Canberra - Why -5 degree isn't as bad as it sounds
I can just imagine all around Australia tonight there will be people watching the weather and thinking "thank god I don't live in Canberra". And I can understand. On paper a temperature range of -5 to 15 degrees celsius doesn't look good. But here is the reality. -5 means that you have had a clear night with the biggest most sparkly stars and when you spend it snuggled under a thick doona with a loved one it is delicious. And 15 on a day like today means bright blue skies, warm sun, no wind, it is invigorating and beautiful to wander about in. Add in a city coloured red, orange and gold with autumn clothes and you have a stunning day.
Yes you have to dress appropriately - the perfect excuse for accessorising with boots and scarves - but I can say that days like today really are gorgeous and one of the reasons why I love living in this city.
