Australia: colder than you might think

Sydney is going through a bit of a cold snap this week, one of the first weeks of winter. The daily maximum temperature is hovering around 10 degrees, but it’s very windy which of course makes it feel much colder.

Now, that’s nothing like as cold as I used to experience every year in Canada. But since almost none of the houses around here have insulated walls, or double-glazed windows, or central heating, and many – like mine – have substantial amounts of exterior glass walls, home interiors get damned chilly.

I didn’t notice this as much last year when we were renting an apartment on the ground floor of a building, where we had other, heated apartments insulating us on one side and above. But I’m feeling it now.
