2. Hey Rhi

I chuckled this week when National Geographic *formally recognised the Southern Ocean. We've been calling the space under Australia and above Antarctica that for years.

It's the only unbroken stretch of water circling the globe. With no land in the way to deflect, the winds get pretty severe. Winter solstice is in ten days.

Much of the time it is a warmish, pleasant, temperate climate. Every so often.... WOW.
