Now in the last month of Autumn, we are seeing hints of winter, with increasingly damp mornings (mists and heavy dew), and cooler temperatures. There are still sunny days, and we even had temperatures of 19 and 20 this week!  It's hard to know what to wear, even what layers to have. 

There, shining in the sunrise, larger than they had seen him before, shaking his mane (for it had apparently grown again) stood Aslan himself.

We've had rain, we've had storms (yay!), including some storms that were a little TOO exciting, but the storms have now moved east and next up is a pretty significant heat wave. Today is just gorgeous at 70F. Tomorrow is supposed to be 80F. And Sunday is supposed to be 90F. Hypnotized  

I used to be able to handle the heat quite well, but the older I get the more light-headed I get when it gets hot, so this'll be a shock to the system for sure!

Ditto to all that, fantasia! We've had our two days of spring and now we're dashing straight into summer. Temperatures will be pushing 90F/32C by midweek, with high humidity to match.

Alas, the mosquitoes can't be far behind.

But all night, Aslan and the Moon gazed upon each other with joyful and unblinking eyes.

About what we are getting not so far away. Queensland is promised another deluge or "rain bomb". Hopefully it won't come down this way until next week, or, better still, will go somewhere else. In the Coral Sea would be nice I think poor Lismore can do with a break, from the rainy weather, that is. We did have some sunny days but squelchy & soggy is the name of the game. The storms wrecked our air conditioning & it isn't fixed yet, so we huddle in the kitchen around an old heater. I'm already layering clothing to suit.

Speaking of rain, the past few days have had a lot of weather excitement in these parts:

The Twin Cities set a daily rainfall record May 11 (1.94 inches/50mm), resulting in local flooding; a record high temp of 92F (33C) on May 12 (our power was out all day so the house got a bit warm); tornadoes and high winds that damaged or destroyed houses, farm buildings and equipment in rural areas; baseball-sized hail, and a massive haboob over Sioux Falls and southern Minnesota (a haboob is a huge dust storm more common in the desert southwest of the US or other desert areas).

We were without power for about 24 hours and some trees were down in the neighborhood, but we didn't sustain damage. We had some great views of a shelf cloud approaching from the west right before the strong winds hit.

But all night, Aslan and the Moon gazed upon each other with joyful and unblinking eyes.

A third rainy day, this one gently solid. Good for my dry garden, although my lawns won't get mowed until spring now, unless I have a visit from a grazing animal or someone with a petrol mower. Too wet for my plug-in electric one.

Winter has hit, with temperatures of 6 C of a morning. With more rain tomorrow.  It isn't even June yet. Nail biting Eyeroll I hope it is a nice summer in the Northern Hemisphere Sigh

Don't know about anywhere else, but we are having a chilly beginning, with record low temps for the time of year.  I suppose that will modify all too soon.  It's a blustery day today; yesterday, too, occurred our own private Dust Bowl event, with half the countryside blowing away in a dust storm. (Okay, only a quarter, really Confused Tongue ) It was pelting the house in gusts, and I was sure glad that I didn't have to be out in it.  Gritty teeth and eyes are the pits!

Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away ... my days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle

Our weather has tended cool as well, despite that heat I mentioned above. We came close to having frost again this morning, and it's been unseasonably cool and blustery (no complaints from me; the summer heat and mosquitoes will be here soon enough). However, the clouds have kept me from seeing the early-morning planetary sky show.

But all night, Aslan and the Moon gazed upon each other with joyful and unblinking eyes.

Winter is almost here now, marked by how normal it is to have my heating on - most days if I'm home, and all evenings. The sunny side of my house gets low angled sun from about 9 am, creating warm living rooms. The bedrooms, the hallway between them, the bathroom remain cold. The bedrooms each have an electric heater, so I can preheat before I go to bed, or if I'm working at my desk.

The succession of sunny days won't last forever, but they are nice, once the morning chill is over! We haven't yet had a frost, which we usually get by now.

We're coming out of a rainy few days. I think my house ended up with approximately 4.5" of rain in 48 hours. Not to mention the unseasonably cool temperatures, but I'm not complaining about THAT. 

We're going to hit some toasty temps here in a couple days (and probably humid as well after all that rain), and then another round of storms in the forecast middle of next week.

Today was  glorious: high of 74F/23C, no humidity or bugs, clear blue skies and no wind - a "top 10 weather day" as one local station called it. They are few and far between in these parts this time of year. Hot humid air moves in for the weekend, with storms and unsettled weather likely. A fire tonight, before summer arrives, may be in order.

But all night, Aslan and the Moon gazed upon each other with joyful and unblinking eyes.

  Whew Winter has arrived, & how! It is snowing, not only Down South, in the Alps but on the Northern Tablelands as well. It is icily windy, with minimum temperature at 6.00 am of 6 C, which is likely mild compared to Melbourne or Tasmania. It would be nice to have the air-conditioning mended. Beat up Hmmm   74F/23C sounds sublime. Whew

@waggawerewolf27, might be stating the obvious, but I love that you're having the exact opposite experience as people up here! Snow in May/June must be awesome. 

 Today climbed up in the 90's, (Farenheit). Not the first time this year... even a driving rain this evening did little to cool things down. Fireflies have started glowing in our yard again though, so that's good! Dancing

Last day of Autumn, and our weather was having its last hurrah, with a crazy 20 degrees today in our city!.
