Halny (pl. hala - mountain meadow) it is a wind which generally blowing only in Poland, it's very strong and also causes headache, depression or even increases number of suicides.
The stronges "halny" blew in May of 1968 - more than 300km/h

Heh, Beth, you know the phrase: "When hell freezes over."? It has a new dimension in Ecuador: "When it rains in hell." Sorry, those temps you have are even higher than the record ones here...

You want a giggle, Ante? It's cold here today, only 10 C. The rain just keeps 'a comin'. I'm not sure what is more unsettling, though - the fact that it's raining, or the fact that what I'm listening to right now are the sounds of internal fluid movement in the volcano.

It's about 25 km away. However, Ambato is situated such that if Tungurahua goes active again, we get a neat light and sound show, light ash rains, and not much else. I'm more concerned for my friends in the town of Baños, which is right on the North Flank and has a history of being partially obliterated by lahars (pyroclastic mudslides).

It was cloudy last night, which is unfortunate or I'd have pictures of lava fountains to share with you. I'm tenacious, though - it will be clear one of these nights. The bramido (rumbling) was loud enough to rattle my windows last night.

Oh, Elizabeth, it is only know that I fully appreciate the color of your language. And how rich it is. Really, a delight, I can't find proper words to describe the feeling I have while reading your posts. Reminds me of British English.

Still, I wouldn't wanna be able to feel the magma below the soil I'm standing on.
Cheers and may it warm up for you tomorrow.

I'm afraid that nobody. They know how to take care of themselves, at least those that are not dormant. |There's an easy trick that will last more than a month if you know what to do. Will post pics of this techniques later. It's just a matter of phantasy.

Jack, it's Canadian English, influenced by the fact that both of my schoolteacher grandmothers were Scottish, and that I have a taste for classical literature and putting on accents.

The volcano has, thankfully, stopped rumbling (at least last night) and it's cleared off, so hi-ho-slivers away to 38 C today!

Please do communicate these interesting techniques when you have the time. It would certainly be an added value!

You will be surprised how primitive this "technique" is. But it works. Better than people, who would forget to water the plants.

Thanks Elisabeth ,but i do'nt worry about the palms snow can protect from the cold...It seemed you used a google translation so the right one is:je souhaite que vos palmiers survivent ( i think that we all have the same difficulties for translating)
Ante ,rain is announced for tomorrow and the warming for all parts of France is announced for the end of the week





the vulture are flying above the house searching for a hypothetical food





An the donkey in th snow was given some hay

Some bad weather you've been having. We have the same temperatures at the moment, but there's certain lack of snow in my region.
Lucky me. It's cool and I went outside in just a T-shirt. It started being chilly only after being 45 minutes among my Ensenia foetida. Literally.

Beware, when the snow melts down and the water is absorbed by the soil and frosts come again, palms might come through a shock and that could be the last hit for them.

What were the min. temps at your place in last... say 2 months? How did Jubaeas take it? I guess no protection was used on those high specimens, right?
