Being a southern Cali girl where cold is about 60 and hot isn't much more than 90, lol, even northern California's temps push me...summer high is often over 100 and average cold is around 40 with the occasional night down in the low 30's but we had mid 20's a few nights ago!!

Thats a fairly narrow band :),its odd how Europe uses `C the US is still `F and we use both :)..`F for high temps:ooo its nearly 100,and `C for low temps:ooo its nearly 0 :)..

The mid 20s must have been a shock!!..we have 48`F today,and its supposed to be the bloody Winter!!!!

The ocean really makes the temperatures more consistent - I lived less then 10 miles away - which is why there wasn't too much range...now we're inland by a couple hundred miles along with being about 400 miles further north - so we get four seasons now - but I am getting more comfortable with it being wider :laughing:

Having proper clothes helps too!! I'm perfectly happy with 48F :D

The North Sea is falling down on the job then,it bloody freezing near there this time of year LOL.

The trouble is,Nature is all in a muddle cos of the temps,we need it to be cold to reset the body-clocks..
