Does the land sort of reach up and try to grab you by the ... erm, bits? I too am glad you live on a hill.
Was going to complain that in February 'round here was being a bit jerky, first down below 0 farenheit, then up to 50, And down to 10 below, and up to 59 with two days of rain, right into 1/2 day of ice and then plunging below just enough to freeze the roads then an hour later 3 inches of snow. Winter should be vaguely stable, not all higgledy-piggledy like a Po-Go Stick.
I will stick with this, you have massive fires, massive smoke, massive water and BUGS, SNAKES, SPIDERS, DEADLY KOALA'S (ask Del), KILLER CROCS, JELLYFISH and lord only knows what else. I would be scared to visit.
