Welcome, Winter!

Today officially marks the first day of winter. I am been looking forward to this season since the start of Summer in December 05.

Those of us in Brisbane woke up to a chilly 5C while our mates in the outer western suburbs, a bitterly cold -2C! I doubt many of them took a shower before heading out this morning.

The picture on your left, is what the State of Queensland looks like (for those who are not aware). The capital being Brisbane.

We are the second largest state in this country measuring more than 1.72 million square kilometres, 25% of Australia's land mass, which is four times the size of Japan, nearly six times the size of the UK and more than twice the size of Texas in the US.
