I am near brisbane which is half way up the east coast so we I believe are probably like california. We had temps in the day up to about 27 until a week ago and then it suddenly got cold down to about 14 [sorry thats celcius] We just have a cold wind at the moment but beautifuul clear days. Our winters are usually dry with lovely days and the lowest we go is about 6 at night. We never get snow where I am. Australia does vary a lot though. The northern parts are very hot and the southern parts colder. My cousin is further up the coast and she was swimming and snorkelling the other day while I was wearing my sheepskin boots. My son lives in Montreal and we often at this time of the year have around the same type of weather with his being summer and mine being winter lol.
How interesting! One would never think (ok..at least me) that the island would be so vastly different in temps between north and south. It does seem somewhat similar to here. Yes, celsius-- I remember I was living in Alberta Canada when Canada changed everything to Metric and I asked my Aunt omgosh..how am I going to buy my vegetables etc and know the weight how much to buy - now I have to convert on the go :( She said buy what you usually buy and your brain will adjust to the difference in the metric system as time goes. And I said oh great..NOT..and what about temps? Gee how am I going to dress when the forecast is 15 or 28..she said just go out and check it..again..it will just come and omygosh...she was so right. I never did the calculations. I just adjusted. She was only 10 yrs older than I and just so cotton pickin common sensical! Now if only the Americans would understand that and get with the rest of the world and go metric..so so easy.
