Meanwhile, the Alpes-Maritimes micro-climate continues mild and sunny, while the rest of Europe is alternately flooded or frozen. I should bloody hope so too - I pay enough tax, the least they can do is keep the weather nice.

Damn here in AK only a bit of snow in the mountains, but we have had heavy downpour for a few weeks. Flooding heavily in some areas of the state, what is years past would have been snow fall, is only rain so far.

Quoting JGPH1A (Reply 1): I should bloody hope so too - I pay enough tax, the least they can do is keep the weather nice.
It's like the line from "Mostly Harmless" by Douglas Adams:
"In the winter, the temperature falls well below the legal minimum; at least, it would if anyone had the common sense to set a legal minimum."
Quoting AirTranTUS (Reply 5): It would be fun to watch people try to drive in it. They can barely drive in light rain.
It's fun right up until you have to go somewhere yourself. Then, suddenly, you're on the road with a bunch of clueless idiots. I've done enough driving in Los Angeles to actually appreciate Masshole drivers. Aggressive? Yes. Utterly stupid and oblivious? No.
"Two and a Half Men" was filmed in front of a live ostrich.
Was raised with metric and right dates, came to live in the US and was completely ruined! Has taken me years to work with the two systems. The attempt was made decades ago to change the US to metric. You can still see some of the remains of the attempts. But so far, no go.

Can't say I feel your pain Falcon, we're having an unusually long Indian Summer here, days in the high 60s, crystal clear, really incredible. Normally we're dealing with at least 50% rain by mid-October.

As detailed in the [url=http://www.airliners.net/discussions/non_aviation/read.main/1399456/]other thread[url], it snowed briefly here around 1PM this afternoon and again (longer) just about an hour ago. We've had snow around the end of October before, but I can't remember a time when we got some not even halfway through the month.
Aviation is proof that given, the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.
