    During my too brief tenure at the Twin Cities campus, one of my professors offered his take on winter mornings in Minnesota to our class. It ran thus: one gets up in the morning, goes to their bedroom window, and looks out. The sun is shining brightly and it looks to be a beautiful day. Next, one goes to their closet, and dons every item of clothing they own. Then, and only then, are they MAYBE prepared to go outside.

    Whereas here in Oz lots of places are brown and orange sky on brown and orange land.
    Yay. The world is being colour coded.

    Oh PZ, I am sitting here near Canberra in 40degree C heat, and windy, watching anxiously as the fires build up near the city again. Every hour I hose my chickens to try to keep them alive. That photo looks like heaven to me.

    Oooooh pretty! Glad I’m not out in it! New York City has been getting snow that literally lasts on the ground about an hour…maybe. It barely gets below 40F here. ( flips into geezer mode) When I was a kid it used to go below 0F and stay there for a while and I remember foot high snow that used to last for weeks. Remember that line from Kim Carnes old hit Bette Davis Eyes . “She’s pure as New York snow” . Honestly I don’t miss that dirty grey snow with the frozen garbage but the lack of cold is killing the trees.
