Heat wave and fires in South Australia

Postby AndrewT » Wed Jan 15, 2014 5:13 pm

Today we are experiencing a top of 114F after three days of above 104F temperatures.
Large number of small bushfires as well. Hopefully its going to cool down by Saturday. :twisted:

Sorry to hear of the fires my friend but I can take all the 100+ temps you can dish out. Not just cause its cold now but I thrive on ridiculous heat that drives most folks indoors.

Yesterday evening we took my friends boat out to the gulf of St Vincent
It was dead calm and still 110F at 6.00 pm

Andrew

I think you have defined perfection! Amazing. Perfect water and temp.

If I could I would be on the next flight with my boat in my suitcase.........OK a really big suitcase.

Ahhhhhhhh. It feels good just looking at it.

Send some of that heat to Northeastern USA. They are getting hammered again with snow and ice.

I'd love to :D Our weather here has been breaking temperatures record highs for last few months,we got up to 115F and we had a week of over 104F.
Touch wood our air conditioning in house works very well, it is an evaporative one , works well with low humidity that we have here in SA, and doesn't use to much power.
We pay $0.30 per kilowatt hour here in SA, dearest in all of Australia, one thing that helps we have a 3.5KW solar generator on our roof, which off sets any bills for 9 months of the year.
