  6. Same conditions just across the border. Went for an early ride to the Gramps before retreating back home by 9.40 to wait it out under the aircon. Thank god for good supply of frosties in the fridge, fingers crossed the power will stay on!

  8. Adelaide's a stinking hot hole in summer: our last summer there was 1959 and we had ten days straight over 100F and the last day before the heatwave broke was 110.5F......

  9. Fairly frigging nuclear isn't it...

    My solution much like some above:

    Inside = aircon+beer
    Outside = pool+beer

    Beer this weekend is White Rabbit Dark Ale :hungry:

  10. 43C out at TABCorp Park, checking the Toy Run route for tomorrow. Walking into the aircon bar was blissful!

    Best decision was waking at 0130 to a northerly wind blasting 28C into the bedroom, closing up the house and cranking on the aircon. Very nice to come home to...... :D

  12. Summers are definitely cooler since moving north. Adelaide has killer heatwaves.

    Locals here always say "it must have been really cold down there".

    Ha! Central West NSW has been fcuking freezing in winter so far.

  14. It was nasty out there today in Melbourne this morning too. Coming down the freeway back home in that wind got a little interesting, but I don't mind riding in the wind. Although there's not many bikes out there today, let me tell you. It's vicious windy and air con and drinks seem like a very logical thing to do. Still.....I did have some fun this morning battling the conditions.

  17. It may have been but to be honest, I had my head down and didn't notice HeliHeli. Still too busy sticking my tongue out in newbie concentration especially in this wind! :wideyed:

    Speaking of weather - take care of your animals people.
    My two dogs are in AC comfort.

    Went for a quick walk to the corner store - found an old Labrador wandering around. Not in a good way.
    Bloody useless council - message bank
    RSPCA - put through to same message bank
    Emergency VET - same message bank.

    Last resort was Police - undetermined wait.
    Meanwhile I'm on a random doorstep with a poor old dog really struggling.

    Long story short - secured the dog, did a door knock, found its home.
    Yeah, the last 1.5 hours have been not so fun.
    At least poor old mate is home.
    Time for a Beer.
