I'm just wondering what's the hottest it ever gets to in your corner of the world?
It was 43.4 C' yesterday in Melbourne, Australia... 44.0 C' today and should be a cooler 43 C' tomorrow.
For those who think in terms of fahrenheit, today was 111.
This is all perilously close to highest ever January reading of 45.6 C' on 13th January 1939.
I won't tell you about my train trip home... it was a good chance to practice the paramitas.
Gosh, Retro, I feel for you. 44°C - that would kill me. I can hardly handle it when it's over 30 ° C here!
In the summer we often get over 30-35. But we also get, very rarely, almost 40. Or over 40.
Genetically, I am a celtic type, with fair skin and hair,- and I feel comfortable in moderate climate, around 20-25°C.
I can also handle cold weather pretty well.
I was in Florida once and really suffered, except when I was in the ocean, where it was too cold to stay in for good.
So I was caught between a rock and a hard place.
