Winter gloom
Only a few more days until the winter solstice and then the days will start lengthening again. Not that it will make much difference for a while. It really couldn't be gloomier here if it tried. Constant cloud cover and incessant rain. The only consolation is that we must be saving on heating bills, due to it being the warmest winter on record.

Current Mood: gloomy gloomy

And, here, it's cold for us. It's been down in the 30's at night, which is quite cold for southern California.

I hear that El Nino is causing some changes in weather across the U.S. this year. I wonder if it affects the weather patterns in other countries, too.

El Nino generally brings drier weather to Australia, although what happens in the Indian Ocean also has a big impact on our climate.

I think we're blaming El Nino for our unseasonally warm December. Apparently in some places in the UK the daffodils are already blooming!

We've had bushfires, flash fooding, and even a tornado over here. It's looking like it's going to be a hot, dry summer for us.

The weather is certainly more exciting than it used to be.
