    BTW It is a balmy 28 degrees in Doomadgee though we are expecting low 20's tomorrow.

    You going to pop down, on the off chance, Paul?
    It could be a cultural shock for the boys.
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    ďIíve been told snow is cold and wet..Ē. Well I have worked in snow a fair bit, logging and dozer operating , and it is curious that it is not cold nor wet, I know this defies physics and chemistry, however it is not that unpleasant.

    Sleet, hail ,melting snow ,black frost, cold wind all take the shine off sitting on an open cab TD 30 or humping a big Stihl but snow can be a wonderland.

    So donít be bashful Ian and Paul. get yourselves down to Tassie and spend a couple of months at Waratah or Liawenee

    In many places in the world it is dry and fluffy. Just not in Australia, usually.

    Playing rugby in sleet, coming in side-ways, in Ballarat in mid-winter, is an experience to be avoided.

    Especially when playing away when you hit the showers after the game.

    They would die!
    As you know Wilma is skin & bone, Wilfred would love it but no stop shiver & McQuillen dressed like an Eskimo to go to school this morning.
    It's chilly here tonight, the A/C's have gone into reverse cycle so it must be.
