We only have six days for the month when it was hotter in Sydney than Melbourne. Sydney average 25.9. Melbourne average 29.1.

I recently heard that the reason Australia's financial centre has moved from Melbourne to Sydney was the widespread availability of air conditioning. I am not so sure about this one. Of course these observations don't take humidity into account and Sydney is known to be more humid than Melbourne, but Melbourne has been very humid lately too.

Perhaps Sydney is not so bad but Tasmania would suit me better. More days of sunshine than Melbourne and probably Sydney, just not so bluddy hot.

Later edit: The figure for Melbourne's temp sounds a little high. It must have been the calculators fault.

  1. Perhaps Sydney is perfecting a way of sending all their bad things down south.

  2. I was trying to be positive about Sydney and mollify Steph after calling Sydney filthy. Would she be one of the bad things that might come south?
