    started a topic I Told you it was HOT!!!

    I Told you it was HOT!!!

    I have mentioned that we (IN Adelaide South Australia) are going through the worst and longest heat wave in recorded history! and this in the middle of a drought that just keeps going and going... really bad.. crops being lost and the River Murray is drying up ... but this last 2 weeks of 35 to 40 degrees has been horrific... I hate the heat anythime but this is relentless.
    and look at this!! proof how hot is here

    Has the weather improved any yet? I'm going to a wedding in Adelaide on 17 May so I hope the day is nice, but please not too hot! I can't stand the heat! I'll be like that ice cream van in the picture up top there!
    Wish I could send you some rain, Moonbeam. It's chucking it down here today!

    OHyeah! It's cooled of alright...we are in Autumn (Fall)here and first we have a massive record breaking heat wave then it changes from one extreme to the other.. it's cold now like winter... both extremes totally unseasonal?
    But at least it is raining a bit - it was so nice to get a bit of rain seeing we are in the middle of a drought (2years) I dont mind the cold and the rain is so very welcome.

    Oh Crumbs!! we were only at Kadina 3 weeks ago. stayed for the weekend with Lonnie & Jess our friends and visited the lovely beach there - it's a small world isn't it! we live in the northern suburbs of Adealide so not too far away - I think it took us about 1.5 hrs to drive there.

    it sure has been awful.... I have just been comparing on the net the daily temperatures for Adelaide and Mt Gambier - I would love to move there and really would consider moving to a cooler place because I think with global warming the extremes in temperature are going to get worse each year. Humans have stuffed up the planet!
    I would have though it would have been cooler on the Yorke Peninsula surrounded by ocean. Did you at least get cool nights? the nights in Adelaide minimum stayed around mid 20's some nights it never went below 26.
    We used to live in Edithburgh on the peninsula and have lots of friends in Yorketown and a few other towns over there.
    Sorry to hear you lost crops - it must be pretty hard going for you guys there.. and along the Murray river with the water crisis.
    na we had low to mid 20's temps overnight, we ended up sleeping in the loungeroom for 2 weeks..we are in Kadina,so like 25mins from the beach..its nice today though..

    I would have been glad to ship you some this year, and we didn't get as much as others did. We had a lot more than normal though! I sure feel for you. I hate the heat, I hibernate in the air conditioning when it is hot.
