    ... Sorry, just had to make it. :p

    Anyway, it's still freezing in Melbourne. The days have gotten longer and sunnier but not warmer, dammit.

    Discuss?

    The solution is simple; keep your car running overnight. The greenhouse effect will do the rest. We'll be sunning the sandy shores during July in no time!

    and when it's no longer warm, pour it out on your lemon tree: they love the urea, and your lemons will be the better for it!

    We're saving the world one post at the time my New Ager brother.

    As long as im not digging my car out 20 times a winter from 3-6 feet of snow-im happy. It just sucks that i may have to go back to the Colorado mountains in a couple of years. You guys are so lucky down here weather wise-at least to me.

    Steve would never do that!! Ask my daughter, she knows EVERYTHING about the poor late Mr Irwin!

    As for the snow, I have heard we are lucky, and that we have a very temperate climate. I do want to see Colorado though, I hear its magnificent.

    If you like snow up to 9 months a year-you'll love it.

    The reason I love Melbourne so much is that it's cold for a lot of the year. I hate the heat. Love sunshine. Hate the heat.

    everyone at work always tells me, "if you dont kike the weather wait 5 minutes it'll change". Im starting to see that-it can rain then be sunny, then windy then sunny again, and then of course rain again. kinda keeps you your toes.

    I love a slow steady rain, the kind with no wind behind it. Or the light rain on a sunny day that is a little bit warm.
