Bring it on. This has been the coldest June I can recall for quite a while.

My dear old spinster piano teacher always said to me, when I was about 13, "I always look forward to the Winter Solstice, because I know that Summer is on its way back, then!"

Takes a while for the sun to start rising earlier this month, though.

We're off to somewhere warm on the 1st July, though!

For some of us, Summer never went away, just a small change in temperature, humidity and the degree of wetness. Not that I'm gloating mind you.

Ron, The people in the snowfields might not agree. They're still waiting for a proper dump of white stuff.

John & Val - Yeah, that white stuff isn't for me! I could never figure out why people want to play in the stuff I find in my freezer tray.
Just going into the meat and dairy section of Coles or Woolies is enough to give me the shivers!
Lucky we're all different, though, eh?

I guess they'll get a good Southerly blast soon enough, though, that will dump some of the white stuff on them.
The weather experts reckon we're in for a dose of El Nino and an accompanying warm winter. We'll find out soon enough if they're right, I guess.

Cheers, Ron.

With you on that one PhilD.

From Perth myself but sitting in a nice little CP just a bit south of Darwin at the moment. Too bloody cold down south. Actually had the air con on in the van for a bit this afternoon.

Ron, yeah I could never figure out what the attraction is of chillblains and icicles hanging off the end of the nose.
Give me a nice 30 degree day any time.......like today for example, or yesterday, or the one before that, and I am reliably informed for tomorrow...and no I'm not gloating....honest...(;=))

Can't complain up here in Darwin.
Was mid 30's out at the V8 races today.
It started warming up once we went north of Tennant Creek, been swimming daily at Mataranka, Bitter Springs, Katherine Gorge, Edith Falls, Litchfield, Darwin wave pool...............

Couldn't help but gloat a bit. Sorry all at home.

Cheers

I spent a lovely winter solstice in Canberra visiting family until I went out to start the car yesterday morning and she had a flat battery.
Doh - thankfully in the NRMA as hubby had been left at home and I only had his mother for assistance.
