Right now it's nearly 25 degrees and I'm still in shorts, so yes winter is clearly coming
Ha Brisbane , that'd be right , and once again l';m thinking l have to move up nth again. lt's mean and miserable here.
Time to get the ugg boots out and don a flanno shirt over the iron maiden T-shirt. Better throw them in the washer first for their bi annual clean.
Are they the winter weight uggies & flanno?
Time to trim the mullet too.
I absolutely adore this invigorating cold weather. I remember longing for it during the horrible summer we just had. Might have to move to Tassie one day as they have the best weather in the country. Your dog's a sweetie btw Lizzie.
A glorious expected top temperature of 7C in Canberra today. With wind chill it's -0.4C Just right for shorts and T-shirt.
My daughter lived for a year in Calgary, Canada, where it gets to -30ºC (even sometimes -20ºC in summer). Even after growing up in Canberra, she found +8ºC minimum in Sydney unbearably cold.
I’m in my warm pjs under a blanket watching News Breakfast with the dog curled up in my lap. I should probably start working soon!
I heard that there was a cold front coming & a cool day today so I whacked on jeans & a long sleeve Tee.
It's twelve degrees and I just stepped outside. I'm overdressed.
It's fresh this morning in Brisbane. Just checked and it is 17 and will get up to 24 today. But it is windy outside, so feels colder than it is.
I love our winters, but downside is that I cannot wear some of the beautiful coats I could further south. And our humidity in summer is the pits.
I might as well wear odd socks to keep my feet warm at home... nobody will see them.
You got another pair just like that?
The difference is - in those genuine really cold countries - they build the houses/workplaces/infrastructure for it - and they dress for it. In Australia we build and dress for 12 months of summer
I'd offer to take them off your hands - as I love a beautiful (and unique) coat - but fear you're a few sizes smaller than me
The most difficult thing I find is trying, unsuccessfully I might add, is to explain to a Queenslander what a jumper is. They do tend to get even more confused if they are originally from New Zealand.
I've worked out the problem, you've put on two left socks.
It was noticeably cooler on the water this morning (6 am), with at times, gusty westerly winds.
Not a fan of winter at all. I would have been heading to Karumba later this month to avoid the cold, and returning here to Yamba around November when the place warms up again.
Give me The Endless Summer anyday over the cold!
Totally balmy here...not....
Doesn't look like Boardshorts and T-Shirt weather to me.....think I'll pass.
