What's in a degree?
It's strange how cold Sydney can feel. We have such mild temperatures in winter compared with other cities in Australia and overseas and yet I'm sure I've felt colder here than in those.
Yesterday I returned to Sydney after spending four days in Paris where on the last day the temperature was only a degree higher than here and yet whilst I walked around Paris feeling chilly but not frozen I felt really cold here and couldn't wait to get the heater and blankets out.
Perhaps it is the wind chill factor but yesterday the rain was pouring and I doubt there was any breeze let alone wind about.
