Icicle weather!

By johnboy - 12 June 2009 33

Yesterday morning shocked everyone I think by getting down to -6 degrees.

As I can’t recall the last time I saw icicles I thought it worthy of taking a picture.

Today the Bureau forecasts a whole 12 degrees.

But with the 10.24am update registering a mere 1 degree I’m having my doubts about getting there.

So much for that warm dry winter we were afeared of.

What’s Your opinion?

Snow, damnit, snow!
That way, at least the bitter cold will be worth it.

Nice shot jb.

There was a good 5mm of ice covering my bird bath yesterday which was still there at lunchtime!

Same here. Every morning I measure the thickness of the ice to determine whether I should cycle into work. Solid ice = no-bloody-way.

I get excited about it – can’t wait until it snows in the day. My QLD relatives think its crazy living here and then complain about having to wear a jumper when its 20 degrees in their house??

My motorcycle has now hibernated for the winter.

It’ll sleep now until the first warm days of spring 😉

Ground Effect. Works well in -5 degrees. I didn’t need a thermal or anything underneath.

It’s currently 1.6 toasty degrees out here at Jerra…

There is still ice on my front step now.

They over heat the buses here anyway – everyone is dressed in 6 layers for standing around at the busstop for 10 minutes, then you have to get onto the bus that is heated up like your loungeroom.

Hats off to you Danman. I couldn’t find my little silk balaclava that fits nicely under my helmet, so I took the motorbike today. I confess there may have been a part of me that didn’t want to look that hard.

I rode 16km in minus 5 – it was fun – as long as you have the right gear…

Its easier to stay warm than it is to stay cold in Summer.

My bottle of water didnt appreciate it though – ice on the inside by mitchell.

good old climate change and global warming. so much for the warm winter, as jb said.

Must be fun for bus users in Belconnen, sitting in the cold to catch a bus & then some of the heaters in the newer buses fail & it is colder in the bus then outside.

I’m with Thumper. I love it. If I could move to Tasmania at this point, I would.

Thumper 11:00 am 12 Jun 09

I love it.

Bring on the minus 5s. The mornings are simply beautiful.

I got up at 4am yesterday morning to go to work.

…Yeah winter is a bullshit.
