Reasons why the ACT is better than NSW – Ice

By johnboy 8 August 2008 24

In our ongoing series of things which are better in the ACT than in NSW I present ice. As in frozen water.

Yes I realise the surrounding regions of NSW also get it occurring naturally. And what of Deniliquin I hear you ask? What of it? I reply.

90% of the population of NSW never see it lying on the ground versus 100% of the ACT population so we’re going to claim it.

Ice transforms our world, demands we ask questions of it, and promotes a sense of wonder.

I pity those who don’t have it.

What’s Your opinion?

There’ll be plenty of this stuff around tonight and tomorrow. There’s a corker of a coldie moving in on us, an dit’s already cold-as down in Canberra. 1.5 c at 10pm, that’s rather unusual. They’re forecasting snow down to very low levels tomorrow, which means it probably won’t happen.

That puddle has been at the Ainslie oval for about 3 or 4 weeks now and doesn’t seem to be getting any smaller. As long as the mud doesn’t start to rot, if that is how you describe old mud that smells rank, then I don’t mind getting mud stains all over my kit each week.

As chillun, on crisp Canberra morns we used to pick up ice out of the storm water drains and throw it at each other – green ice is rad.

One of the coldest places I can remember being at is junior footy at the big Amaroo Oval…the one at the back of Amaroo school. The wind just rips down those hills at the back and there is nowhere to hide.

I’m with you Johnboy. Love the winter here. I wish we were about 300 metres higher and then we’d almost get a ‘european winter’. If it’s going to be this bloody cold, it may as well be 5 degrees every day and get some serious snow every year !!

So much for global warming! What a joke, best excuse for government revenue making since speed cameras!
