Yup I come across that a lot.
Wether to bother the weather?
First thought was a Billy Connolly saying "No such thing as bad weather.. Just bad clothing"
I grew up in Scotland, Anything above 12C was T shirt weather. Now in Oz where I've seen the roads literaly melt.
Any weather above blood temp requires more consideration than below zero.
Totaly get the mixed units of measurment. I was in primary school when UK went decimal on the money. Another 20 or so years before milk was in ml instead of pints then some more years for petrol to go metric. Not been back since 1994, Is beer still in pints?
Funny enough here in Oz you can now buy your beer in pints instead of midis or jugs, going retro?
p.s. Huntress, hope your exams are/went great for you.
