home sweet home

an experience of city and town

I grew up in a small outback town called Wilcannia NSW.
 
Eight years ago I moved to Tenterfield. It was definitely a sea-change. In Wilcannia, we had long hot dry summers with temperatures exceeding 40 degrees and short winters.
 
Here in Tenterfield, I found it was quite the opposite with temperatures that plummet to a low minus-17 in the very long winters and summers that don't seem to exist.
