As we are based in the Southern Hemisphere, we have summer at Christmas and Winter in July.
I live in Sandton, Johannesburg and we get the most beautiful blue winter skies. We generally don’t get any rain in winter (Except for this week as it’s been pissing it down for days). So although it gets rather cold over night, settling at around zero degrees Celsius, the days warm up to around 18 degrees Celsius. Most days are very comfortable but we do get the odd cold spell where it really is freezing. We don’t get any snow out here but we have had the odd sprinkling of what we would describe as snow but probably isn’t.

I have a beautiful tree just outside my house which keeps my lounge and bedrooms lovely and cool in Summer and it loses all its leaves in winter and allows the light and warmth in.

Although our winters are reasonably mild here, I hate the cold.
