Cold

Winter has finally arrived, laying a heavy frost on everything. I see on my external thermometre that last night hit -1C


I don't subscribe to the Australian way of dertermining the start of winter as the 1st June because our cold days don't start until after the solstice. Apparently in the Colonial Days the NSW Corps (aka The Rum Corps) changed from their summer uniform to the winter uniform on the 1st March. It was "officially" Autumn. Since then we have out seasons start on the first of a month.


That's silly.


The office is cold. I've shut most of the doors in an effort to warm my bit. Luckily I'm the only one here today so I won't get complaints from the others.
