    Yum yum. The youngest has gone vegetarian so we are all largely vegetarian too but sometimes I miss MEAT!!!

    Here we are having a mild heatwave and need an umbrella to protect us from the blazing sun when we walk around town. Luckily Auckland always has a bit of a sea breeze.

    The concept originally stated by Noel Coward that "Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the mid-day sun" has acquired a new meaning, it appears. But "New Zealand" really wreaks havoc with the metre ...

    A mild heatwave would hit the spot right about now.

    Airline schedules remain totally screwed up with most places still closed on Monday: local governments, schools and the federal government. Only limited public transportation tomorrow, though I don't know whether the Smithsonian and various monuments will be open.

    I'm assuming that Luiz is NOT going to try and drive to NYC on Monday. We need him in one piece!

    I was wondering about that myself. I think I-95 will be open and I know that NYC is again allowing cars on the streets, but even so, he might have trouble finding a parking garage with available space.

    A friend of mine could not be dissuaded (very typical) from driving to NYC before the storm last week to attend the annual Winter Antiques Show (maybe the best in the country). He was having a great time at the show, but told me he moved his car out of the parking garage and on to a neighborhood street to avoid the $65/day parking fee. He said he was planning to borrow a shovel from a local doorman - kind of like he was talking about a routine 8" snowfall. Plus, he lives in Baltimore, which also had 29". He was planning to drive back today, but I can't imagine that he'll be able to get out of there until at least the middle of the week.

    Plus, the weatherman this morning indicated the potential of another serious storm brewing for this coming weekend. Too soon to tell if it will stay off the coast or veer inland and hit east coast cities all over again.

    My walking has come to a standstill with all this weather. Most sidewalks haven't yet been cleared and the biking/running/walking trails that make living where I do such a good location are at the bottom of the snow-clearing priority list.

    Wow, 29"! I can't even imagine waking up to so much snow. The most extreme climatic incident I have to deal is... some rain.

    We just had three unusually mild weeks for this time of the year, rarely above 25C. Today, though, typical January weather: 32C in the peak of the afternoon and a brief but heavy thunderstorm shortly before sunset.

    32C sounds - even with a bit of rain - just about right.

    I live on the coast in Cornwall anything above 25 degrees would turn the place into minor paradise like it was in September for a little while.

    Storm Imogen knocked the power out for the whole neighbourhood.

    I hate wind.

    Only one phase restored at the moment, lucky me, my house is on that phase!

    That's great! I hate - hate - being without power.

    Now you can invite all the neighbors over for an opera party!

    The mild first weeks of January were just a tease. It is now 3h27 AM and 26C. This is really cruel.
