging on here. I am about to head North to hopefully get out
    of its grasp.

    We did actually get a week or so of a break where the temps were not half
    bad, but it is back to 90F+ now.

    I prefer Spring and Autumn and even Winter, if it does not get too far below
    0C often, to Hazy-Hot-Humid season.

    Yipes - too hot for me Sean.

    Me too... that's one of the reasons I like and choose to live in the part of
    my country that I do. Folks in the North Island of New Zealand look at us southern folk with disbelief at some of the temps we have when they are
    usually 10-12 degrees celcius warmer up there. I keeps them from moving down here :)

    Hi Mike,

    I was in the USA a few weeks back and spent some time in Houston, having experienced the 90F + first hand I feel your pain!

    That said coming back to these winter temps after that was also a shocker for me.

    our equipment here is showing that it is 103F (39.4C) @ 35% humidity... our sensor is mounted on the north side of the building roughly 5 feet below the awning roof and about 7 feet above ground level... no direct sunlight being the
    main goal... the awning is open on three sides to allow air flow and nice visibility... let's just say that it is effin H.O.T. out... can't wait for autumn/spring temps! :)

    It's actually not been too terribly hot this year where we are, most of
    the time, anyway.... and the humidity has mostly been bearable as
    well... We are starting to see some early signs of fall, too...

    Yup, a veritable heat wave for this time of year for y'all... Did you
    bring out the barbie grill....?

    I expect it will be back down to around 8 tomorrow.

    More seasonable, anyway... :) That's not too cold though, really....

    Nice to see you poking your head in here, by the way... ;) You've been missed... :)

    You're not wrong Mark.. I may get that here for 1 day out of 450 days... only if weather patterns blow some really hot winds across from Australia over the Tasman Sea.

    Today it's a high of 12 Celsius and a low of 7, next follow days highs and
    lows are 9/6 8/3 and 11/4

    Some trees are starting to bud and we have a few early plum trees out in pink blossom now... daffodils are coming up and a few flowering but it's early in the season..

    Hi Nancy :)

    It's like we're each looking in an opposites mirror of each other huh? I can say the same here expect in the context of Winter and early Spring :)

    said today was very mild and the temp got to 16 celcius which is really warm for this time of the year.

    Yup, a veritable heat wave for this time of year for y'all... Did you bring out the barbie grill....?

    No I think not :) It can be four seasons in one day here. By the time the BBQ is hot enough it would likely be hailing :)

    I expect it will be back down to around 8 tomorrow.

    More seasonable, anyway... :) That's not too cold though, really....

    No but cold enough for me. The fire is on and I am lugging in wood each day.

    Nice to see you poking your head in here, by the way... ;) You've been missed... :)

    Thanks, nice to be here :)

    Best, Paul

    It's all part of living where I live but I am used to dry heat. Putting up with 100F with 3-8% humidity out in the Mojave Desert is one thing. This humidity is something else but that's what you get when you have the
    maritime tropical airmass sitting over you pumping in moisture straight from the Gulf of Mexico. But the temperature will be dropping soon as we'll be falling into autumn (yes, pun intended).

    Me too... that's one of the reasons I like and choose to live in the
    part of my country that I do. Folks in the North Island of New Zealand look at us southern folk with disbelief at some of the temps we have
    when they are usually 10-12 degrees celcius warmer up there. I keeps
    them from moving down here :)

    People love the heat here. Thankfully I go from my air conditioned pad to
    my air conditioned car to my (somewhat) air conditioned job so it's not as
    bad as it could be, I guess. As a stand-up comedian friend of mine says,
    "What do you do when it's hot? Peel off your skin?" :D

    Oh, yeah, I bet that was a shock. I am traveling North for a few days.
    The weather forcast for the areas I am traveling to sounds like it will be cooler there for highs than we've had lately for lows. I am having
    difficulty deciding what to pack. :)

    That'll keep you warm... ;) both the fire and the lugging... <G> Is
    the fire the only heat for the house...?

    Nice to see you poking your head in here, by the way... ;) You've

    Thanks, nice to be here :)

    I saw from another message that you've been travelling in the States...
    I suppose that might have had an influence on when you could be
    online... ;)
