Seems global warmings down in the southern hemisphere hope it warms up for you soon xx
You will laugh. If we get more than an inch of snow our roads get closed kids get sent home etc
Though we rarely get snow. Would be nice to get some this winter but not to your extreme

People from all over the world are on this forum. That is neat. I am learning my geography. My family came to America from Wales. We may be related.

Hi, southern England (Cambridge) has had a reasonable winter although I am desperate for the Spring.
On a clear night after supper we set up the telescope on the lawn and observe space. Saw Jupiter and it's 4 moons a while back....get the patio heater on and wrap up and just enjoy.
Has really helped me gain some sort of perspective after a very prolonged low....reached crisis point on Sunday and was almost admitted in.
So yeah...looking forward to recovering an equilibrium again and am ready to receive spring.
P.S - Saw two orbiting satellites on the dog walk this eve. 👌👌🐶🐶

I miss being outside in the stars and seeing the moon. Not sure why I lost the spunk to go out at night. We have the brightest moon out here in the country. I do watch the sunrise every day because I have a Rooster that gets up at 4:30am and for some reason I have to get up before him. And I have insomnia. My neighbors have roosters too and I get up before their first crow. strange huh.

Sounds lovely....I have a thing about 3am....eachtime I wake it always seems to be same time.
We are astronomy and physicist nerds so observing the bigger picture is always something that fetches me comfort.
Buddhism is my other love and anchor in times of darkness.

The last few years there has been very little Winter weather here in Florida, USA. Never had to bundle up in my Winter clothes. I'm in south Florida. They say the whole state will be under water in a generation.
