    OH how I'd love to say it's too hot! I live in Connecticut (USA) and we just came out of a cold snap. Yesterday morning it was 11F which I think converts to -12C. Add in the windchill and it felt even colder than the 11F/-12C!

    I hate the cold, I hate snow. I really believe I am an island girl trapped in a New Englanders body! Give me hot and humid all day any day over cold! I'm the crazy tourist who purposely books a vacation to a Caribbean island at their most hot and humid times!

    Ceridwyn what is 'freezing' to you in terms of temp. What is Melbourne's average temp for winter?

    Freezing - when it has been 1-2 c overnight and I am getting in the car The days are 9-10c.We do have it better in summer than the Northern states though, for when it is hot during the day in Victoria it usually cools down to 18-29 degrees c at night so that sleeping is no problem.Last night however that did not happen.The Caribbean in summer, hot and steamy sounds like going to Queensland or up north somewhere, madness! In summer. It's also the rainy season up north so it's steamy most of the time at the moment.When it is winter time in Melourne - Victoria that is the time to head north for warmer weather. Queensland is nice then. 20 -30 degrees.

    We do have mountains nearby and a ski season, which lasts about 3 months in winter.I hate the stuff just like looking at it from a distance!

    Wow, I was happy when we got up out of the single digits (farenheit) this morning! We spent several weeks in Australia a few years ago and loved every minute of it! People were so generous and kind, it was a wonderful experience .

    I hope it cools down for you soon, though--but not freezing, lol.

    I am Irish I am not built for the kind of heat that we experienced yesterday. I am not looking forward to the next few weeks.

    I know it is pretty selfish as Tassie is burning to the ground and parts of VIC as well.

    Up to 38 okay for me, less than 22, too cold for the day.

    As long a it cools down at night, you have a break from it.....

    Hope you have a better nights sleep tonight.

    And to those of us in the farenheit system, 44 sounds pretty comfortable, actually...
