You can keep that heat we are up for a nice 22 & overcast my type of weather merry crimbo mate .

1st week of winter here in California, cheers to you Mitch & have a safe & merry Xmas :D

Cheers fellas! As they say - around here, if the wildlife aint trying to kill ya, then the weather is!

Have a good Chrissy guys!

Three degrees here, with a big frost last night, the kegs of beer we had in the garden to chill were too cold but still managed to dring them. Keep cool and carry on building!

At least the kegs didn't freeze Dave - that would have been a disaster!! 

Cheers mate!

Yes didn't want a beer slushie!

I can remember going through Renmark the day before I went to Bali and the tour guide there got a shock when I said I went to Bali to cool down because the temperature in  Renmark had been 46. 

At least you've got the Murray to  cool down in and keep the local parks green. 

Yep, 40 degree + summers & plenty of minuses in winter, but springs & autumns are fabulous! Even though it gets hot, at least it's usually a dry heat. Not sure how I'd go in extreme tropical climates though. I suppose you learn to handle/deal with where you choose to live!
