It was so cold yesterday...

That the peanut butter I got from the cellar was too cold to spread. It tore the bread up.

You wish.

Everyone is paralyzed with (induced?) indecision, but if they did act they would do precisely the wrong thing.

You guys in the northern hemisphere must be having a lousy winter & spring.

It's normal for my car to rise through the top MPG list during our Summer/your Winter, then fall back down the list as your figures come good again.

Baa started Summer at #85 and after just recording my worst tank since November, it's still at #42.

Come on guys, this is getting embarrassing.

Hi
us in the very north hemisphere have to put up with sub zero temps for 4 months +. My day time temp rises to +10c and night lows of of -5c now that we have passed the equinox. In morning need all the gadgets to keep windows and mirrors clear then in afternoon everything is turned off. All the joys of living less then 2000 miles from north pole. 22 hours of daylight in june and 6 hours of poor light in winter. Would i move to a warmer climate NO as i hate humidity and heat makes me very grouchy.
