65. Hot Aussies

It's official folks, Adelaide in the state of South Australia has endured its longest heat wave on record.

Generally a heat wave is considered to be the number of days with the temperature reaching or exceeding 100 ?F or 37.8 ?C.

Well, we just had 15 days over 35 ?C and believe me that was hot enough. I had to drive 22 Kilometres each day in a car with no air conditioning. I had a wet towel around my neck to survive. Yesterday I broke out into heat rash, but it has subsided with today's cooler weather.

What was the world's longest heat wave?

The record for the world's longest heat wave goes to Marble Bar in Western Australia. From October 31, 1923 to April 07, 1924 the temperature broke the 100 ?F mark setting the heat wave record at a scorching 160 days.

Where is the hottest place on Earth? Temperature records from weather stations give that distinction to El Azizia, Libya, which hit a sweltering 57.8 degrees Celsius (136 F) on September 13, 1922, but there have likely been hotter locations beyond the scattered network of weather stations. (such as my bedroom in 1963 -1971.)

Now if any of you kewl dudes want to come down here and help cool me down, please understand if I don't want to cuddle.

:shock:

Is the air in your home working again? I hope so. If you want, I can mail you some snow. It can keep you pretty cool.I think that I just need to say for everyone here that if we went down to visit you, you would not cool off any.

I am certain if you "went down to visit" we would all get very hot indeed.Why not send me a snowman? That would be cool.Nope the air is stuffed. I pulled the water cooler out of the shed and got that going so it is better than nothing.Oh well it will soon be winter here, which will give the heater a chance to break down. :smile:

I'm not sure why, but I'm getting visions of men coming to visit you in your bedroom, and it being too damn hot, so while you do your cuddly-wuddly on the bed, writhing in a tangle of sheets and shorts, you b/f is standing like a native boy in 1940 films, pulling on a cord which controls ceiling drapes which fan you and keep you the body temperatues from reaching the boiling point.Of course, the b/f is unclothed in observance of the heat of the day and the heat of the bed, adding to the passion of the event.Is this how you see it, too?C

Actually the b/f prefers to sit cross-legged on the wardrobe whilst uttering appropriate curses to all. (He's very possessive.) :smile:
