I have heard that some people that live in your area even haven't seen snow in their entire life. For me the sun is very important, makes me happy.

Yeah, it's not surprising that not everyone gets to see snow. My parents, for example, have never seen snow, because they don't to travel as much, and usually not during winter.

The sun makes me happy too, but sun 24/7 and high humidity aren't always the best combination.

Yes, does that make us a superpower or what?

I wish we had weather that follows the weather forecast and have the same weather through a whole day. In one day in Iceland you can expect all seasons and all weathers..

Well here in Australia we NEVER get snow, but guess what, the best tropical weather you could imagine, think beautiful sunny days, beaches, relaxing weather....

But nice warm days down here for me are something of the ordinary, i wouldnt mind to see something like Snow or weather below 5 degrees celsius as its never colder than that over here....

Echoing what auspolak said I'd love to have snow on Christmas day for something different. Living in the intetior of Australia my Christmas day is generally spent in 45C heat which is generally not overly enjoyable and makes the traditional hot Christmas dinner less desirable!!

Cheers,

I disagree. Australia is so large, that you can't really generalise about the weather. For instance, compare Tasmania to tropical North Queensland. Where a good portion of the population live, Sydney and Melbourne, the weather's not at all tropical.

And we "NEVER" get snow??? Huh??? Have you not heard of the NSW or Vic ski fields???
