    It's very windy here too, but worse further north. The wind is a westerly, so it's not too cold.

    @April, I saw the horrible situation in your country on the telly. It is better not to have a walk ther in that time, a huge wave could swallove you off.

    Last night was better as the forecast announcest. It was mild. I was quite early up this morning went to a special service at church called `Rorate`and afterwards some nice women prepared a nice breakfast for all of us. We had a nice chat there and went home.

    Today is going to come `der Nikolaus`. I bought some kinds of nuts, mandarines and some chocolate Nikoläuse, that mustn`t miss.

    Today `der Nikolaus` is going to come. I bought some mixed nuts, mandarines and some chocolate Nikoläuse.

    My tablet said it was 30 degrees but then it said 'feels like' 41C. No wonder I felt a tad warm.

    It's lovely and sunny, but a bit humid. The water for the shower is hot, but I think it's only the sun and not solar heating as such. And this is winter weather?

    It's pretty non-descript here. Grey, cold, not at all inspiring. Just the sort of day to get on with some paperwork.

    In The Netherlands and Belgium we call today's windstorm the "St Nicolas storm", because today St Nicolas came in town.
    It was very cold and windy and we still worry about the water level in Antwerp tonight.

    @April - maybe St Nicolas had been eating beans.

    Well yesterday, completely oblivious to the world outside, I set off for a walk with Laika and ended up walking through a hurricane. Luckily it had lost most of its strength by the time it hit here, but it was - um - interesting.

    Yesterday the UK suffered the worst storm surge in 60 year. The defenses held in most places, but 15,000 people were advised to leave their homes. (Unfortunately there's more to come.)
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 25,673 mod
    Lots of beans much have been eaten over Britain @Lynne, if those storms that I hear have been beating the shores are anything to go by. They say it's forecast to be the worst winter in 30 years.

    Why is it that I seem to be in the hottest place in India? It's 32C and even Mumbai isn't roasting quite as much as we are down here.

    We can't complain about the weather here.
    It was sunny, no rain, no wind and about 9°C which is quite mild for the month December.

    No complaints here either. It's a bit milder, and although it's overcast, it's not raining, so it's all good. :)

    By "Finally", do you mean this is a relief Aladdin?

    Here we have sunny days and it should remain so. The mountains and hills were fully covered in snow but the sun is melting it off and brown islands are to be seen.

    @Lynne What I mean is I love winter :D and I like this weather :ar!
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,169 mod
    @Aladdin - finally is usually used to highlight something when there has been difficulty or delay.

    For example, in the UK people would be more likely to say:-

    Finally, it's stopped raining!

    Which is the same as:-

    At last, it's stopped raining!

    :)

    Here, I'm waiting to be able to say:-

    Finally, the sun has come out!

    And here, I'm waiting to be able to say:

    Well done! Are you going to push the boat out?
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 ✭✭✭✭✭
    What did you mean @mheredge?

    I don't fish much, so I will leave the boat where it is. :P

    Snow in the Mediterranean until Israel?
    And we have such a beautiful weather here, in north!
    I wonder what kind of weather lies ahead of us, cause the winter is still long.

    Snow in the Mediterranean all the way to Israel? And yet we have such beautiful weather here, in the north!

    I wonder what kind of weather lies ahead of us, because winter will be with us for a while yet.

    I saw pictures of snow on the roof of a mosque in Esfahan in Iran and I believe Jerusalem had 50cm of snow.
