You Know it is “Summer” in Dunedin when:



  • You can see your breath inside of your house
  • The sun never seems to rise because it is dark and cloudy all day
  • When you walk outside of your flat it is actually no colder than inside – they are both frigid
  • You have to wear underarmor, a sweatshirt, sweatpants, winter coat, hat, gloves, and wool socks to stay warm inside of your flat
  • Your tea stays warm for about 5 minutes and then it is cold
  • Everyone around you is sneezing and coughing
  • You try and think of things you can cook that use the oven in order to heat up one small room of the flat
  • You sleep in your sleeping bag under all of your normal covers of the bed to stay warm at night
  • you open the refrigerator and you’re not sure if the refrigerator is broken because the inside of it feels the same as the temperature of the room
  • You fill a water bottle with warm water and stick it inside of your clothes to help generate some body heat
