Does anyone know where the Canberra “rule” about heating staying off till after Anzac Day comes from?
It’s one of those things I’ve always known but can’t remember how I came to know it.
A comment on an earlier RiotACT post on how to survive your first winter here indicates that Canberrans have stuck to the rule since oil heaters warmed our homes.
I wondered whether the average temperatures for April backed up the Anzac Day theory, and found some charts on San Francisco-based Weatherspark.com’s website that answered that question instantly (and made me shiver a little too).
So, what happens at your place? Have you turned the heater on yet? Is the Anzac Day rule cruel or cool with you?
