      We had sleet yesterday (north of Scotland had 10" of snow), but today is lovely and sunny with blue skies!

      I'm in Manchester, some snow and a very chilly wind. In fact, it's bl**** freezing. Can't believe that this time last week I was in south west Wales, sitting on the beach and enjoying the sun!

      I'm in Adelaide, South Australia and we have had 30 degree + days all week, but I hear that rain is forecasted for the weekend...but no snow here (ever!)

    I'm in the Rhondda.

    I did have a barbeque last Friday, when my younger daughter visited for the weekend!

    Right now: the heating started coming on again yesterday, even though the thermostat is set to a fairly low 16 deg C. It rained yesterday afternoon and judging by the drops on the window panes seems to have been raining earlier today.

    I'm looking forward to a very chilly week by the sea in Tresaith from Friday. However, since the event is a SaysomethinginWelsh.com Welsh bootcamp, I know I will have a great time whatever the weather smile

    It's quite a nice day down here in the London area, with patches of warm sun, although the temperature has dropped.  We did have some heavy rain/hail storms yesterday evening

    I'm in South GA, enjoying my unheated swimming pool and soaking up the sun on my deck!

      Oh shut up!

      I take solace that you have to beat the 'gators out of the pool to use it and will soon retreat to your air conditioned cave, coming out only at night to do battle with the bugs.

        We don't allow no stinkin' Florida Gators in our pool - GA Bulldogs only (along with the occasional Great Dane)!

        When the mercury hits 100 and the humidity is in the 90s, I can cool off in my pool or seek the comfort of my cool (cold, actually) home. As for the bugs, I have barrels of bug spray! lol

        Oh, and I already have a tan! nanny nanny boo boo

    Snow? I haven't seen it in years.  I remember while living in New York seeing snow in April. It didn't melt until sometime in May!

    The pool is looking great and ready for the weekend here in Florida.

    Lets see last week it was in the 90's this week upper 70's and low 80's. We have had the nicest winter anyone can remember and in a way it is sad because everyone is waiting for the weather to take a turn for the worse instead of just getting out there and enjoying it.

    Mine is a day of rain here in the US. I am in tornado alley and have been watching the skyes for the last couple of days. That was a nasty one that hit the Dallas area yesterday.

    In 1963, there was a significant snow in Richmond, Virginia (lat. 37°, 33', 13" N) after Easter, which was late that year.  Seems a bit like a 50-year cycle thing to me.

    So sorry to hear about the snow...we've had an early summer since the end of February.
    I guess its your turn to have a terrible spring.

    It's 63 degrees and raining here in Indiana.  I've seen light snow on the ground on Easter; so it's not that unusual here at this time of year.

    I was especially cheered to hear from those in the warmer climates!
    I went to work and got soaked and chilled; my hands were red raw with the cold.
    I had a lovely chat about the weather with the car park attendants (sitting in their booths, too cold to go out)
    I rang my mum who lives in Brighton 180 miles south and she said it was "quite nice" grr!!
    Just think, if it wasn't for the vageries of the weather I would have missed all these wonderful conversations and just passed the day by!

    It's an ongoing winter and spring drought here. The worst in 50 years!

      We have had rain/snow all day- We need it but Iknow you need it even more- so maybe we ought to stop complaining, but I guess that would not be British!!

    We had snow in the morning here in Birmingham, which turned to sleet later on. I was frozen stiff all day. Where has the spring gone? Please come back ASAP!

    I'm 20 miles south-east of Glasgow in the UK and last week, we had the warmest March day since records began, with the thermometer hitting 75F. That is warmer than I remember experiencing since I moved back to Scotland from London two and a bit years ago, even in July/August, as the past two summers have been entirely non-existent. Monday the snow came and I was back to the Winter wear. Had hail stones earlier today and although the snow has gone, there is a howling easterly wind tonight that doesn't bode well for the weekend...
