…the coldest March morning in 50 years!!

Who says it’s always warm in the Tropics? This morning, Cairns suffered the cruelty of its coldest March morning in more than fifty years. The sudden cold snap sent locals scurrying for their fur coats and huddling together to conserve body warmth. It is almost April, but nobody expected the weather to change so dramatically. It was just without warning. So far, there have been no reports of fatalities caused by this extreme weather.

Official reports claim that in the wee hours of this morning, the 31st March 2009, the mercury plummetted to just 17.7 degrees.

 Brrrr…. almost enough to make you consider closing the bedroom windows…

    Seriously, how can human beings be expected to tolerate such harsh temperatures????

    Luckily, it has warmed up again since, with blue skies and daytime temps back in the 30’s where they belong!
