I am now officially over the cold, my electricity bills, and cold feet, nose, and sooo looking forward to Spring!
Having said that, this is the first time we have not even had a real winter here in Sydney.
Okay, I'm feeling the guilt. It is summer where I am. We only have another month left of it though, and then fall hits. My wife and I were just chatting yesterday about how it would be winter before we even knew it and we would need to get ourselves some ice skates or similar so we continue to get out once the snow starts to fall.
It's summer here, though some days you wouldn't know it! We've had a lot of thunderstorms this year and not enough time spent out and about enjoying the sun. We're moving back to England at the end of this month so I'm really looking forward to autumn but not for the usual reasons :)
No I am not because last summer was zoo humid and so hot and seemed so looooooooong.
I hate the humidity and moved to Melbourne years ago, willing to put up with their hot north winds, just to escape the humidity of Sydney and Brisbane. However, the humidity seems to have taken over in Victoria nowadays.
I hate the humidity - it makes me irritable and lethargic, and it makes my hair frizz too.
Always. Give me spring or autumn any day but summer is definitely better than winter in Perth (too wet windy and cold in winter, but the summer days are generally tolerable and not often above 40 degrees). When I'm up in the Pilbara, it's the other way around - summer is 40+ and wet, but autumn spring and winter are dry warm and gorgeous up there, although swimming in the gorges is a bit too cold in winter.
Yes, Yes, YESSS, oh please take the cold away. My feet are freezing.
My fingers are freezing. I am wearing my entire wardrobe during the day, and I have stolen 14 doonas for my bed at night. My door hinges have cobwebs from not being opened, and the windows have jammed shut.
Errr, you get the idea. Thin blood I think, but I just can't get warm and stay warm unless the air is acutally warm(read hot). I am happily nude at home in winter as long as the heater is on toasty mode 24/7. It is just that my body can not tolerate the cold, even after years of midnight to dawn shifts as a youngun, a posting to Wagga and Ipswich, RAAF bases are in the worst cold places ever. But when I was in Darwin and Asia, summer all year long.
The warm sticky air, the storm seasons and the build up troppo fest, to the flash flooding and wild winds, all make it normal for me.
And let's face it, ya can't get an all over tan when you're all curled up and your shivering means the sunshine can't stay on one spot long enough to tan.
Even the blood bank are prepared with 3 heated blankets when I come in, but I must wait till after for that hOT coffee.
Yes I enjoy the heat and sunshine with blue skies.
If the temperature drops below 24'c I feel cold.
I would prefer the temperature to be between 24'c at night and in the daytime 28 - 34'c.
It is easier and cheaper to get cool than spending to keep warm.
Yes, you mean summer heatwaves, etc! I don't like winter, where 1 has to wear so many extra cloths, & we can't go to Melbourne as often in winter, because it's so cold, standing around the park with the granddaughters.
