Welcome to life in Wales. It rains every, single, day.

Sorry, I didn't realise the BBC iplayer was only viewable from within Britain. I guess they assume that we've all paid our licence fee.

Umm... suppose I don't pay my license fee. Will I still be able to use BBCiPlayer? I shall tell the bank to cancel the direct debit, and find out. :P

That's my point: I suppose they can't tell whether you've paid your licence fee or not when you use iPlayer, but you're more likely to have done if you live in Britain.

All the snow melted last week, and it was certainly a long winter, and a rather windy one as well. So now the river is about to burst it's banks into the main street, and the creek by my house is swollen. :)

What's nice though, is it was 55 degrees Fahrenheit today. Maybe, just maybe, I can go hiking in a month and a half, given most of the snow melts off the mountains. The most amazing part though, is the trees have buds now, and there's tulips popping up all over our property. (I have no idea what they're doing in Nevada)

We went to the beach and it snowed. (As well as hailed, rained, and sleeted.) They were HUGE flakes; like snowballs, but we were watching from inside the pub so we weren't terribly drenched. It didn't stick well because it had just rained and it also wasn't really freezing out.

On the drive home, I asked my parents if it had snowed in Portland. "Probably not," they said, as we took the boulevard to our house. But it had, and it continued to snow and hail sporadically the rest of spring break. We used to hit the 70s in spring break! *snif*

We still have snow on the ground, despite the 60 degree weather today. First day in 5 that it didn't snow/hail/sleet though. Sorry about your spring break, I saw pics on the news showing the coast. How was the highway over the coast range?

We followed the Columbia home because we were certain it had snowed in the pass.

We've had snow on the ground for six full months, which I might not mind... IF I lived in Alaska.

This is mother nature's cruelest April Fool's joke ever. Here's hoping y'all are having a better April morning.

Wimp! ;) There are those of us who define summer as "3 months of bad sledding." In that spirit, my sister sent me this a while back. I thought some of us here would find it hilarious.

Where I live, the winter was pretty warm and almost snowles for most of its duration. Then, yesterweeks Wednesday the temperature dropped 50 centimeters of snow just fell from the sky. I made the mistake of coming to this computer class where I normally write things like this, and when I tried to go home trough a small road that's normally in good shape, my car got stuck in the snow and I had to ring my dad to bring me a shovel. It was quite hard to get the Lada going again.

Geez, it must be freezing over in Finland if you're finding a little bit over 0 warm, where as I find anything under 23 starts getting cold...

I know it, but I'm one of those people who would love living at the equator. If it never got below 80F I'd be happy. I start to shiver at 69 degrees.

I'm right with you Jewelz! It was 55 last night and I was freezing my buns off.

You should move to Arizona. :P

:Edit: Wrong temp.

It's supposed to be cold in winter! :) In summer, 23 degrees would be a nice, and it's actually not a very unnatural temperature in june, july or august.

Anyway, last winter I was studying in Leeds, England, and it was not very different from this winter here.

FYT. Prescott got snow several times this winter, and Flagstaff was just cold and snowy enough to make it a trip to it the only time Dikiyoba had to wear pants instead of shorts all winter.

Yep. I think that "Michigan Temperature Conversion Chart" I posted makes that kind of obvious.

If it never got below 80F I'd incinerate. With my hot blood, 69 is actually fairly comfortable for me.

Welcome to life in Wales. It rains every, single, day.[/URL].

Wow! You live in Wales! Where abouts are you? I live near Machynlleth, Mid-Wales, and you're right - it rains almost every day. Last summer was dreadful.

I'm from approximately...(points to spot on right palm, just below the thumb)...here, about 50 miles north of Detroit.

I'm kind of curious as to why do you (or anyone else here) would want to know this.

Ohio can't make up its mind. Of course, its residents have accepted this fact. There's a saying here: "If you don't like the weather, don't worry. Wait a few minutes and it'll change."

Last week, it was sunny and in the 70s. Yesterday, the temperature peaked at 40, and it rained all day.
Yesterday was also the last time I will ever walk 3 miles in 40 degree weather without a jacket...

I miss Jersey.

I know what you mean about the weather, it's just as crazy here. And we have the same saying.

The weather here (SF Bay Area) is normally good, but it's also been weird lately. Yesterday the temperature was in high 80s, and today it's in the 50s.
