Nice weather, isn't it?
« on: January 10, 2010, 12:21:29 am »
Hey folks,

the weather is the classical topic for meaningless small talk, but I find it seriously interesting. I love following the weather conditions and observing weather phenomena. In a way I like almost all kinds of weather - sunny summer days, fog in the autumn, rain and thunderstorms, snow and ice. So let me start this topic for an exchange about our weather. :wOOt:

Right now we have Daisy - a low that's bringing quite a bit of snow and wind. There have been warnings of severe weather and even recommendations to stockpile food, drinking water, candles and electric torches. :blink: I wonder what all the fuss is about - isn't this simply the weather that should be in this region at this time of the year? Isn't this just one normal Middle-European winter after so many too warm ones?

What is it like in your place? Luth, I heard on the news that there is unusually much snow in the North of Spain. Are you affected?

Cheers!

Hi Markus!

I feel like in the lift trying to talk with some neighbour  :lol3:

-Oh, hello!
-Hello...
-...
-Cold weather, isn't it?
-Yup, pretty cold. That's weather changing, y'know...
-...mmmh... Yep, sure...

 :lol3:

Yes, you heard well: we have an uncommon cold and snowy weather. We are having snow at really low height above sea level... In fact, yesterday I was able to touch the snow, but not because I saw it fall: some cars coming from very near had it on their bonnet; the little mountains near us (very near, and low: perhaps 100 meters high?) were a little white, where the cars came from, I suppose. I've heard that today it can snow even lower, but I don't think it will happen here. Snow or not, temperatures are really low, near 0º, what is pretty unusual here. I prefer not to imagine in the mountains  :wacko: Apart from my town, almost all Catalonia (except really low height) is white now, and almost all North of Spain. Besides that, in Andalusia region (South of Spain) they have several heavy rains, and they had a lot of floods  :wacko:

Well, I've heard in London have been a lot of problems because of snow too, with a looot of flight cancellations and delays... What about other countries?

Oh Regina Frigoris,

there were pics in the news of Spanish shores under snow. So I guess not even you are safe from the white stuff. :afaid:

Right now we have a nice weather. It is a sunny day but with cold sea wind. I think we are in 18 or 20 c degrees.

Dear "neighbours" and far-away friends,

here we have a bit of crazy weather. A week ago (?) we had 35-40 degrees of difference between 2-3 days. I'm not used to have a headache because of weather changes, but that was too much even for me. :(

Apart from that, I'm fine with this weather. I have to wear much more clothes, but I like snow, and I think I've made peace also with coldness. (Thanks to my tile stove, for example.) The temperature goes like between -10 and +5 degrees, after its mood. :wink2: No wind usually, and today we have a bright sunshine. Sometimes we have mist, that I enjoy very much, and a few days ago I could see some mist-spots on the road that I've never seen before - it was fun to catch tiny little clouds near to the ground. :)

Oh, your weather changes really swiftly!!!!
And as for my land, the frost attacks with a new stroke! Today now (noticing that the sun set about 4 hours ago) it's being -22 deg.C.

Wow, that's pretty cold!

Over here all the beautiful snow is thawing. :bawl: But we might get some more cold days soon...

Cheers!

Sorry for delayed response (delay not caused by snow  :fish:) - I was in London for much of last week and there were travel problems on the trains as well as with flights.  However by the time I needed to leave London all was ok again.  Much of the snow across the country has now melted, but I believe more is forecast for later this week...

There was plenty of snow around during our London trip, but we all battled the cold with plenty of warming spirits  :drunk:

Weather here: nice, warm and cloudless.

Weather here last week: cold, gray, and rainy. There was a lot of snow in the mountains surrounding the city, and now the view of the volcanoes is quiet something! (On the other hand, a few people living of those mountains died frozen, which is more than something sad  :'( )

Hey folks,

Lava, old Sethian, no wonder you're fond of storms! :wink2:

Jorge, how much rain has fallen? Just a tiny little bit - or will it be enough to make the desert bloom?

Cheers!

Nice, Siren. :biggrin: Be sure to dress warm - even if I sound like your mum now, in this case she's right.  :wink2:

We're supposed to get -19°C tonight, and I'll head off for work long before sunrise. :wOOt:
