Well I guess the weather in our country is just like the economy... worse and worse... it's already December and the snow just doesn't want to come... or if it does it goes away straight... :disagree:

There's snow frequently regular. :)

Together with his brother ice, in this time of year. They come and wish you Christmas. ;)

Yeah, but last Christmas I was in New Orleans/Bahamas/Miami... they don't have a word for snow... :disagree:

Relax... once the ice at the poles melts and a new ice age comes they'll get one fast...

Actually they had snow 2 times in NO in the last 30 years... but I guess it's something like rain in some parts of the South America. I read somewhere that there a place over there which holds the record for the longest time without rain... 400 years.

Dear, dear, today it got almost cold (19ºC lol), oh, because yesterday, it was around 29ºC at night, a very humidic and hot day, most cloudy. It looked like we were in a giant panel, being cooked by a Gaint Mutant Whale as we did our chores.

Today it was completely the opposite - well, the clouds remain, but it got cold and rainy all of a sudden. The wind also makes it impossible to walk carrying umbrellas: when you must direct your umbrella in front of you, almost poiting it down for you not to get wet, it means that there's something just wrong...

Where are you living Panda? Start with -10°C and go lower. Visit Russia if you wish to take the sip of geniune iciness. :devious:

(Now ponder, I'm living in the middle of Europe and few past days we had +7~-17°C, luckily it returned to normal. Meaning white thawing sea.)

I only enjoy drinking cold water - and grape juice. :tongue: A bit of vodka is also nice....and tequila, but not cold.

But that 'cold' I spoke above is gone already and yesterday I got a sunburn on my head (I shaved all my hair off - so much for a good luck for me :cry: ) and I got blisters here and there, not speaking of all my skin becoming redder and redder as if I had never been struck by sun. I should have used something to block the sun when I went to play soccer at 11 A.M under the 35ºC sun... :baby: Living, burning and learning.

I woke up this morning to find it rather chilly outside. -18°C, to be exact. My dad, who lives in a place that gets even colder in the mornings, told me they had measured -27°C outside at breakfast. Now, I'm not what they'd call frosty, but even I'd admit that's a bit on the cold side.

Oh, I find rather puzzling how you guys like living in a place where you can actually die if you don't have attires that make you resemble a war tank. Although that the sun here also fries you if you don't have some protection. :cry:

When it's cold outside, you can always put on another layer of clothes. But in summer in a place like Brazil, you can only take so much off.

It's a properly white Christmas here ... cold and frosty, with the snow covering everything. :)

Give it a few years... then we'll need to go straight to the pole for snowy winters.

We should take some pictures of the weather to post here instead of just talking about it ...
