Oh yeah, it's summer down under right now isn't it? So, how cold does it get down there in your winter?

Sounds like good weather to be inside.  It's a mild 23°C here today, but
earlier this week it was 37° & 41° - really unpleasant when I was
commuting on the bike.  Meant to be 35° next week again, and I can't say
I'm looking forward to it.

This summer's been mostly cool, at least, but it's still not raining. 
It's now the 6th year (I think) we've been drought declared and on water
restrictions.  You kind of get used to it after a while, but every now and then
I remember things like the grass being green in parks, and wonder if it will
ever return.  One of the most memorable things on my trip through Europe last
year was green grass (particularly in Holland), and functioning fountains
(everywhere).  I've lots of photos just of green fields :).

Still, mild weather and no rain means I can get out on the bike more, at least
in theory...
