AFL Grand Final = Granny.

That weekend the wind was ice cold, consistent AND it seemed to be coming from a different direction than it usually does.

Ah-ha! I was picturing a musical with a Granny chorus line or something. The weather this time of years is changeable anyway, but Melb must really be wearing its "4 seasons, 1 day" hat right now!

That would be The Producers I'm thinking.

Crap, Melbourne weather made it to SYdney? Wow next the whole world will be under Melbourne rule, the Melbourne Empire with King 吧b as the president...oh wait I already rule the kingdom of Saab Island :crazy:

Everything does look so much more romantic yadda yadda blahdeblah in the rain. Until you have to go out in it.

nail on the head. Cold rain is about as romantic as a gigantic redwood sized horse turd rotting away to oblivion under the desert sun.

A clear, full moon night is far more romantic IMO.

Do you think that's a fair comment from my end, should they tease me about the cold?
In Melbourne, anything over 20C at night is considered *hot*, oweing to the rareity of such weather. I recall in school overhearing one girl going on about how its "going to be a hot night" when an overnite low of 20C was forecast. It's not hot, it's merely comfortable enough to enjoy outdoor activities without having to look like an eskimo.

With your well known love and devotion towards Melbourne's fickle weather

In fact it would be just like discussing climate without Coldcanadian's input
It would be just plain wrong
lol! I'm very *passionate* about our funtastic climate

Don't I know it.
Though, perhaps a 20 C low might make a 35+ C high "feel" muggier than a low that's lower than 20 C.

We don't usually get crazy-highs,
but it's perfectly normal when the weather takes it's sweet time to cool down overnight;
sometimes 11 pm doesn't feel much different than it did in the shade at 11 am.

Take this year for example:
Our all-time high was 31 C and we did not hit 30 C even once this July, ()
but we must have had at least a dozen lows at 20+ C,
including at least one low at 23 C which happened on a day with a high of only 29 C.
