or in other words f**k me, it's COLD!

What is the point of freezing cold weather if it doesn't snow (tomorrow? Word to the wise, don't put ordinary table salt onto an icy path, because that would be just plain STOOPID! and f**k up the ground ('borrow' grit from a council grit bins instead)

I've never had that problem, I just fire the salt right onto the ground. I judge people if they use table salt at the actual table anyway. It's only good for snow and ice.

It's gone REALLY cold here; we're supposed to get snow today or tomorrow but the sky is looking pretty clear at the minute (unfortunately). I've been dying to get my wellies out since October and we've only had one day of snow here.

No snow yet either, we really need rain here tho, think we're officially still in a drought here in the East, it never rains here, well compared to Manchester!!!

Deborah - we've had nothing but rain in Sydney for days. The forcast is rain through February. Poor show for summer. We drove to Canberra yesterday for my niece's uni orientation at ANU - it rained all the way there and back.
Floods in Moree. There was a news story this morning about a family that had to rescued from their farm shed which was on higher ground. The snakes decided to take shelter there as well from the flood waters.

Try to keep warm everyone. I'll try to keep dry!!

Margi my friend arrived in Sydney in November, expecting an amazing summer and has done nothing but complain about how your summer's been since he got there.

I wish I could be sympathetic towards him but I haven't had a sober conversation with him in months (I'm jealous).
