It’s damn hot!

Welcome to Summer! It’s no secret that where we live gets hot.  I’m talking regularly and consistently hot. As in 40+ degree days (that’s usually between 100-112F), all strung together in succession.

As a Queenslander, I love the heat.  I grew up in Central Queensland where the temperatures were similar but they were coupled with 90% humidity (or as my hubby prefers to call it, stupidity!).  So for me, this dry heat is actually bearable in comparison, and most of the time I don’t feel it as acutely as some of my southern born counterparts.

But today, even I noticed how hot it was.  We’ve had a hot start to the week this week and after a couple of days in the high 30’s and low 40’s today was a top of 44C (111.5F).  It was hot.

I jumped into the car to pick up the girls and could barely touch the steering wheel.  I cranked up the air con and then saw my dashboard thermometer which was actually reading 49C when I got in the car!

When I got home, I checked the temp outside.  At 6pm, it was still just under 44C!


I’m feeling as though it’s going to be a ripping hot summer this year!

Is it hot where you are at the moment?  Do you like the heat, or do you prefer the cold?
