Crikey it's cold

Brrrrrrrr!!!
Winter snuck through the front door last night so everyone's sitting around the one and only heater this morning wrapped in blankets, because none of the family owns a jumper, volunteering everybody else to get up and make coffee. Even the Kookaburra's are sulking, our friendly Possum missed out on his nightly visit because we had to shut the bedroom window and to make things even more unbearable is that there is just enough Vegemite left in the jar for only one piece of toast, so that's mine

Misery loves company, donut.
I don't know what a jumper is, but I used to put my hooded sweatshirt and robe in the dryer and wrap myself in that.
I haven't been that cold in almost 10 years - Thank you God.
I forgot all the friends we have here below the equator going into winter. Sorry. I hope it passes quick and lightly.
Keep us posted, attie.

Send some of the cold across the equator, I hate the heat and humidity. I hope I wake to a foot of snow tomorrow, but it looks more like 88F, rain and humidity and the summer is just starting :(

Yes it does middie, in Victoria on the Southern Alps - Snowy Mountains, we have the usual ski resorts etc but cold for us here in Queensland, me anyway, is anything below 10C. Maximum here today will be 20C

It sure is brass monkey weather Tom
