Melbourne temperature is getting down there. This morning it was 9 C (48 F), which apparently is the normal low for this time of year (the dashed lines above). My office itself was 16 C (60 F), which is a wee bit chilly.

Personally, I like the cold. The first year I lived in Portland, OR, I was in an old house that had a giant dirty oil furnace. We turned it on once and soot and dirt blew everywhere and it sounded like a jet engine. Instead, we would drive down to the warehouse district and round up some scrap lumber for the fireplace. It's a wonder the pipes didn't freeze.
