Flag of Australia  , Victoria,
Thursday, July 20, 2006

We sat in front of the TV before work, bleary eyed, munching our cereal and watching the news, the bottom right hand corner of the screen flashing up the regional temperatures for Victoria.
Echuca would be 14 degrees today, it informed us.

"Double figures in the middle of winter," I said, "Can't fault that really."
The three other Brits in the room concurred.

Just as I was about to stand up and leave the TV announced;
"NORTHERN HEMISPHERE SWELTERS IN HEATWAVE!" The report was accompanied by footage of shirtless men and small children with ice creams, just to hammer the point brutally home.

A stunned silence ensued, quickly followed by muttered obscenities.

I swore at the TV and walked out to scrape the ice off my car.
