Oh ok. I guess right now it's actually a good bit warmer in California.

Yes it is. New Orleans had a few warm days this winter, but overall SoCal is much warmer.

So am I! It would be even better if the following happened:
-warmer nights
-thunderstorms and a tad more humid
-warm ocean

Yep. That is Melbourne for ya.

Oh, mid 20s is nothing (Sydney may have 40C days with the temps going down to 25C the next day - that's a nice relief actually). Melbourne is just utterly extreme - 45C today, and 18C the next day. Expect a cold front too in a couple of days even worsening the temps down to 16C. Their summer has a case of a multiple personality disorder or something.

With that being said, they get more sunny/clear days and less rain than Sydney (despite Melbourne's cold gloomy reputation). 'Overcast Cold' shouldn't be envious of Brisbane and most of the east coast as, despite hot, they are pretty much humid and uncomfortable. Melbourne gets dry heat - so the guy should be happy for what they have.

Finally, someone who feels the same way about weather that I do!

I can't say that I hate summer, but it's definitely my least favorite season. Between the weather and the bugs, I have a hard time getting comfortable.

If the dew point is below 20c, it's not a real summer.

Whoah, wait, what about the desert climate? Scorching hot summers with temps at 40C and dewpoint at around 7C to -5C!
