In which I learn the present temperature in Brasilia and Juneau

The kid is having fun by looking up the names of cities he can remember, and finding out the temperature. We are enjoying the very hot and the very cold but the moderate is boring us. Most unlike real life.

I have also learned that there is a place called Livingstone in Scotland, and more than a handful of places called Livingstone in the United States of America. Many of them are experiencing the aftermath of that big snowstorm they had over there.

Apparently the cool change has arrived in Sydney, Australia.

The Internet. It educates and delights and occasionally drives wild with bored horror at the amazing level of detail available to those who can wreak the detail-evil (ie any child under fourteen).

"It's not the heat, it's the humidity"
This is what we always say about the temperature at this time of year. It doesn't (generally) get as warm as the Australian main centres, but the humidity drives up the discomfort level.

So today is 28C. This is just awful. I've been more comfortable at 35C in Melbourne.
