Sweetie, I'd feel sorry for you, but, you see, I've felt 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Often. That computes to -17.7778 in celsius. And don't even get me started on below-zero days! Frozen water pipes...cars won't start... And in the upper plain states they actually have to plug their cars into an engine block heater so the car will start. To those people "freezing" is still shorts weather.

OK, NOW I'm headed to the basement to work. Honest!

Yes, I know, same as the UK, they get it much colder than here, that is for sure!

We normally dont get it this cold here in Adelaide, so it is freezing to us

I have noticed a trend though now, so it looks like it will be this cold in Winter from now on...still love Winter though

The only thing I like about winter is the beauty of the first snowfall. After that spring can come anytime, in fact immediately.

Okay Kylie, time to torture you. It is 74F. with winds out of the south at 1 mph. The National Weather Bureau is located just a mile or so from where I live at the airport. It is on a peninsular and the temperature there is affected by the winds off the water. So it is much warmer inland. Absolutely perfect weather. And tomorrow is going to be even better.

Oh Dear! I just remembered payback is a b*tch!

Addie, once you head inland some distance it ain't "perfect" anymore. I can feel the humidity moving in, got the windows open and the fan pulling air through just to chill the house down. Might be 66 degrees outside by me, but the humidity is about 80% and rising. The toilet paper in the bathroom should not feel like it's already been used when it's still on the roll! Camping memories...

We'll be closing up and putting the A/C on before we hit the sack and probably won't turn if off until Friday AM.

I saw the weather report. It is going to be in the 90's. Oh joy! Maybe some thunderstorms Thursday night. I am right on the ocean. So I get better weather than the interior. Tomorrow I have to make a run to the store on my scooter. It will be early in the morning before the heat is at its peak.

Ahh yes 23 degrees is a lovely Spring day for us

It is not torture though Ads for me...as I LOVE Winter...I really do, people may think that is odd, but I do!

It is Summer I cant stand....Spring is lovely, Autumn is wonderful

Hot and humid, my car thermometer said 90F. No rain for quite awhile.
