So true. I live in Australia, and it's true that some parts of the country are colder than others, but I live in the hot part. The coldest it's ever been in my area is 20F and that was overnight. I feel like my fingers will fall off on winter mornings, which generally sit around 45-50F, and I put on a jacket below 70F.

On the other hand, we enjoy the day at 90F, a hot summer day for us is anything above 105F, and the last heat wave we had, temps peaked at 117F. Apparently people in new york die on what we consider a nice summers day.
