Canberra- beautiful one day, stunning the next.

By Thumper 11 July 2007 27

This isn’t a news item but more an observation.

This morning whilst driving to work I could not but be stunned by the beauty of the slightly fog shrouded sun sitting low on the eastern horizon as it shone dimly through wisps of grey pink clouds.

Adding to this was the cold, crisp and fresh air that condenses when you breathe out, and that certain crunch that your shoes make when you tread upon a frosty lawn.

All in all, it may be cold in Canberra in the winter, but days like today are simply superb.

Yeah Thumper. It’s funny how zero doesn’t feel that much different from minus 30. But as I learned, there is a BIG difference. I’m still dealing with something weird happening with the skin on one foot, that seemed to suffer worse than the other. It’s not good. They never actually turned black, but…

Compared to Washington DC where I lived many years ago, Canberra is not cold at all.

Still cold enough though 🙂

I love Canberra weather, especially the cold winters, they’re invogorating! But then I’ve lived here most of my life so I guess I’m biased!

The winters are great, autumn and spring are amazing, but the summers are way too hot. I have noticed that most people who go on about how lovely the hot weather is, have air conditioning in their cars, homes and workplaces. (And here in winter, my house isn’t heated!).

In the mornings, I park my car so that the rising sun hits it and melts the windscreen enough for the wipers, by the time I head out at 7.45am.

That said, the cold here is nothing compared with many bits of the northern hem. in winter. The cold there was like a physical, tangible force… it’s damaged many bits of me, that were fully clothed when the damage happened.

These freeeeezing mornings are another reason why the disorganised bus system is in crisis. If it ran on time I’d catch it, but I can’t stand around at the bus stop watching my own breath for more than 5 minutes without thinking I’ll go home and drive…

I must say that in my two years here I have come to enjoy having four clearly distinguishable seasons instead of the bloody hot and not quite so bloody hot we had in QLD.
The wondrous glory of frost covered lawns, golden leaves and clear blue skies still don’t make the sub-zero mornings any easier to bear though.

cheers to those with the insulation hints, i was hoping it was possibly something me and my arachnophobia could tackle by ourselves 🙂

this former tasmanian loves canberra winters – especially the blue sunny skies that we have to accompany it! no horizontal rain like in hobart. and no that is not an open invite to start slamming tasmania.
