Local summer - Ian (Cape Town)
I nicked this elsewhere - thought it was rather funny ...

You know you're in a South African summer when.....

* The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.
* Hot water now comes out of both taps.
* You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
* The temperature drops below 35 degrees and you feel a little chilly.
* You discover that in February it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.
* You develop a fear of metal car door handles.
* You break a sweat the instant you step outside at 06:30am
* Your biggest bicycle-accident fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end
up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"
* You realise that asphalt has a liquid state.

Hi Ian,

Reminds me very much of February in Austalia, 48degC in the shade,

A few more:

1. why australian's insist on A/C as standard but dont understand the concept of a sun roof to let the sun in!

2. Whoever invented the remote central locking had obviously tried touching a black door lock after being parked in the sun

3. insulated reflective steering wheel covers

4. ditto but sunscreens for the dashboard

5. Roos taking up all the shady spots under the trees, when you return to the car the roos are even using the car as a local shade
