    Default For those feeling cold

    Our local temp' here yesterday, 42c = 107.6f. Not far away was 44c = 111.2f. The state just to the west of us recorded a top temp' in the Nth of the state of 47c = 116.6f.
    The small Island state of Tasmania had a top temp of 41c = 105.8f, the highest temp ever recorded there. This was in the capital, Hobart which is in the Sth of the state. A multitute of fires broke out. One fire in Tassie has wiped out a town, many homes & out buildings. 1000's of people have had to be evac'd, many by boats on a river or by sea as all the roads are cut & the fire was surrounding everyone. One person missing, thought to have been caught in the fire, unconfirned atm.
    Our biggest state fire is at 2040ha or 4488 acres & still going. No major threat to life atm.
    Just enjoying a cool easterly breeze now, great relief. Heat returns over the next 7 days, back up to near 40c. Our Nthrn boarder isn't getting this cool, they are looking at around 40c+ for the next 4 -5 days.
    My A/C stopped working about 2pm, too hot outside. It worked about 10pm, cool by 2am.

    Alright, Roy, i got your point:-)

    We have extreme hot weather here in summer too, but I don't recall it exceeds 105. However, we would have 100 degree with 60% humudity.

    My sis-in-law in Melbourne was just telling my wife that she was experiencing temp of 41 yesterday. Ours is around 35 C but it's the humidity of close to 100 that makes it extremely uncomfortable.

    G'day Roy, don't send your lousy 2nd hand hot weather up to us like you usually do. It's a pleasant 30C. on the Sunshine Coast today.

    WOW, cold as it was here in the wee hours of the morning, -14C or 7F, I don't envy you your hot weather. I worry about a friend who lives in Tasmania near Hobart. - martha
