I just read that in our old suburb, the students in the school system speak 26 different native languages.

Did you lose suitcase on the way up?
I have plenty of warm clothes stashed in the house. I rarely wear them though. My bodies internal thermostat has been whacked, and is getting worse. Shovelling snow for an hour in a T-shirt is normal for me even in 20 degree weather as lonh as there is no wind. The tank top and flip flops picture was however a set up for my friends back in Florida.

Wednesday morning it was 12 degrees and windy. I did wear a denim jacket while loading the car for the trip home. It was COLD that morning. I am now in Orlando, about 250 miles from home. People here are complaining about the cold.....it is 65 degrees.....yeah, its so cold.....right?

It was 39 degrees here today. I was out for a bike ride, and I'm not complaining. It was sunny with a light breeze, so it's all good.

Default Down under its hot today

All that white stuff looks so inviting...

Currently 40C. rising to 44C over the next five days. With hot sticky nights. Bush fires (wild fires) are the biggest fear.

Yesterday it was only about 38C and I took the bike out for a bit of a zoom-zoom. After about 10 minutes really spongy brake levers - the heat softens the rubber of the brake lines, lines balloon under pressure, no brakes, flapping sphincter. Braided lines are very overdue. At the same time tyres get really soft and grip like glue, so there is an upside.

Here we had below zero C degrees. Ice on car windows, ice on top of water in a bucket.
But no snow yet. I miss snow. :-(

It's snow everywhere here, it was even snowing gently when we went out this morning. But it doesn't feel that cold yet, it hasn't got down to -10C or below yet.

Johno - 44C is too much man !

In Australia we have almost no collective understanding of what 'really cold' is.

When I was with IBM I had a trip to Seoul in Sth Korea in February. So I packed my winter weight stuff - car to the office door sorts of things. I was going from 35C to minus 25C and the hostie was getting worried about me crossing the air bridge to the terminal when we arrived. Nah, she'll be right - famous last words. Fair dinkum, it was cold enough to freeze the balls off a billiard table, as some would say.

Interestingly the extremes are equally deadly to the unprepared or the very old and very young. Babies still die when left in a car in the sun in the shopping centre carpark for a couple of minutes and all sorts of folks still perish, mainly as a result of breakdowns, in the hotter, isolated central parts of the country.

That said I think I prefer our warmer climate even though it is going to be above 40C today and tomorrow. Plus, beer tastes better on a hot day.

Not me. It doesn't get that hot here, usually about 35 to 37C at the worst in July and August, but the humidity is 95 to 100%. Even in winter it can be 25 to 30C for weeks, and just as humid.

Today I spent an hour washing the road salt from the car dressed in only a pair of shorts, then spent about an hour in the pool. Yes, its back to normal, and tomorrow....back to work.
