Brrr in summer

It has been unseasonably cool this summer and I don't mind one little bit, hey EC. Sister, Bone Doctor and Jo are holidaying in the north of the state and visited Mount Hotham and it was snowing. This is Sister's car.

R's oldest sister in the north of England sent a photo of the park outside her front door and it isn't really a surprise to see snow there and of course it is winter. So pretty.

Jackie in Toronto posted this amazing photo of a partly frozen Niagara Falls, a place I remember being very warm and humid. 

Tradie Brother is staying tonight as he has jury selection at the County Court tomorrow, so I can only give you a quickie this morning.

  1. You are right. I don't mind the smallest iota of a little bit. We are heading for more usual summer temperatures this weekend and early next week and I am dreading it.
    Love the snow in summer shot - and that snowy path in the north of England. A partially frozen Niagra would be spectacular to see.
    I have never been called for jury duty. Have you?
    Blasted blogger is refusing to allow me to comment again. With luck this time it will relent.

    1. EC, yes I see the heat is coming. No, I have never been called for jury duty. I wouldn't mind. Tradie Brother wasn't selected. I hope you didn't have rewrite the comment.

    1. Marie, I'm sure you will agree with the lack of snow, year after year is nothing to do with climate change.

    We've got more snow than we can handle. It's been really cold and snowy this winter. Bring on spring, I say! Bunyip

    1. How deep Bunyip. Can you open your door to the street?

      Recent snowfall has been ankle deep; not sure how many cm that is! Around town, the snow is already piled up above my head in many places and many areas are not being cleared because there's nowhere to put the snow apparently. Bunyip

      Forgot to answer your second question. We can open the door facing the street but when the weather's really bad, it has to be changed to manual opening because the snow piling up the outside of the door interferes with the automatic operation. Bunyip

    4. That sounds like enough snow at the moment.

    5. All you really need is enough for a few snowmen and a good snowball fight.

      My thoughts exactly River. And the snow doesn't need to be in town, the mountain is fine! Bunyip

  6. I have also been enjoying the cooler days, but that's over now. Today is predicted to be 32C, followed by 33C and 35C, I think. I do remember our Saturday s supposed to be 39C and I will be inside with the cooler on. The snowy photos are very pretty, particularly the one from R's sister. I'd frame that.

    1. River, it really is a lovely photo by R's sister. Pity she cut off the top of the tree, just like I would.

  7. We may get a dusting next weekend, but I won't get excited over the forecast because it was pretty much a big fat "no valley snow". It's been so wet and miserable this winter, but not cold.

    1. Strayer, not being cold is something I suppose. Do you stand at a window and stare out at the falling rain?

  8. Frost here; no snow. But a balmy 6 C this morning.

  10. I bitterly resent cold, ice, snow and hail. We have paid our taxes for years (pre Covid, at least) and deserve a beautiful summer. 24-32c is all I require :)

    1. Hels, well you have had a good bit of living experience in a cold and wet country, back in the days when it used to receive snow.

    1. WWW in three states there will be snow in winter mostly on the mountains. We have a number of ski resorts. I hope the storm wasn't too bad.

  15. So far we just had once a bit snow but it lasted only one day and next day it was gone. But in the Ardennes people went skiing, although the stations were closed.

    1. Gattina, there seems to be much less snow in the world nowadays.

  16. It was shocking thing for me to realize that it snowed in Australia. In not so shocking news, it's snowing here. And will be for most of the week.

    Enjoy your visit with your brother!
