Urrrrrr ...  
It is 41.5 degrees C, which is over 100 in the old money. If you hear nothing further from me, it is because I have melted. I make note that it is not yet summer.

I water skied in Lake Havesu (sp) Arizona.
It was over 100 degrees, but the heat was
so dry, it did not bother me.
I can't imagine what you must be going
through with the temperature so high.
Do you pace yourself and try not to
over exert in the heat?
(I refuse to let you melt)

I am sitting inside with the blinds drawn watching a Jane Austen biography. Mr Brammers bought me two bags of ice yesterday, for he truly loves me. I believe they may be crunched through merrily before the day is out!

We're used to ghastly weather in these parts, and have the house locked up against the worst of it (we will open it up at night to take advantage of the cool change). But it does usually have the decency to wait til actual summer!

I have ice, and a bath, which can be filled with ice should worst come to the worst ...

It's about 30 degrees here, which isn't so bad given that it was about 38 degrees on Friday. I'm envious of Melbourne's 18 degrees though. Although not to envious of their possible flash flooding.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 22nd, 2009 04:32 am (UTC)
WHAT IS IT WITH THE FLOODING? Between the several floodwarnings in Oz and the deluge in the UK, it's simply mad!

Glad your temps have come down a little, they promise me a cool change tonight, which I look forward to eagerly.

can you go somewhere that has a/c?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 22nd, 2009 04:33 am (UTC)
The problem comes about when one has to leave it ... it is not actually so bad inside, probably about 33, and I have shows on my hard drive to catch up with. Just finished Jane Austen, now onto Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall ;-)

D: What is your weather? I DON'T EVEN

blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 22nd, 2009 04:34 am (UTC)
It's absolutely insane.

People think I am rabid about climate change because I am a lefty ratbag. Au contraire, I am a moderate who is presented with overwhelming evidence of climate change on a daily basis. And I don't like it!

Oh HURRAH! Fingers crossed it will arrive here tomorrow.
oldenuf2nboldenuf2nb on November 22nd, 2009 04:44 am (UTC)
35 degrees here (old money) with snow rolling in before morning.

...I think I'll take my weather, actually. Shall I send you some?
blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 22nd, 2009 04:46 am (UTC)
Yes please! And I would always take your weather over mine, cold is so much easier to escape from if you have a modicum of shelter and clothing.

I think I might put down the laptop and change the buttons on one of my shirts until the cold front arrives. Handsewing is cooler, and the shirt is linen, which I may need tomorrow if the weather does not change.

I'm not sure if it's dry or humid there, but in Florida when I lived there it would not only be hot but wet and muggy too. Right now it is 50 (old money) here in Virginia. I'm enjoying the coolish air and feel for anyone who has to go through any type of heat higher than room temperature. *hugs* Hope it gets cooler for you soon.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 22nd, 2009 04:51 am (UTC)
Very humid inside, slightly less so outside as a hot wind has just blown in, however, it's eight degrees hotter than inside and gritty, so I am staying in!

I have some notes for your paper, but am too knackered to make sense at the moment, so I will deal with them later tonight!

Hey darling! Sydney at that temp is not a liveable city. Bah! For once I am not going to one-up your hot - we finally got a cold change and a wonderfully stalled weather front, and a missing month's worth of rain in around 16 hours (along with floods etc). It's been lovely. I actually went and walked in it at around 8pm last night with C and C - rumours that I was seen dancing in puddles and singing 'Singing in the Rain' are not greatly exaggerated.

Wish I could send it your way, but it appears to be heading for NZ instead. I will endeavour to will it northwards.

I think the quickest source of relief close to you would be to sneak down to the fishmarkets and crawl into their cold rooms (don't mind the smell).

How are the fires going? BoM said the amount of energy involved in our weather this last month (from ridic hot to ridic wet and cold) is both exceptional and ridiculously high. Also, NOT NORMAL.

*concentrates fiercely on sending weather to you*
blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 22nd, 2009 05:38 am (UTC)
According to the SMH they've jumped containment lines and are threatening rural properties. The wind has been heavy, gusting, and multi-directional, which spells horrible for the firefighters. The city is so far unaffected by direct fire, but there is quite a haze developing out there, which probably is also a bit to do with the normal smog not being pushed out of the city's bowl.

The streets are astonishingly empty for this time of a weekend, I think everyone has given up and gone home to sit in a cold bath. The Mon cat is sitting in the washbasin as I type ;-)

The BOM assures me tomorrow will be 22, I am putting my faith in them!

Hopefully your summer won't be like my summer, where we had almost 60 consecutive days of 100+ degrees heat. We're used to the hot Texas summers, but that was ridiculous.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 22nd, 2009 11:55 am (UTC)
That's just insane. Do you at least live in or near a desert?

Sydney was all rich grass plains and temperate rainforest, once. Now it's mostly concrete and tarmac, and we wonder where the rain went ...

I have to say that the weather is being horridly rude! You and Mr Brammers can always hop on a train and come visit the air conditioned Chez shushu if you need a break :) Its cooler here in Canberra today - so there is a cool change coming your way.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 22nd, 2009 11:57 am (UTC)
Thanks, dear! We are talking about popping down over the Christmas break, when I get back, so you and I can have a big photo binge.

Bring on that change!

Like Abs said, we have had so much rain here the last 24 hours I can almost forgive the 40+ days. Almost. Hasn't gone over 17 here today. Rain even woke me from a deep sleep last night it was that heavy.

Actually the dust storms ahead of the cool change yesterday were eerily reminiscent of the bushfires. Not in smell of course - but then after a few days of being blanketed in thick smoke no one smelled smoke anyway - but in colour and lack of visibility. Very eerie. Made me want to run and check the CFA websites an make sure there were no fires around us.

Stay cool, hon.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 22nd, 2009 12:21 pm (UTC)
We are having alleged rain this month. 'With late showers' means 12 second of heavy splatter, followed by nothing. I hate the weather!!!

I hope things look up for you, too. I;m going to finish replying to comments and then go out and see if that change is anywhere to be found.
prone to mischieftreacle_tartlet on November 22nd, 2009 07:01 am (UTC)
Everything still abysmally soggy down here, but quite warm too (yes, yes, warm for a Tasmanian spring). Fruit flies and mosquitoes breeding in unholy numbers, house rapidly becoming submerged in rampant greenery, that sort of thing.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 22nd, 2009 12:22 pm (UTC)
Tassie warm is horrible: it's your UV that makes you feel every jot of it. I am sure that the verdant theme will be delightful at some point, but filled with mozzies and fruit flies, it sounds like Brisbane ...
Asta: pic summerastarael02 on November 22nd, 2009 07:52 am (UTC)
:O Oh my GOD.

And some people still say climate change isn't real?!??
Also, that sounds worryingly like the kind of tenmperature that could kill you if you went out in it. Although I know nothing about that sort of temperature.
*sends you rain clouds from Sheffield*

I hope you're ok :-S
blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 22nd, 2009 01:14 pm (UTC)
I hate those people!

It's not a good temp to try and do anything in. Luckily, people act sensibly, the village was pretty much deserted today, aside from people going to the bottle-shop for ice or deli for sorbet ...

*Thanks you for your lovely rain clouds*
*Encourages them to actually rain*
rubyemerald_1 on November 22nd, 2009 10:03 am (UTC)
I think I should fly north for the summer. It's 9pm and I'm dripping. The study with the 'puter has no aircon, and though I feel a flutter of breeze outside, in here it's still and thick and wet. How's your ice holding up?
Yippee! 21 degrees tomorrow.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on November 22nd, 2009 01:57 pm (UTC)
Halfway through the first bag of ice, and I've not even resorted to sticking it in a bag and slapping it on my head yet ;-)

THE CHANGE HAS ARRIVED! I am going to stay up for a bit to cool the house down before I lock it up for the night. And YES! COOL! If you fly north, I'll see you there ;-)
