I've suddenly remembered that the Winter Olympics will be held in 2010.
A quick google has revealed that they will take place in and around Vancouver, which as we are 8 hours ahead will make watching most live events a nocturnal exercise.
I like watching winter sports so I'm wondering if I can set up a portable TV in the workroom to keep an eye on while I work as there will no doubt be wall-to-wall coverage during the day.
They run from 13 through to 28 February, so in conjunction with my SAD lamp I now have the perfect antidote to the winter blues.
Edit: just been browsing the alpine skiing portion of the website and THIS rather puts our paltry couple of inches of snow last week into perspective.......
