I don't understand how people can live in this part of the world.
Having said that, it's probably the wrong time of the year to be travelling south, and apparently this cold snap was unusual.
It's been bloody freezing, and when it wasn't freezing,it was wet. In Queensland, especially North Queensland, being outdoors in the rain can be pleasant, but here, it reminds me of the line in the poem -
"And if misery man could vex
There it beat on our bended necks"
Enough whingeing - this is supposed to be about the car.
The car's been great. In fact, the colder it became, the better it seemed to perform. The heater works very well.
The sun came out at Hay, and it looks like tomorrow will be sunny.
But today, the wind felt as if it had come straight from the Antarctic.
No wonder the Mexicans come up our way in Winter.
