Better today

The apartment did eventually cool down more today without the air con on. I feel for those in the north of Victoria who are still experienced 40 degrees today, and those in Sydney who experienced 43 degrees and those in the western suburbs, 45 degrees, 113F.

  1. We reached 40 today. Bleah.
    And I too feel for those who exceeded that already too hot number.

  2. That's very hot for Melbourne! Even in Perth we had a maximum of 29, and a bit windy.
    Staying indoors is the best option for you Andrew. Keep cool.

    1. Sami, at its worst, we have had, I think, three days of over 40. Horrible. But we always eventually get the southerly buster, stronger than your Fremantle Doctor.

  3. My goodness! 113 degrees is brutally hot Andrew! When I woke up this morning it was 6 degrees, and I was happy. You already know that despite being born in August, I despise the hot weather. Hugs...RO

    1. Merle, that is one way to deal with it. Move very slowly.

    1. Margaret, sometimes our temps are very similar. That day wasn't one of them.

  10. Dry heat is far preferable to humidity, but lower temperatures are best of all. I'm looking forward to June.

  11. That's too hot Andrew. I sag in such heat, or try to be submerged in water. We are having a very mild winter, and already there is worry about the snow levels in the mountains, as it is what we all live off in the spring and summer.

    1. Strayer, I can imagine the concern if there is not going to be a lot to melt. Maybe rainfall will make up some of the shortfall.
