Snow on 'dem der hills

Seems winter has arrived in Victoria. This time last year we were cruising the Mediterranean after visiting Dubai, Lisbon, Porto and Barcelona. We felt terribly cold during our winter last year. Maybe as we are acclimatised this year, it won't be so bad. So far, so good.

    1. Snoskred, I wondered if was cold in your neck of the woods, or just here. A beanie is not a fashion accessory.

    2. Not even a multi-coloured one with a big flower on one side?

    3. Some of mine are incredibly fashionable, but the around the house one is just a rose pink wool thing, super warm and thick, cost me $3 at Cotton On. :)

    4. Certainly not River. Such decoration may lead a person to think it is appropropriate to be worn in public.

    5. Snoskred, fashionable and beanie don't work for me.

  2. Winter is a pain in the bum, every year and in almost every city.

    But we cannot complain this year. It is mid May and today was the first cold day!

    1. Hels, yes. And not once did I hear the phrase Indian Summer. As you would know, creative brains work better in the cold.

  4. Even though our mornings and late evenings are getting cool, during the day we've been very fortunate with great sunny weather. Just to make you jealous on Friday and Saturday we're having a maximum of 30C!! Beating a 56 year old record apparently!

    1. Sami, 22 and I would be jealous. Not 30.

  5. Andrew, I wonder what sort of heating you have in the flat.
    And yet we Brits often think that you have sunshine all year round.
    But tell me I'm right in that you have a two tier weather system... warmer in the Northern Territories and colder down South.

    1. Dee, very much so. The further north, the hotter it gets and the far north is tropical. Reverse cycle air conditioner is our heating.

    1. Strayer, has this been record breaking rainfall?

      Delete
    2. No I don't think so, no records broken, just quite a wet winter but nothing very cold this year.

  7. It hit here yesterday too. Quite quickly. Today we won't reach double digits. I am loving it - but feeling sorry for the tradesmen who start work on Monday replacing our gutters. I hope it isn't windy for them.

    1. EC, under double digits is very cold. I think it has happened here, but rare. You will have to make the tradies a nice hot drink or two.

      Delete
    2. A bit later in the season we will have LOTS of days under double digits. We haven't had a frost yet though.

    1. You'd need to hang in under cover here this morning Lee. It poured all night and is still coming down outside now.

      Delete
    2. Lee, at least you didn't outright brag.

      Cathy, anything like here now, you may be able to have a swim without going to the pool.

    3. I've naught to brag about, Andrew. lol
