    Scorching Summer Heat

    The temperature just hit 45 degrees centigrade here in little old Adelaide S.A. Hope this warms you up if you are having snow. We have all our fingers and toes crossed that there will not be any bushfires this next week as we go through a week of scorching heat.

    Maybe if I just close my eyes and think a while,the toes will warm up! Stay safe; it doesn't sound like much fun.

    Pretty hot here in Canberra too, and even hotter tomorrow, (around 39 degrees C, not as bad as 45 though) I hope there will be no bushfires either, stay cool and stay safe
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Woody, you've probably heard about the bushfire in Tasmania. Some 60 buildings have been destroyed. We had one fire here in S.A. but no casualties so far. A little respite tomorrow only 32 degrees here but the rest of the week is set to be a heat wave with up to 40 degrees again by Thursday.

    Yes, please send us some of the warm weather here. My aunt and uncle live in Springwood and she said it is too hot for her now there.

    Yes, remember Australia uses Centigrade, the U.S. uses Fahrenheit. 45F is chilly, 45C is darned hot. The living in fear of the brush fires is nerve wracking, and they can be started for such stupid and careless reasons. Hope you stay safe and comfortable!

    We have been quite hot here in Culburra Beach, and this morning there is a smell of smoke and it is hazy outside, praying no major fires.

    Hard to think of warm places when I am sitting here wraped up on a balnket on the PC. I hope you do not get any fires, they seem the most scary of all natural desasters and most of them are from carelessness of humans I am sure. Be safe. Take care.

    Fires are dreadful, and they are not always caused by carelessness. Some bush fires are deliberately lit and I for the life of me don't understand the thrill firebugs get by lighting life threatening fires.

    Yep we in WA have just had ten days with temps over 39C and up to 45 (113F). The nights are worse when it does not cool down 25C (77F). We live in the hills of Perth and know the fires or threats of fires are the worse and my thoughts are with you all.

    agree with alwayslearning .... I have to remember body temp is around 37 degrees C. so 45 degrees C is over 100 degrees F. That is way too warm for anybody. The heat the US suffered last summer seems to have moved to southern hemisphere. Weather is abnormal everywhere!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I just spent the last week in Missouri (9* to 25* Fahrenheit - wind chill 0* to 15*). I returned to my previously cold winter (41* to 57* Fahrenheit) near San Francisco and realized it's really summer here.

    My thoughts are with you. We lived in SA twice. DH was in the Airforce. I remember writing to my folks back here in QLD that I knew what the end of the Earth would look like, 40 odd degrees, a howling wind and red sand straight off the desert. We were in Gawler in 2004 when it was 45 degrees (in a caravan). We were traveling back from WA.

    It was heart breaking to see a town wiped out. I remember the Adelaide fires of '83. We lived at Elizabeth then. I also remember the terrible fires in Tassie in '67. A fire ball is something I have never had to face personally and hope I never do. I can remember in '83 seeing one on TV. It ran up a hill, dance along the ridge the ran back down to a valley. One of the most frightening things I've ever seen.
