The weather differences around the world are just crazy! I just realized that it is now, indeed, WINTER in Australia. With +23C. Heck, it is summer here in Latvia, and the exact temperature today in our capital city! And I'm HOT, longing for some rain and cooler temperatures. Last week, when the temperatures hit up to +33C, I was afraid I'd melt!

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

It's just dawn now. Dropped to 6.2.

It routinely goes to -20F here in the winter. Still no blankets. Snow is often waist deep and the horses make little trails all over their pasture. Some winters the trails are more like tunnels. I've had them over my head before.

Haha, I'm in Southern Canada.

Our summers are what we would consider hot. I believe it's going to be 35 on Wednesday. The thing that makes it worse is the humidity.

It's so funny when the outsiders are wearing jackets on our "cold summer days" maybe around 15, and we're out suntanning enjoying the beautiful weather.

I'd be enjoying the beautiful weather, too. Seems that our weather might be quite similar. I consider myself a northener.

Tropical North Queensland doesn't get too cold, so I guess we are lucky, but we get shocking humidity. And it's really bad. Like you'll start melting as soon as you walk outside :/

HowClever; is WA the same with humidity or is it mostly dry heat?

I do admit I turned the fan off in the bedroom window during the night.

We get some horrid humidity over this way, but I would assume nothing like what you guys get in the tropics.

Our hottest day this summer was 41 with humidity of about 85% if I recall correctly. Horrible, melting weather.
