That’s from The Age‘s front page. They aren’t joking. I just poked my head out the door and the heat and blustery winds took my breath away. We’re doing okay here, the house is amazingly cool given the furnace like conditions outside. Even though we can’t have a window open the evaporative air conditioning is doing its best to circulate what little cool air we have. Zita dropped over this morning and has decided to spend the day here in comparative coolness. It’s that sort of day, we’re keeping the kids and cats cool, not exerting ourselves and waiting for the cool change that is only a couple of hours away.
I just checked the BOM site – the city is now at 46.8. That’s unbelievable.
