Nah, Grace - there are more of us!

I was one of the melting, though not until I left work at 11PM - when you think the air con's not so strong and then step out into a smothering blanket of night time heat it really brings home how unpleasant it would have been all day in that. One of my favourite things is discovering how much happier I am as a nurse than I'd be being someone else - like a firefighter. Even my skin feels too hot...

CONGRATULATIONS sydneymum14! Wishing you every success.

Talaxandra ... makes you appreciate what their [ fireies] job is like somewhat, doesn't it? I swear I could've fried an egg on the back patio it was so hot!

Thankfully today we've received a respite!

Grace, too right - even watching the train services people hosing down the tracks, clad in reflective vests, made me feel hotter! I just cannot imagine being not just in this heat but near a fire, wearing full protective gear. They seriously rock and I hope this summer is nothing like last year.

And yes - I write this basking in the cool breeze and listening to light rain.

Glad you're receiving some rain there too. We did today and the temps have cooled .... which makes this ..... http://au.news.yahoo.com/a/-/mp/6670460/four-dead-in-smash-near-barossa/ ......... all the more tragic. I can't understand why they were evacuating given temps had dropped and we had rain. This is not far from home here. We travel to the valley on that road all the time. Heartbreaking. We did have code red for the past several days, but I didn't think we had it today.

I'm with you guys- it's a stinker alright! I spend the day getting in & out of a hot car, and when I get home it's straight into the paddling pool!
