    How odd Ken ! I dance Argentine tango. And this hall is used as a regular venue for dancing tango by Tango Gippsland. There is a dance and party on tomorrow afternoon from 1.30 pm

    So there will be a big crowd there with their cars parked in those two car parks helping to warm up the BOM thermometer !

    Which is one of the reasons why BOM screen are supposed to be well away from car parks ! Of course the car parks themselves have an effect !
