That is, temperatures for the start of July hit minus two here on the weekend. But considering we’re a month into winter that isn’t surprising. What is surprising is that it’s taken so long to drop that low and again, that after a day or so there, they went back up. Yes, we’re still getting warmer than usual temperatures, and while April was dryish, (and so was June,) with a fraction under seven inches for May, and – if we do get decent precipitation for July – we should still end up with better winter grass growth than any year before that I can recall. And as someone or another was saying on TV the other night, they consider global warming to be established fact. I always believed it, I just wish it wasn’t currently being proved – although my damaged leg approves the warmer weather, as does Thunder, my Ocicat, who at almost 13 now, feels the winter chill and doesn’t like it
As does your friend in Australia. Here I am freezing my tail off. And my pet bird is not impressed by the cold either.
