I think it hit -6C once around here for about half an hour when I was a lad. No, I think I might be exaggerating... more like -4C for twenty minutes.
What part of Queensland, Rob?
I once saw the Brisbane TV weather man shivering because max for the day had been +7: "unbelievably cold" he shivered.
(Wangaratta had +7 as a maximum on the same day!)
He had probably never heard of Jac's Nunavut and the temps there!

Manzanita is a great place. The beeswax is a key part of a local legend.

A few years ago I recall it snowed in Armidale on Christmas Day. Adelaide was cold enough I wore a very warm jacket I normally can only wear on half the days of winter.

Well I took that photo in 1997.

With film. Remember film?

I didn't even own a cell phone then.

And my Ricoh XR2S. A nice film camera that utilizes the Pentax K mount. Of course this was way before things like GPS use was common, the Internet was but a Babe in the Woods, and the livE hociR had yet to become a threat to all that we know and love.

No. I think it's like when you overheat your milk in the morning ... You know, there's that white layer thingy there that won't go away

Ahh, yeah, I've noticed old people like warm milk, so now I know what they are talking about when they say film. It must warm their bones talking about the good ol' days before brewing coffee with red bull to kickstart things.
