    thanks Diane, and now here's the Weather report... Ollie?

    MILD!

    toasty warm here in Manchester, UK. unseasonally mild for October. People out walking in t-shirts at midday in the city centre. Bit cold in the morning but the past few days has been cloudless and mild temps. Can rain a lot though. Usually at night.

    I have no doubt that I'll have to put on the tungsten spike Schwalbe tyres in January again. Rolling down the road they sounds like Rice Krispies. :)

    Luckily last year and current one instead of a ****ing cold bus doing the first travel of the day. I have a hotty car =).

    86F today here in Indiana. Usually its fairlly chilly this time of year, leaves are starting to change but nothing abnormal other than our lack of rain lately, ground is bone dry 3 feet deep and turns to powder when you dig it up

    Not me, i have to work outside regardless of how bad it gets. Boss is weird like that.

    In response to the topic title:
    No.

    Everyone raves about how cold it is this time each year, as if it was much different the year before. And sure, it's cold, but statistics will tell you that it won't even be close to the coldest winter in "ages" ;).

    I'm hoping for a rainy wet winter here in mid-west Arkansas, our pond is down 4 feet already :(

    The most it normally drops is a foot or so. I think we're 5-6 inches below normal rainfall for the last 2-3 months and about 10-12F above avg.

    I dunno about media conspiracies or ice ages, but it's cold as sh*t here already, my HW turned at least 7C colder overnight (a bit of nerdy way to measure temperature, right?). Never happened before so early in October.

    For the record, for us to enter a new ice age that would mean that the previous one had ended. Which hasn't. Another glacial period on the other hand, that could spring back. It's happened multiple times during this ice age with the last glacial period ending about 20,000 years ago.

    As for a cold winter? In a way I'd like that. I remember one winter we had here that resulted in a good 3 feet of snow which was unheard of for this area. Unfortunately it came with several ice storms which are not fun as they cause power to go out from lines falling either from the weight of the ice or things falling on the lines due to ice buildup, like tree limbs. I finally got my ushanka and good gloves this winter though so I'm ready for it regardless. All I know is that right now I'm a bit tired of summer at this point. Today was warm for this time of year and it certainly didn't fit with the autumn foliage.

    We haven't got out first freeze yet, its usually highs in the 30's this time last year, it was 80 something over the weekend. The electric bill goes down and the gas bill goes up, endless vicious circle.:thumbdown
