Sunny Summers, Cold Winters and Very Little Rain

Our summers are incredible. Not too hot (though we usually have a stretch or two of 30C), filled with sunshine and socializing, festivals and other community gatherings. Plus, it rarely rains and every year we have more hours of sunshine than just about anywhere else. But even our cold winters are nothing to be scared of. Dress properly, and you're ready for anything.
