Today a friend of mine who lives in Cyprus posted a temperature update on her Facebook profile - apparently it's "45 degrees and rising" in Larnaca.
A number of her friends also did the same in response. Someone reported that it's low-20's in Sydney.
It's 23 degrees (and falling) in London, which means that we have pretty much the same weather as Sydney.
Difference is, of course, that it's the middle of winter in Australia.
At least London is still dry... I hear it's pouring with rain in Northern Ireland...
