It's now what we call winter here !
Day time max 31 deg C and evenings min 24 deg C on Jan 2nd.
Yesterday it was 32 C/ 25 C ! It's an unusually hot winter.
The average temperatures should be 28 C / 21 C for this part of the year.
Wonder what summer ( May) will be like this year . Maybe 50 C / 36 C !!

All air-cons will be turned on and the power grid will fail mid day and at night !
It's like sitting in a furnace !

Extract from a news link.....

Residents in the outback town of Oodnadatta are preparing for their seventh consecutive day above 45 degrees Celsius.
The temperature at the town in South Australia's far north is forecast to reach 47C today after reaching 46C on Saturday and 47C on Sunday and Monday.
It will be the 10th day in a row above 40C.
The last time the town experienced a maximum below 35C was December 10.
The Bureau of Meteorology says the town has already set a new local record, eclipsing two previous runs of five days in a row above 45C.
Lynnie Plate from Oodnadatta's Pink Roadhouse says residents are struggling to stay cool.
"The bitumen is melting, our freezer is not coping. I had to throw out half a dozen cartons of ice cream yesterday," she said.
"Nothing is coping really. The petrol pumps won't pump unleaded after midday. They vaporise so we've got to wait for a cool change if there is such a thing.

2012 has been the hottest year on record ever for much of the US.

Since south Florida is a major tourist location, the true temperature is seldom reported on TV, and my location is 15 miles from the ocean and less than a mile from the Everglades (swamp). It can be 10 degrees hotter here than the beach temperature conservatively reported on TV.

well it's mid January here and it should be cold. Instead, it's already April, and raining. Weird.

It's mid Jan (well, not quite) and it's -26 c, with a wind chill of -33 c. Which is why tube amps are a joy!

I understand that it's record cold in California?

Here in Chicago, I was walking around yesterday afternoon in a t-shirt.

We have now been told that we have had about 30% less rainfall than usual. So we will have water shortage mid summer . Great for the water tanker business ( mostly owned by politicians !) . AND the sea is just next door !
It will be a HOT , dry and expensive summer...........limited electric power too !
A pre-training school for HELL !
