Also idk where to post those, but could someone get the pepperoni off of my lawn/titles.
Yeah, April Fool's is over, so I'll remove those. Done! You can always PM one of the mods, or you're able to change your title thread yourself whenever you'd like.

New Zealand has had a fairly eclectic range of weather in the past two weeks thanks to the remnants of two cyclones coming our way, giving us a lovely mix of heat and death-rain. I know it's not a terribly fun topic, but it has me wondering - what's the weather like where you all live at the mo?

The weather's been really nice over the past few days in the UK.

Which is fortunate, given that the cherry blossom is in the full flush of colour. A couple of days of showers would put an end to all that

I just remembered that Cherrim is a pun on cherry blossom...

About four days ago, the temperatures struggled to get to 40F, and yesterday's high was 82F. The standard temperature range for western New York, even during the winter.

YouTube has suddenly decided to zoom itself out - on the default setting, the video appears smaller, and the side-columns are wider. This is completely independent of my browser's zoom. How do I change it back?
EDIT: It's because I had the favourites bar displayed. WHY?

Cherrim is one of those often forgotten favorites of mine. 8D It's just too cute to NOT love.

And I'm in the New York area as well, but my area only reached 75F yesterday. But yeah, at least it's not cold with rain and sleet anymore. :C

Well the heat has now given way to an absolute soaking wet storm, which means I'm trapped inside and can't play Pokemon Go. My life is ruined!

Cherrim is a goodie - nice concept, one of those Pokemon that is undeniably a gimmick but an unrecognised one at that. I have one in Galactic but it is tough to give it much attention

Okay, now it actually did reach 80F here, and I was stuck in the house because we had construction workers working on our driveway and blocking it. That's okay, I didn't want to go out and enjoy the nice weather anyway...

There was meant to be the remnant of another cyclone here today and it completely bypassed my city after we were told for ages to prepare for the worst storm in decades. Really annoying to cancel plans due to weather reports and have it all blow over anyway.

Anyone doing anything special for the Easter break?

Welcome to every "life threatening blizzard" that crosses the western fields of New York. 16 INCHES of snow! -30F wind chills! Mandatory travel ban! Check on your neighbors, make sure they haven't died from carbon monoxide poisoning!

Then the day of the storm comes, we get maybe two inches if that, it's sunny most of the day and temperatures are pushing into 40F.

Oh yeah, THAT nonsense.

The last "big one" in March actually left my neighborhood with less snow after the "bilzzard" than before.

And being I live on a coastal island, I was expecting to get the worst of it.

You've not seen absurdity till you've seen Britain England in the grip of one inch of snow. You have to wonder how this nation managed to map the world's oceans when you look at Londoners paralysed by slush

I always hear about England's legendary reactions to snow. An inch in London shuts the whole country down. Is it true that's when the raving bands of cannibals surface for their yearly feast?

I mean, that blizzard really did leave me with 2 feet of snow and we had to get a truck to plow us out, but... looks like I wasn't lucky! :p I couldn't even look out the windows on our main floor because the snow was completely blocking the view.

Yes and no. The Others usually try to invade from Inverness. You never hear about it because the Scots ignore them and to the average elite Londoner, the north of England means Cambridge. I don't think the Others have made it further than Blackpool for about twenty years now
