Hot, hot, hot!

This is what the heat feels like atm!!


Not looking good for Christmas this year...



It reached 46C (114.8F) yesterday, 
it was supposed to be 42C (107.6F)...

By 9.30am today it was 40C (104F), 
Its going to be a couple of long days...

They have forecast 44C for tomorrow, but it is looking like the temperature may rise as high as 
47 - 48C (116.8 -118F)
I hope not!!

We just have to stay home and take care of the animals and garden in these temps!

Stay safe, cool or warm, depending on where you are J

I am not getting much time to blog at the moment during this Christmas season.  
Christmas is at our place again this year so we are having our normal cleanup and preparations. I have family arriving so time will be filled with enjoying our special time together J

We are in the middle of a heat wave at the moment with high temperatures all week.

Monday 39C (102.2F)
Tuesday 39C 
Wednesday 42C (107.6)
Thursday 43C (109.4F)
Friday 44C (111.2F)
Saturday 34C (93.2F)

Hopefully it is cooler for Christmas day, nothing worse than a scorching hot Christmas! It is hard to get things done in this heat, and hopefully the garden can survive J
