Into the Kitchen




Has been a bit warm, of late, but haven't melted yet.

Ah, had intended to be a bit subtle, but for those who miss it .. the digital Temp reads 50.8C .. and fer those yankees who depend on "shock horror" numbers .. that's 123.44 degree Fahrenheit in your part of the world.

My goodness, didn't even need the temperature conversion to know that's HOT. Does it usually get that hot in summertime where you live? I ask because Australia is a place they say will be hit hard by global warming.

Gawd. That's Beer O'clock in anyone's language!
So, Mr. Wombat in a big hat, are you missing that cool, breezy ketch, yet?

Anne, that's not climate change, that's the Australian summer in a heatwave. Killed a lot of early European settlers it did (not to mention more than a few people last week).

John L said...

It's been over 50 in Kapunda too.

Caroline said...

that was at quarter to two. What was it at four?

and while I'm here, I can understand the Wi in WiFi but what's the Fi for other than a prelude to fum? It wouldn't be fidelity? Now would it? No. I didn't think so.

Ah, Caroline - fidelity is an uncommon concept .. heh.

Anne - this part of Oz always has hot summers .. not normally a problem, but this 2 week stretch of over 45C is - or has been rare. Sans "air-conditioning" Am learning a new set of coping techniques.

Ah, Hip, am soon decamping fer a cooler spot, hopefully with sea breezes.

Lemmi .. yer .. heh, the morgue is full .. sheesh, too many oldies in Adelaide dropping orf the tree, now have to shove 'em in a refrigerated container .. heh heh - oops, better not laff too soon, heh.

MM, John L, I always add about 5C to the "official" forecast, but only work off my little digital clock. Funnily enough, I cheated a bit with the pic. Had intended to see if I could actually fry an egg so left fryingpan and clock out in the sun for an hour .. but nup, not hot enough to fry an egg .. bugga, would have made an interesting video.

Hey Davo, we could use a little of that heat. As I type, my thermometer is reading 11.5 degrees Fahrenheit...headed for about 2degrees F tonight. and we have had a bruising cold winter and it aint over yet. My 3 year firewood supply, or so I thought it, is half gone in half a season. Storms piled on snow faster than it could melt since around christmas. Have not seen bare dirt for over a month.

I'd gladly send you some snow, I can barely see over the top of the piles of it here.

OMG...this is nothing to joke about!

You OK Davo?

GreenSmile said...

I am sure you have more important things to do than reassure your many fans...but if you get near a computer that is working, just a word, please. There has been the most awful news lately.

I don't know a dang thing about Australian geography, but I hope you're not in the fire area. Take care.

Am about 800 miles from the Victorian fires Threescore, we had a cool change late Saturday, down to mid to high 20's - but still very dry. South Australia could explode at any time
