and the loudness of air-conditioning units
When talking about the weather in Canberra (a safe topic for conversation if ever there was one), I often claim that though hot during the summer, it’s still quite bearable because it cools down during the nights, and it’s possible to sleep quite comfortably. This is true, but our neighbours don’t seem to realise it. They think the nights remain hot, and leave their air-conditioning on rather than just opening their windows. This forces us out of the main bedroom, which is close to their loud air-conditioning unit, and into the second bedroom.
