Be safe there Jomar, thankful your power is back.
Hope Agate has power too.

We are still chilly here for FL but tomorrow should warm a bit and now they are forecasting some thunderstorms ahead of above average winter 80s here for New Year. How is that for a weather rollercoaster! Coldest consecutive days I have experienced in my many years here!

But oh my how I feel for the areas still dealing with what this winter storm has brought.
Hope NT members there are safe
Thinking of you too Lara and others dealing with Southern Hemi extremes as well

Chemar, what is a "falling iguanas" alert? Do they freeze and fall off their perches?

Yes, they do. The cold leaves them unable to grip. or even move.
Most recover once the weather warms. They can injure themselves, and people, in their falls...and because so many, in some areas, quite hazardous I am told.

Good to see you posted Agate and Jomar and Chemar.

Oh the poor little Iguanas.

I had to look up about the Iguanas after you posted the other day. I looked up some Florida news sites and it showed them falling and trying to turn over.

Your area would be full of tropical type flora too I suppose and that wouldn't deal well with such intense weather especially after all the flooding not long ago.

Heatwave passed in my area. They don't last so long. I'd rather be overheated for a week than deal with what you're all dealing with actually. Everything fine here although I feel it brewing and there's a monsoon trough looming up further north. I started stocking up on water yesterday. Get it delivered. If the pump goes out I have no water and I don't drink the ground water. Can't wait to move and have my own home again. If a cyclone heads my way, and it just may, I'm out of here somewhere, somehow. Not sure how really. As you know there's not much notice.

Photos I've seen in the news are horrific really. Some out of Buffalo. Just shocking

Hope everyone else is OK and doing the best they can. I'm not sure where a few regular posters here actually live. Hope they're safe.

Wet season has arrived.

640mm in 6 days. Just over 25 inches.
Some areas nearby have had over 1000mm (39inches) in 6 days.
