These days here it's been drizzling,and the fields are so wet and muddy that I cannot do preparing in time for my orange trees’ fertilizing! It seems that lots of places around the world are suffering from extreme cold.What are you encountering at the moment?

Its just sunny and rainy days here. No winter, no autumn. I'd say sunny but cooling days here would be Spring for me :p it's currently raining abit here, but it seems like it would stop raining in a while though. Frankly speaking, I'm lucky as Im not encountering any extreme weathers,; extreme heat or cold. Here, the weather is just fine, not so hot , not so cold .id say, I'm lucky haha! Well, you seem to like gardening no? A question here though, it's it hard to do fertilising when the fields are wet and muddy? I thought, wet and muddy places are conductive environment for plants to live, as the soil are loosen up. Am I wrong? :D

These two days it rained,but it's not continous,so it's very good for orange grove because the soil is wet enough and not muddy.Now it's not cold but it's a little hot if it's sunny like that several days ago.This rain is very good for the orange trees to grow.Yes,it was hard to work in the grove because it's too cold and too wet then but not now.Have a nice day!

My city is thawing out... it's mostly green here. Might be expected though cause we're not that far north (Toronto). This is a pretty warm winter, I remember a few years ago it was way whiter around here. Especially during January and February the ground is covered in snow or ice. We actually had rain in December. Is it global warming?

I believe that climate is crazy all over the world, we are no suffering of extreme cold, I live in the tropics, but it is colder than it is supposed to be, and even it rains, ocasionally, from time to time at night. We, are in the dry season, showers in the end of january beginning of february were unthinkable few years ago. I am sure that we are paying for all the wrong things we have done to the planet all this years, it is time to rethink our attitudes and take care more gently of our common home.

Well,was that so?Did you feel cold than the usual then?Yes,nowadays we can see more and more natural disasters that didn't happen in the past! For example,why did the horrible tornados happen in Europe this year,which often happen in the north America?I think that's all because of the continuous developing of us human beings!

Every day, more and more things happens in the world, huricanes, for instance, are far more strong and destructive than any time before, and I think that it all is due to human interference in the natural environment.

I agree,nothing else is to blame for that.But what human beings have done will not do good to themselves if nothing can be done to relieve the harm to the earth.

The last several days were nice and sunny. It was perfect because we didn't need the heat nor the air conditioner. Then yesterday it got cloudy and it rained. And we needed the rain. But today it's overcast, and although we got no rain today, it's windy which makes it really chilly outside.

Hehe,I can enjoy the perfect weather like yours only these two days because it rained heavily the past two days,luckily it's not continuous,or there will be a flood for us.That rain is good for my orange trees because it's more than 20 days since it didn't rain before this time. But once it's sunny now,it's a little hot because summer is coming.Have a nice day!

Here in Guangxi province of China,I can have 4 seasons.But when it's summer,it's always so hot,and once winter arrives,it's so cold sometimes though it seldom snows in my area.I hate both extreme hot and cold.It must be very hot there in your country now.But have a nice day!

Dear friend, here in Italy where I live, the weather is not good. Is it even snowed in Rome (the capital) which has not happened since 1985. Even in my town, the temperature is 2 degrees below zero. Not being at all well outside, we hope that this grip of frost passes quickly.

The weather here is almost like Fall. We haven't had much snow and that is very weird. Right now 1:17 EST it is 46 degrees going on 50. One good thing about it is that I can keep my heat bill down.

Our weather is a bit cool, but not as cool as it usually is this time of year. Until this week we had not had any moisture, and that was a concern for me. I hope we get the appropriate cool weather now, and not after the trees have leafed out or bloomed. I have some fruit trees.

Here cold has gone away,and it's cool these two or three days because it rained heavily last night,and the rain stopped this morning.It's not a continuous heavy rain so I don't have to worry about a flood.I'm so happy the grove is wet enough for my oranges to grow.Have a nice day!

We had a wet January, and February so far has just been damp. After last summer's drought, I still thank God for every drop. If the rains continue, we just might be able to grow some spring vegetables. As to extreme temperatures, we had an early freeze in the fall, but after that, the weather here in south central Texas has been mild.

Hehe,it is so hard to have a perfect weather.I hope you can do what you love to do this summer. These two days there were moderate rains every now and then,and I have finished all the work in my orange field,so I have some time to give comments to my friends' responses,which have been postponed so long!

Yes, we're having good weather - if you consider temperatures in the 90s with high humidity good weather. We did get some welcome rain last week and a short shower today. Every drop of moisture is welcome in drought stricken Texas.

The weather here in southern Georgia (USA) has been really nice for the last few days. The temperatures have been in the 60’s and 70’s (Fahrenheit) for the last week or so. We have some colder weather coming up over the weekend, however, with temperatures expected to drop below freezing at night, and expected to be in the low 50’s (Fahrenheit) during the day. The real problem we are having with our weather is the fact that we are in the middle of a pretty bad drought. A lot of the creeks and ponds here have gone dry, and the rivers are really low in most places as well. A lot of farmers had to quit irrigating their crops last Spring and Summer due to lack of water in the ponds they were using to supply their irrigation systems. Needless to say, people are getting worried about what is going to happen with farming in the coming season as well. I am not a farmer, but I do like to hunt and fish, and with the drought conditions we are in, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find places to fish. I am also worried that other wildlife, especially the big game animals, are going to start having more and more difficulty finding water to drink. I guess all we can do is to pray for rain and leave it in God’s hands to provide…

Well,we always miss the mild weather,that's normal. Yes,in a big country like the US or China,there are always some areas that undergo droughts every year,and it's the farmers who suffered badly.Of course the people who love fishing have to put aside their nice fishing tools! But how about now?Do you have to worry about drought or flood?Have fun!

The weather conditions in our country is almost perfect at this time of the year. It is not yet that hot since summer will officially start next month. The wind is still quite chilly especially late at night until dawn. There isn't any need yet for electric fans and air conditioners. Being a tropical country has this advantages since we do not suffer from extreme cold; however, during summer the weather can be quite uncomfortable with the heat and humidity. It is however ideal for the beach outings which is considered as the best season of the year. That is the reason why it is more fun in the Philippines.

So it must be extremely hot in your country now since I started the discussion some months ago.The past days it rained heavily here in my area,it's a little cold.But if it's sunny,it'll be hot,too because summer is coming.

Summer is about to end and it would soon be the rainy season. It has started to rain in the late afternoon with the thunderstorms. The heat has eased a bit and it is no longer as uncomfortable like in the past months.

In our place, the opposite of what you are experiencing. I need to water my plants every morning and afternoon for the heat of the sun dries up everything the whole day. It's kinda hot that I need to take shower three times a day to refresh my body from extreme sweating.
