  1. It does look like it will be a stinker on Christmas day for you. I would like to have your humidity though, ours is between 70-80% which makes it feel a lot hotter than the temp actually is. I come from a place with a very dry heat(like you) & find that a lot more bearable than heat WITH humidity. How is your son going has he made a complete recovery??

  2. I don't believe it. Ours is supposed to be 30 and I don't believe that either.

  3. It is meant to be 27 degrees here which would be about right,And means my gilrs can actually wear summery dresses!!!

  4. Oh you poor things - that's just too hot! I hope the hot weather doesn't come our way for Christmas Day!

    Have a good one (inside I would think!),

  5. Whew! I thought we were in the HOT SEAT at 72F on Christmas day. Arizona stays warm around the holidays but not THAT warm. That's more like our JUNE or JULY weather. I just learned something new today.

  6. Ours is predicted to be about 26 and showers(again). We were down to 6 degrees last night so who knows.

  8. It was 30.3 the other day and we've had 97% humidity! I actually melted, it wasn't pretty!

  9. I feel for you. As am ex south australian I know all about that hot heat (and flies) I do hope the forecasters are wrong. We are enjoying a very cool start to the day and unlikely to reach the 29C forecast.
