Heidi ... and Arctic Blast
Completely off this topic, we had some fun this week going to a film called 'Arctic Blast', surely the one and only disaster movie that will ever be filmed right here in Hobart, Tasmania. I don't think this film will have a wide audience outside Hobart, but the cinema was packed with locals having a right old giggle. See teenage surfers snap-frozen at the local beach as the arctic (surely that should be Antarctic?) blast rolls in! See looting and panic at the local K&D when Hobartians realise things are about to get chilly (like we don't already own a full wardrobe of polar fleece and every type of heater?) See ourselves lying frozen in the street and a plane crashing into the centre of our city, even though the flight path is thirty km out of town! I'm not sure if it will be good for tourism. I guess I'll find out if business plummets at the market.
