People around here say that Mount Barker is 4 degrees cooler than Adelaide. It's said Upper Sturt is 3 degrees cooler than that.
Bear with me while I set up an illustration for my point. There are three 'towns'; Town S (Upper Sturt), Town I, and Town C. Town I is very small (people-wise), and the main roads are Road I and Road P. Road P is very long, narrow, and windy. Road I is the one you use to passed from Town S to Town C.
A friend of mine lives in Town C, and her mother lives in Town S, and she said the other day that when she was at her mother's, her car thermometer read 9 degrees. She drove along Road I to get home, and where Town S turned into Town I, it read 8. As she passed the end of Road P, it read 6. By the time she got into Town C, it read 8 degrees again.
The moral of the story? Even when everyone says Coromandel Valley is the coldest place in the Hills, the middle of Ironbank is 2 degrees colder.
I don't mean to complain, I just thought that was a funny story. Maybe if you don't live in this area it won't make sense, though.
I was about to say I like this weather. And I do; I've always loved the rain and the cold (yes, I'm crazy). However, then I walked out the back door and found my gum boots sinking into the ground and making disturbing squelching noises (the noises I'm blaming on my sister's ducks, who seem to have covered the ground in... well, you know). I like the rain, but not when it turns the chook run into a bog.
