Default Weather crises!

Guys i was just wondering what type of weather you experiencing around the States and UK. This is our summer and temps in my area of SA should be around 35 C to 40 C (about 95 F to 105 F) yet we cold as sin every second day and even having snow in areas a short distance away. This throws me out completely as this time of year I pack away heating lamps etc and worry about cooling not heating.
Are you experiencing similar unusual weather? Our snakes must be just as confused.

I live in the Rocky Mountains. It's been an unusually cooler than normal and wet weather. Generally we have several days of 100 degrees or highre but this year we had but 2 days like this. It can be in the 90's for the most part during the summer. Winters are rather dry. This would be my 2nd winter with a different snake so I'm not sure how to respond here. Since I keep Storm inside the house this is not much of an issue. Since the house is relatively the same temp regarldess of season.

Pretty normal here in northern California. It's been in the 50s and 60s recently during the day, which is typical for November around here. Just got back from southern California yesterday and they had perfect 75 degree weather, I'm jealous!

Here in Buffalo, NY area its been unseasonably warm this past week, about 50-60 degrees. Usually we have snow by now. We keep the house at 65 degrees year around, so Lucy has to have heat lamps on at all times.

We just tend to get 'weather' , we don't know who's weather we are getting because it changes so frequently we have no idea what to expect. This time last year we were in he coldest November in 25 years and this year it's been really mild. It makes no sense.

The only way to forecast the weather here and be accurate is to look out the window...and 1/2 the time your still wrong....lol

Hey Denny!

How'd the snakes handle the earthquake earlier this year? Just kinda curious how these friends of ours behave if you noticed anything?
