We're expecting highs of 23*C for the next two days with rain :P Usually, our summer hovers around 30, though.
And most of our water comes from wells, too; the county's entire water supply is from ground water. (For now, at least; population growth will probably see a pipeline from Lake Erie in our future.)
Right now it's 20C 55%. In January it'll be between 37C and 45C, and 10%.
Evera'body listen to what da' bat say!
Or as Major Dennis Bloodnok would describe it "It's HELL in there!"
I found a restaurant in town that has a good 1/3 of its menu listed as vegetarian. I don't know anyone who has been there but it's probably worth a try. It seems to be Indianish.
(The foxaroo's ears rise up)
Tell me it's fully air-conditioned and it will add another reason to make me wanna go back for a visit.
...a VERY good reason for me to visit Dubbo is because there are no people there fantasising about me being able to attend future Ponycons. Heh!
Don't know about A/C. I'll have to check.
Oh an *INDIAN* restaurant! I didn't catch on to the Bloodnok connection.
Nice one Batty! :D
OH! Oh oh! Haa haa haagh. It's hell in there.
Our current weather forecasts indicate that it'll be around 24C for the next few days, which is nice considering I'll be outdoors for one reason or another every day of the school-week...
(I can survive a day outdoors when it's raining, what with my umbrella and trench coat, but it can get a little bit warm in there)
Has the weather over there been peculiar this year?
(peculiar as in unlike it usually is for the time of year. For example, our summer was rather cool and didn't get warm until August, which is unusually late)
We did have one unusual feature, there was a day during winter that it actually became cold enough to make *ME* uncomfortable. I don't recall that ever happening previously, I'd always expected this would only happen if I visited a place where it had the potential to snow.
Apparently on that day it reached minus 6 celsius overnight in the city.
As mentioned in February, we had a surprisingly cool summer due to the unusual rainfall (please note that Batty didn't receive as much rain as we did on the coast). This is probably why winter was a little more intense than normal.
I don't expect to enjoy a summer like that again. :(
damn the high here yesterday was 53F :( and for the next 8 months its going to get a lot colder :(
i wish i could send you a glacier or something
Ooooh!!! If ONLY! :D
I'm sure that's going to be a prime use for teleporters when they're invented.
I've often wished it were possible to build a time machine in the form of a doorway leading six months into the future that you could blow the cold air into your home for summer.
Yas, I'd be happy to send you some of the ice and snow we're heading into...
Out of curiosity ol' lupine, in Salt Lake City what height are you above sea level?
Heh! The answer is in the form of a "yahoo answer!" :D
Nice! Thanks! You're a kilometre up above the waves then. Utah needn't worry as much about the greenhouse effect then.
When I lived in a part of Newcastle, New South Wales I was told that the district was actually slightly BELOW sea level. I'm not sure that was correct, however a nearby suburb had a stormwater channel which at high tide was full of sea water.
Foxaroo, GREAT SALT LAKE BASE AND MERIDIAN Latitude 40° 26'04" - Longitude 111° 54'00" Altitude (sidewalk) 4327.27. I can walk for about an hour and a half and be at 6151 in the hills behind my house, or drive for 25 minutes to Alta ski resort at 8530, and then take the lift to Grizzly Gulch at 10,500.
