Crazy weather for crazy people?.
The Northwest wind on the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand is just that!. I don't know the technical terms, but it's a HOT hard blowing bastard that can drive people nuts thru ionization or something. In Spring, it is doubly a PIA in Christchurch through wind blown pollen causing runny eyes, nose, and sneezing.
I've heard Canada has a similar 'fern' (?) wind effect - through wind blowing over high Alps.

nice and sunny here in California

All the leaves are brown - All the leaves are brown
And the sky is gray - And the sky is gray
I've been for a walk - I've been for a walk
On a winter's day - On a winter's day
I'd be safe and warm - I'd be safe and warm
If I was in L.A. - If I was in L.A.
California dreaming - California dreaming
On such a winter's day


Stopped into a church
I passed along the way
Well, I got down on my knees - Got down on my knees
And I pretend to pray - I pretend to pray
You know the preacher likes the cold - Preacher likes the cold
He knows I'm gonna stay - Knows I'm gonna stay
California dreaming - California dreaming
On such a winter's day

All the leaves are brown - All the leaves are brown
And the sky is gray - And the sky is gray
I've been for a walk - I've been for a walk
On a winter's day - On a winter's day
If I didn't tell her - If I didn't tell her
I could leave today - I could leave today
California dreaming - California dreaming
On such a winter's day - California dreaming
On such a winter's day - California dreaming
On such a winter's day

How's ya memory BNZ? - the wind swung today from stinky hot Nor' westerly around 3pm to bastard Nor' East' and the temperature has accordingly dropped about 10c degrees.
Bitches clits - do you get a discount if you hit their Jackpot?.

Must be global climate change. Everything was stable until Bush stole the election up here. Sorry for the bad weather, my friend. The Democrats will re-stabilize the climate if they are elected.

I'll bet the New Zealand wool will be nice and thick this year, though.

Yeah, we wouldn't want to trust those 10,000 "scientists" world wide. They must have an agenda, the sneaky Bastards.
