Depends on the winter. This winter has been great so far. Today is 11c. It normally stays above freezing in the daytime and it is sunny and bright. Today I took off my cardigan while out for a walk. January is usually a bit dreary with more clouds. Some years it drops below zero F at night and stays below freezing during the day. Then the river nearly freezes over. But still less than 100 years ago the river froze solid in the winter and they drove heavy machinery on it. In the summer it nearly always gets up to 40c. And some summers even more. But it's not humid. Also it cools off at night. It's not unusual to have a 40 degree difference between an early summer day high and a nighttime low. So 100 in the day and then 60 in the early morning.

Ha! My brother is afraid to come to the u.s. in the summer.

We rarely see Brit tourists here. The Germans and French seem hardier although its cold as the devil in their countries too

Lucky!

I wish I lived within that distance of where a slam was played. Heck even I'd be happy for a 250 ATP event to come to Manchester

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Morning

Have to leave soon for another dim sum brunch with relatives on a Saturday. The noise will drive me crazy.

star, I took some pics finally. Not really good quality as I don't have a tripod and not a good photographer. I let the camera did all the work.

There are lots in southern california too.

Maybe they just don't like the rugged backwoods areas.

There aren't many or really any Indian tourists here.

Recently, we have had one family of Indians settle in town. I know this because one of the sons was recognized in the newspaper as an outstanding student in his graduating class, and I see his sister working in a local restaurant. I think the family are immigrants because the daughter speaks with an Indian accent.

And at first, I thought you were asking about the Navajos who live here.

New Jersey is one of the most ethnically and religiously diverse states in the country. As of 2011, 56.4% of New Jersey's population younger than age 1 were minorities.[44] It has the second largest Jewish population by percentage (after New York);[45] the second largest Muslim population by percentage (after Michigan); the largest population of Peruvian Americans in the United States; the largest population of Cubans outside of Florida; the third highest Asian population by percentage; and the third highest Italian population by percentage according to the 2000 Census. African Americans, Hispanics and Latinos, and Arabs are also high in number. It has the third highest Indian population of any state by absolute numbers.[46][47][48][49] It has the third largest Korean population, fourth largest Filipino population, and fourth largest Chinese population, per the 2010 U.S. Census. The five largest ethnic groups are: Italian (17.9%), Irish (15.9%), African (13.6%), German (12.6%), Polish (6.9%).
All in our tiny little state

What does this diversity lead to?

Delicious food

I know! This is why I don't understand opponents of immigration. It's good food!

I remember when after the Vietnam war, Vietnamese began to flood into the Houston area. People worried, but then -- it was just good food!
