I think we're the only group using the forum at the moment. 11 of us are online. It's probably the rush of adrenaline, that feeling of euphoria, that's keeping us awake day and night - even though we've completed the task and need our beauty sleep.
We also want to read the book(s) "wot we wrote! "

Well, I’m sitting in my back garden enjoying the morning sun while leisurely eating a very late breakfast. There are many good things about being Australian, this is one of them,

Wouldn't that be the Horizontally Icy City?

I used Google to check the weather, too! Found out it snows a lot in Chicago, and it’s windy. But I knew that from that Doris Day song. I put some snow in the story — didn’t want to waste the research after staying up half the night! :wink:

Horizontal icicles, eh! I wish I'd known about that when I wrote the chapter. Did you put that in yours?
((You know that in the UK the weather is a very popular topic of conversation. Can talk about it for hours!)) 8)

There was a surprising lack of weather in my chapter (must have been indoors).
We also talk of the weather here in Australia, especially in Melbourne. The joke about Melbourne is that if you don’t like the weather, wait 15 minutes. A little unfair – sometimes it takes a few hours...
Recent example: It was 45°C (approx 113°F) here on Friday (much hotter in other areas – it was a bad day). Just after 3:00pm it dropped to about 27°C (80°F) in about 15 minutes.

I gave up waiting for an answer. I see the bones were there. So they do end sort of the same. :D
Nicely done, Sir! Thank you for a lot of fun, Sir.

Thanks for another year of it, Piggy! And thanks for letting us pick over the project again, too.

I think weather was quite irrelevant in my chapter. So was Chicago, for that matter, and pretty much all of the characters. But what a fun chapter. :)
