Thumbs up 45.1˚C here today

Hi all,
well, whilst our fellow US forum members are shivering in extreme weather, we down under are also experiencing a little more extreme weather than normal, 42.1˚C yesterday, 24.1˚C today with thousands of lightening strikes producing many serious bush fires, the same expected tomorrow and to peak at 46˚C Thursday.
We are thinking of you in the cold,I would swap some of our heat for some of you cold any day.

Cheers and keep smiling, it will get better.


Neill

I spent a few months in SA and loved it. Am coming back this year but intend to be out before Christmas. It was great on the peninsular's but when the wind changed and came off the red sand country it got very hot very quickly.

We have had some 40 degree C up here in Queensland lately and it is not pleasant. I still think I prefer that to being buried in snow for months. There is always the A/C when it gets too hot. I expect that it is what you are borne to.

A Coopers or two might help in the hot times.

You do get used to it but it is still uncomfortable.
As far as the coopers is concerned, there are a few bottles in the fridge, but I don't drink, so it is iced water or cordial. Iced coffee also goes down a treat.

Neill, now I'm not saying that 45C is not hot in any way but I did a quick google.
South Australia funnly enough holds the distinction for the hottest recorded temp in Australia.
50.7C or a 123 F recorded in 1960 at Oodnadatta airport.

And that's why I never go to the 'datta.
We only got a mx of 42.2 yesterday. Unusual for us to record a lower temperature than Adelaide, we normally assume we'll be a degree or two hotter than the big smoke.
A few years ago, my brother rolled a fuel tanker coming out of Glendambo.
The boss didn't sack him. He did, however, have to "pay penance" by hauling crude oil out of Jackson for 18 months.
He said the "roads" were really bad, and he'd have to spend his down time under the trailers welding up the spring boxes and stuff that cracked due to the rough treatment.
One day he hung the thermometer out of his fridge under the trailer to see how hot it was when he was working, and he reckons he saw 55 degrees.
Nothing official of course, but man that is hot.

We had low 50s in Egypt waiting to go into Tutankhamen's tomb.
The line kept getting shorter as people kept fainting in front of us.

Smart move, matey.
Lots of Aussie fail to recognise that consuming alcohol in this weather can actually kill you. It's OK if you are safely tucked up in an airconditioned pub for the duration, but guys who drink alcohol while they are actually out inthe sun suffer greatly.

That would be Farmers Union Iced Coffee, I expect?

Hi Mick,
Port Pirie would be getting close to these temps eh?

I can remember as a child, that I used to thoroughly enjoy a raspberry or lemon cordial, but nowadays, it is only rubbish and just as expensive as beer.
Today it only got just over 44˚C which doesn't really feel much different to 38˚C. Tomorrow however will tell the tale as 46˚C is predicted, luckily I am working indoors but that doesn't help much when painting.

Didn't have to goggle it .... It came across the local news on the way home from work. Adelaide of course is due 46C tomorrow. Adelaide's record is 46.1C in 1946, so you might break the record.
Recon that's a reason to try a red cordial...probably will not taste the same as it did when you were 10.
On a side note. I spent a bit of my teenage years in a little country town in the north west NSW. The pool was the focal point of the town for a kid in the summer holidays ( 6 weeks over Xmas for our northern friends)
If the temp hit 100F it was closed... Till 6 pm. Pool normally closed at 9 pm. Those missing hours were added to the 9 pm close. A kid could swim till 3 pm in the morning if it was really hot, turned the kids into night owls .... Without Internet either.
Regards dave
