Sky, hurts my shattered eye.
Hope I didn't catch a sunburn.

Meanwhile, in England..... like Piglet in 'Winnie the Pooh' I have been "Entirely surrounded by Water"
The ford on the road into our village, usually 75mm at time of image 1800mm

At least our bungalow was unflooded unlike many homes and businesses in my nearest city, despite many millions spent on flood defence:

effing, effing, effing weather!!  ::(

God, it's been raining since September, and everyone is so $%^&*" off with it...grrrr!

And it's soooo much fun with a Springer Spaniel, mud, mud glorious mud.... I'm moving to northern Spain, great weather, people, food and motorcycle country.

I would love a good drought, for the rest of the year.

Here's hoping

Had to put bowls under the lounge windows as the high winds drove the rain through the outside bricks and plaster. For a while I had an inside waterfall. No rainbow though. We also recently had a mouse infestation. They occupied up to the tenth floor flats seeking warmth and food away from the bad weather. Roll on the summer.

Geez Mike you look not happy :) That looks wet and miserable.

Over here the summer has not given up, and I still scooter to work and back in shorts and t shirt. This past weekend was overcast, and although the wind blew a bit from time to time, not a drop of rain fell. Of course on the bright side, it was perfect weather to take "The Toaster" out in and drop the roof. And by the evening, two perfectly burned slices of white bread got out of it :)

Thanks for rubbing it in my face :P
I'm glad that you've got the perfect weather for the toaster now and you've got my wholehearted, sincerest envy.
If you'd be living in germany, this would be the most important toaster part right now:

I can definitely recommend South Africa for this time of the year (and probably any other, too).

Post by: Shakaali on February 26, 2020, 11:55:13 AM
Yep, I find this weather pretty nice, too. February is usually the coldest month down here, average temperature being about -10° C and more than a metre of snow. February 2020 average temperature is around 0° C and no snow.

However, not all like this weather. For instance our local ski centre has been open for about a week this winter. No snow, no skiing.  8)

We are not victims of any surreal environment issues in April.
This winter has been hard with a lot of snow . Roads closed and everything a bit more aggressive than normal. Whats unusual is the interruptions of heavy rain inbetween all the snowing earlier in the winter
Now we got another white blizzard coming in , blizzard is not correct more like 12 to 18 m/ sec

We got two. And a frequent visitor they bring in. I think I have carried it out 19 times. It have learned to seek refuge with me and come as soon as possible to me. 
I call him Freddie the mouse. And he walks right into my hand

A little update. From 700 mm snow in this weekend we are now seeing
a sign of snow melting. Springtime?

Today I had my IceCream in the ruins of the Siebelwerke next to a parking lot where I had a break from
mauling my weekly shopping preps. Could nip 10 Minutes sun and let it warm me up.

Take care of you all

It's getting considerably better here later.
Here's a couple of images from my today's bicycle ride to fight the Corona "lockdown".

We have the weather, we have the countryside, but that asphalt is priceless for biking.  ;D
Title: Re: Our lovely weather in February
Post by: SAS~Storebror on April 16, 2020, 12:18:35 AM
That asphalt isn't a cycle track - such tracks are shitty here like everywhere else.
It's a very busy country road.
The reason why it's empty on the picture isn't because of Corona lockdown either, it's rather kind of "cheating" that it looks that empty, see picture of the situation below:
(https://i.ibb.co/nCXyx3Q/asphalt.jpg)

Viewpoint is marked on the map and up right you see the roadworks which block the road every couple of minutes, that's why :D
