A hot and cold heart

14:22 EST

Alice Springs sits at the centre. Geographically, the town is roughly 1500 km equidistant from both Darwin and Adelaide. Culturally, it demarcates 'up north' from 'down south'. And meteorologically, at 23 degrees latitude, it separates the tropics from the mid-latitudes, marking the general limit for the reach of southern cold-fronts.
