Queensland Summer


The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.

Hot water now comes out of both aps.

You learn that a seat belt buckle akes a pretty good branding iron.

The temperature drops below 35C and you feel a little chilly.

You discover that in February it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.

You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.

You develop a fear of metal car door handles.

You break a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.

Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up
lying on the pavement and cook to death?"

You realise that asphalt has a liquid state.

Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying
hard-boiled eggs.

The cows are giving evaporated milk.

The trees are whistling for the dogs

Cold Enough For You?

You should have made a reference to Ballarat. That place has its own Arctic Circle!
