Ahhhh, the beauty of the Internet.  It is great to see how others live
and to hear about it first hand.

No, I am not bragging because I am certain that many of you LIKE snow -
we never see it.  Many of you would hate long runs of consecutive 100
degree days (some of you get these in some parts of the USA).  I just
love hearing the different life experiences we have and how they relate
to our cars (like having to pack your LBC away for the Winter - urrk).

Here in Adelaide we are told that our AVERAGE Winter temperatures range
from MIN 46.5F (8C) to MAX 62.5F (17C) with our AVERAGE Summer
temperatures ranging between MIN 60F (15C) and MAX 85F (29C).

Our AVERAGE Winter rainfall is 2.5"/66mm

Funny how AVERAGES never seem to quite tell the story.  That average
Summer maximum of 85F/29C seems to hide the fact that we get seemingly
endless 100F/38F plus days :-)

The most important thing we need to have in our cars is a very heavy
duty sunblock cream - and a hat.
