Hot August Nights... or Days

Forgive me for complaining but in the southern hemisphere August means winter - and ususally the coldest part of winter. It is time to celebrate comfort food, electric blankets and cosy fires.

Today it got to 32 C (thats 90 F). Yes that is the sort of temperature when you wear bikinis, head for the beach and eat salad. And did I say this is supposed to be the middle of winter!?

Is this a result of global warming? Or, perhaps a conspiracy to 'get' me?

Whichever way you look at it, it is just wrong!

It's probably not much consolation, but the weather in this hemisphere is just as screwy. August is s'posed to be our hottest month, temps normally in the 90's w/high humidity, but the past couple of days have been glorious w/high's in the mid-70's and overnight temps in the 50's. I'm loving it!!!!
