    Although interestingly Ireland seems pretty OK except for a bit of snow over Dublin … much like today in fact …

    But, almost 10 years ago, The Independent assured us that climate change was going to make snow in the UK a thing of the past.

    It’s now being compared to the winter of 1963, which was so impressively cold it’s managed to get multiple hat tips in popular culture.

    It’s going to be 41 in Melbourne on Monday, so perhaps we could share a bit of the heat and get some cold back!

    Beat me to it Conrad, I was about to note the same point.

    Starting a new job on Monday, and am now confused about what to wear … thongs and board shorts with a singlet top is probably not going to be an option ….

    Just remember, socks with sandals don’t make a good impression either…

    Congratulations on the new job, Caz. Best of luck with it.

    Too bad you don’t work in a university :).
