When I lived in Florida, one could always tell who the locals were on the sunny beach - those with hats and shirts on.The volleyball court is empty. That is because the locals know full well it is too hot to play. See those people in the background? They're tourists, the only people on the beach at that time of day. I read a passage once about the tourists sunbathing at Coogee beach, ignorant of the pimple-like boils developing on their faces as the sun aggressively beats down on them. It's true. And over this Australia Day weekend, we're looking at plus 42 degree temperatures. That's how the weather is at my place.
And 140km up the road in Newcastle, we are expecting much the same as Sydney. Except out west where I live, it will be 10º hotter than on the coast. I bought myself a new sunhat this past week, I didnt have one, never felt the need. I do now.That's how the weather is at my place.
I heard there was a 49 degree day in parts of W.A. around Christmas time till boxing day, did it actually get to that?
OK, I won't complain about our -1 F at the moment!It's bit chilly right now, around -22 F. Will be this cold the whole weekend, with possibly -31 F for Monday. Not much windy, thank goodness.
