    Weather.

    I don't know what the weather is like with you guys but here in the UK it is just rain, rain and more rain at the moment. Lots of flooding everywhere and more rain and very strong winds to come overnight and through tomorrow.I am dreading seeing the flooding tomorrow.

    Cold, dry, sunny here in central Virginia for many days. I hope things your way will be less drastic than anticipated.

    We've had gorgeous weather for the last 2 weeks or so in central New York State. Very cold nights (18-20) but days reaching into the 50's and 60's, bright blue sky and no wind. Beautiful days to be out walking, putting up outside Christmas decorations. BIG change today. Just above freezing and snow squawls coming sideways. What a difference a day makes. May you not sustain any water damage Ashlett.

    The weather does seem to be getting more strange as the years go by. Here, Upstate NY, is sunny, snow showers, wind and colder than the past week. We have had those crazy hurricanes though. Certainly NYC never expected to see the flooding Hurricane Sandy brought. I was lucky that time, but we had to rescure my 87 year old in-laws from an 8th floor apartment - no electric, no elevator~! I sure hope that you don't see any flooding like that. Water can destroy so much. Mother nature must be a bit angry with us

    I will take rain, however I think the snow would benfit us more here in TX. At least it would melt into the ground instead of running off in these big cracks we have. I some that are 3" wide. Inside my fence is like an island surrounded by open ground. Soooo dry.

    So sorry for your bad weather.
    In KY, we a very sunny and warm Thursday. Friday was a lot cooler but still sunny. Today was the same. Monday and Tuesday we have a possibility of snow.
    That's our KY weather; never know what to expect.
    Cheer up; it always stops raining at some point. I hope you don't get flooded.

    According to the thermometer on my patio its 70 degrees outside today. Supposed to get a bit breezy and down the the mid 60s next week, but probably back to 70 again for the 1st of December. The weather here is one of the things I love about Las Vegas!

    82 degrees here in Phoenix, AZ. Beautiful blue skies and not a cloud in sight. Got together today with friends to do a little sewing, and we had lunch on the patio by the pool. This is about 10 degrees warmer than normal for this time of year.

    I saw disturbing photos on AOL News this morning of the flooding in your part of the world. So, so sad. Especially at this time of the year. My heart is heavy for you all.

    Cool and windy here yesterday. A bit warner here today. Tomorrow is to get cooler and possible large snowflakes. This is just the way it goes around here.

    I hope the rain stops soon. Stay safe.

    I hope the weather changes to bright and sunny for you tomorrow! It's pretty chilly her tonight, about 34 degrees which is very cold to me. I thank the Lord for all my blessings. As a song goes, "I'm drinking from the saucer because my cup has overflowed". Keep praying and trusting the Lord... I'm praying for all in the UK...

    Well, we are better off than a lot as our home is dry, although our garden is under water and I have had to move my hens.

    We had our first hard freeze Saturday night--down to 19. Sunny but cool now. I pray you won't lose anything to the floods. I feel so sorry for the people in the North east who have lost so much.

    Hope it won't be as bad as you fear. We are having fall weather in Northern California with the trees in my yard bright yellows and gold but expecting rain tomorrow. We need rain so it will be welcome. Best of luck to you.

    Here in Australia we are heading into Summer. In Brisbane the prediction for this week is up in the 30's celsius. That's heading towards 100%F. Thank goodness for air conditioning. We had a couple of storm cells last week and some places sustained damage from huge hail stone and wind tearing up trees. We are lucky where we live that the storms seem to go around us. We are all hoping there won't be any flooding this summer. Lucky for us we are on a hill so don't have to worry but a lot of others aren't so fortunate.
