Australia is a hot country, we know that. But even by Australian standards, right now, this place is hot, very hot.
Australia is having a heatwave.
Everybody seems to be getting a turn, it was only two weeks ago I wrote my post What’s Wrong With Brisbane? If you read that one you will have seen that temperatures here soared to, officially, 43°C. Where I live my thermometer suggested it may well have been 46°C.
Very, very, very hot.
This heat is spreading, here’s a news report from Adelaide…
Whoever heard of Oodnadatta? Not me, but apparently it’s in outback South Australia. It’s hot there at the moment. Here’s some more Australian heatwave news from Oodnadatta and elsewhere around the country…
Other Australian cities are suffering from this heatwave as well, but I’ll tell you more about that on Monday. Right now, I’ve got to find my hat and sunnies.
