It's 74 degrees right now and we're supposed to have a partly cloudy day with a high of 82. What a relief - it's typically in the 90s this time of year.

It was pretty muggy last night so much so we ended up using the a/c about 3 this a.m. Supposed to be in the high 90's today,so DH and I are getting out of Dodge and going for a drive to the coast and seeking something a little cooler..Ahhh, lunch out at a fresh fish dive along the beach

After about an hour of this heat, I think I am rare. A few more minutes and I think I would have been medium well. The air is so thick you can cut it with a dull knife!

By now, Uncle Bob, we're "well done." Just too hot to describe. Supposed to be 102 degrees tomorrow. Oh, pew!

I spent 9 hours driving into "town" doing my vittles/supplies shopping today. It was miserable. Can't wait for cooler weather.

Ok, I might just pass out from shock!!! The sun is shinning bright, no clouds in the sky (very rare here lately) and the forecast still looks fabulous for the entire weekend! Currently 65' in my back garden and getting warmer!!

HORAY!

It's cold, well cool really and rainy. We've had some serious rain here in the last few days - much needed and very welcome. Queensland is/has been on heavy duty water restrictions for a few months so this is a huge treat.

It has been over 100 here for 16 days and over 95 for weeks and weeks before that. We are past well done. Water is being rationed everywhere around here. There has been less than 3 inches since May. Not even 1/2 inch this month. They are talking about it being a 100 year draught. I know I've never seen it look like this, the canoe places on the river have all closed due to low water and there are almost no leaves left on the trees. I am worried about it, and I'm worried about fire because I live in the woods. What a year we have had weather wise in 2007.
