Ohhh no! Slept with a hot water bottle last night, caught a lift up to Melbourne (hailed and rained all the way), pigged out on the leftovers in the
fridge, had an epic battle with the central heating system, eventually won, and laid down to read a book for the next 6 hours, glancing outside
occasionally only to see more rain.
Well, at least all this keeps the tourists away from my town!!!
Anyways, it never got past 15°C (59°F) in Melb, which is apparently the coldest it's been on crissy day since they started keeping records.
Back home right now, I can't feel my feet. Nope, I can tell ya, your friend definitely wasn't telling porky pies!
There was snow on Mt. Buller, a popular skiing mountain mid-year. But since there have been bushfires raging around it's base for some time now, that
can only come as a relief to the firefighters.
EDIT: bbcode? nah, dunno how to use it
