    As soon as I can find the right box, I'll send you some Artic air. Would you like a snowman or two to go with it?
    I wonder if its better than Antartica air.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Weatherman predicting 19 for our low tonight. Our high today was in the high 30's. Last Friday our high was 69. You gotta love Oklahoma weather - never know whether to wear shorts or jeans.....

    I know exactly how you feel as a fellow West Aussie. We have still not succumbed to the temptation of aircon. We get by with ceiling fans and fortunately a swimming pool.....Last night was a killer.....just before turning in around midnight...hopped in the pool with the dogs even my little Topo dog paddled on the side. Every summer for the last four years my DH has raised the subject of moving "down south". Might just happen if this humidity keeps up.......I can cope with the dry....but humidity, forget it.

    we heard the aussies are having a horribly hot spell. hope the fires are not where you are.being here in kansas i have found out how spoiled i was about the weather. i was raised in san diego california. the temp was always nice except a few weeks of the santa ana winds that came from the dessert but even then it wasn't to bad cause we just went to the bay or beach which was just a couple of blocks away.and the southern california winters are great. kansas is either real hot and humid like you have now or to cold, as in 29 degrees right now. i'm always "CALIFORNIA DREAMING" these days. Hope the hot stuff passes soon for you. you'd be more than welcome to some of the cold from here if i could.

    Yep...all over the country we are having these intolerable heatwaves....the fires are so far mainly on the east coast and down in Tasmania. Absolutely tragic. Every summer we live in fear of bushfires (we are in the hills surrounded by forest and bushland). Hopefully we will be spared, but who knows. We have a plan of action....ours involves packing the vehicles and leaving. We are reasonably organised and have harnesses and pet carriers for all our pets. As much as I would like to try and save our home, our block is too big and the terrain too difficult to even have a chance of saving it....yet alone surviving. Anyway....it's ice-cubes, swimming and ceiling fans....I just can't face the ironing pile today

    Thirty degrees F here. Expected windchill 16 tonight. It is 11:30pm here now. Snow with sleet earlier this afternoon.
    We have a little dusting of snow, but mostly is ice.
    Will gladly split the deference with you.LOL
    A hope you all get some relief SOON. Stay cool and away from the fires. You all will be in my prayers!...

    well it is now 45c the aircons are working full out and keeping us cool. but I love the outdoors and my garden is cooking
    and i melt in this weather. some of the fires are under control due to cooler weather in some parts of Australia but they are expecting the temp to go up again. what annoys me most is most of them a deliberatly lit I wonder how they would feel in they lost their house or a loved one. we are hoping for a cool change in a day or so, it was still over 30c when we went to bed last night @11.30 enjoy your cooler weather,

    We warmed up to about 12 F today. Wish we could send a little your way and you could return the favor. Try to keep cool! I'm thinking of you and it's already warmed me a little.

    6.45 pm

    and it is still 37c looks like the aircon will be on all night again unless we get a cool breeze. weather lady said last night was our hottest night in history, but so many refuse to accept global warming.

    Oh, dear, I feel for you. I don't care what anyone says about humidity, 100+ degrees fries my brain! But here in Florida, 55% humidity is considered moderate, and pretty darn comfortable. Come summer it will be in the 90% with temps in the 90's. I'm with Tink's mom... I'll take the temperate middle, please!

    We have brushfires here, too, but not as devastating as yours. On our flat terrain, they don't get as large, and there is nothing more frightening than flames up a mountain. A friend of mine lost her home four years ago to one. It is a life-changing event, and I pray you & yours are spared, and this cyclone puts a few of them out.

    You can always come visit me, it's winter here and the weather has been delightful.

    I'm outside of Phoenix, AZ, and the past week it's been down into the low 20's (F) at night! It's been colder here than at home in NH! One of my hubby's friends who lives in Fairbanks, AK, said it was 22* F this morning, it was 28* here! There is something *VERY* wrong with that!

    Hello from the frozen tundra! Actually it is about 10 degrees F, but the sun is shining. That makes it look a lot warmer. Don't even have much snow left or I would throw you a snowball. Hang in there!

    I'll take the hot weather over the cold anytime. It's freezing rain here today. Our guild meeting was cut short as cars were freezing over.
    Got fabric?

    Woke up to ice on my trees this morning. Can't get my sewing building warm. DH is going to have to underpin it to keep the air out. Going to go to Lowes Or Walmart tomorrow & get a bigger heater. It is cold, cold, cold! Hopefully will be warmer tomorrow.
    Live everyday so that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says oh crap she's up.
