    It is summer here in Australia, and yesterday (Sunday) was a scorcher! It was OK in the morning and around lunchtime, but as the afternoon went on, the temp went up. I don't know what it peaked at (it was apparently 45C, or 113F), but a power outage at about 7pm that lasted over 3 hours may it very uncomfortable as it was still 32C at midnight. For those who don't want to do the math, 32C is equal to 90F, in your language. It may not sound a lot but with no aircon, we got no sleep. Even the dogs struggled!

    Why should I get out of bed at 4am just to watch us lose?

    BREAKING NEWS UPDATE in the DC Area :

    After several un-substantiated reports of extreme weather so severe, that it could have catastrophic consequences, DC area meteorologists have just confirmed that the sky is indeed NOT falling.

    Guessing Fear The Spear is without power, but hope he's okay. Wilmington is taking a beating.

    Yes they are.

    Been lucky here in Chapel Hill. Just the last few hours where we've gotten consistent rain.

    My area started off under a possible evacuation, storm surge warnings, etc.

    The wind never picked up, it hasn't even rained.

    Weather guessers! But we can control climate change!

    Pays to be safe, but there is a huge element of sensationalism among weather channels/reporting to grab share.

    We never got too much. Friday night had the longest periods of semi-heavy rain. We were always on the edge past the heavy rain.

    No. Frankly, I'm worried about him. Wilmington really got hammered. Hope he and his mom and family are okay.

    Hoping everyone made it through the storm with none to minimal damage. Have an aunt & uncle who live in Southport N.C. and they had a little bit of water damage. Her neighborhood pulled together and have helped those in need of repairs.

    Didn't he say he doesn't have a smart phone? That could play a part in his absence. Nevertheless still worrisome.

    Will be nice to finally hear from him.

    Hopefully he's just too busy to check in.
