It must be damn cold down south - only 11 degrees on the verandah here in Darwin this morning and the Met Bureau reckons it will get colder over the next few days.

A bit hard to handle for us topenders.

Just dropped my daughter off at a drama class this morning. The car's thermometer says 12.9 outside. That's in Sydney.

Hard to imagine Darwin at 11. What next, snow?

I was in Sydney in June 3 years ago and at the time I figured it was the most miserable and cold place I had ever visited.

The good thing about up here in the top end is that the mercury will hit the high 20's by mid morning.

In Melbourne it's what a mate of mine used to call "knacker weather", in that it was cold enough to freeze them off.

It's gonna be cold at the MCG tomorrow, might have to sneak in a little something to warm me up.

I've only ever been to Melbourne once and that was in the middle of summer - I got there at around 10am and was gone by midday - not a nice place, but I wish I was going to the MCG tomorrow - GO THE BOMBERS!!

Jeff,

Only two hours in the (officially) "World's Most Liveable City". You missed out on plenty, pity. Try it again some time and get someone who knows the place to give you some tips on where to go, I'd be happy to.

I'm assuming you must have been here on a HOT day. Not like that all the time in Summer. It's not unusual to run the air con one day and the heating the next.

I also lived in Townsville for eight years. Turn the airconditioner on in October and off again in May. But its beautiful at this time of year. Oh to be rich and retired and able to follow the weather around the country.

Bombers by ten goals in a return to true form, a re-run of the 2000 Grand Final, I was there, what a great day. I was also there in 2001 when we got beaten by the Salary-Cap Lions, not such a great day.

Jim.

G'day Jim,

It was a hot day, not that the heat worried me all that much - I just couldn't handle the crowds of people. I was a country boy and any more than 10 people in one gathering was a bit too much. I'll get back down that way sooner or later if only to watch a Bombers game.

I hope you are right with your tip of 10 goals over Melbourne - we are not getting the game televised up here so I will have to try and pick it up on a radio station.

Not too well Les. I can tell you Geelong is bloodly cold, wet and windy but inside my house it's just nice and cosy.Hopefully we'll get some snow on the high hills and then it's pack up the kids and play time...love it.

I think the "Salary-Cap" Lions will do just fine. The Beatles sang "Money can't buy you love", but the SC Lions are living proorf it can buy you a good footy team. Just like Carlton late 70's early 80's.

G'day Steve,

I worked in your part of the country about 40 years back out on Ororral Valley station for a bloke named Gordon Gregory. Gordon still has a place at Tharwa I think - called 'Freshford' from memory.

I can still vividly remember getting snowed in one year when I had to spend 5 days in what was known as 'Oldfield's Hut' - I lived on a tin of dark plum jam and a few parrots I managed to knock over with an old Lithgow single shot .22 rifle. That was a cold experience.
