Not Winter

It's really not winter, I'm happy to say,
Except maybe further down south.
Up here by Canada it's pretty warm,
No clouds blowing out of my mouth.
The air is quite sticky and lacking in snow
There's ice, but only in freezers.
And nobody's drinking hot chocolate these days,
Preferring those cool lemon squeezers.
So leave off the mittens and put on the shorts
For summer is here and it's kickin'
We'll fire up the grill on the back patio
And eat us some steak and some chicken.

It's nice for you to be all smug and so warm.
On the pavement an egg you could fry.

But here downunder south the teeth freeze in my mouth,
and gray clouds cover the sky.

So just how cold does it get down in your neck of the woods? My perception is that Australia is never particularly cold, but I've never been there.
