1 Oh, for the love of... I know y'all are enjoying summer, while we freeze, but do you have to complain about it? I spent this morning wading through two-and-a-half feet of snow in the fields to scrape snow and ice off of our five-meter satellite dishes, and I was the guy with the easy job. The bosses were the poor SOBs shoveling the walks! There are periodic whiteouts on both roads to the University, and the church across the street from my place looks like the bleedin' Matterhorn whenever the wind kicks up. At least all the snow means that it's warmer than last week. Fewer beardsickles forming while we shovel.

2 Well, you chose to live at the North Pole. You do live at the North Pole, right? It doesn't snow like that in normal countries, right?

3 Central Pennsylvania, my friend. We get the weather so's Old Blighty doesn't have to, courtesy of the North Atlantic Conveyor Belt. Tell me that Sydney gets at least a little snow in the winters. I didn't think y'all were that far north...

4 Some parts of Sydney got about five minutes of snow one day in 1986. The last significant snowfalls were in the 1830's. Sydney is about the same latitude as Los Angeles (only south, of course).
