I would agree but trying to sleep in with those creatures runnning around the apartment is impossible, so they're completely worn out now and I can sleep.

Ah yes, I have one like a possum, and unfortunately in the last 5 minutes her fellow bestie possum has blown in for the night so I won't even get a decent night time sleep now!

It was 43 in Perth today. 10pm and it's still 30. No wonder a person wants to move to the UK.

Woke up very early to one enormous bang of thunder, doors slamming from the wind and loads of rain

I am happy now..... sing along

No seriously this cooler weather, its great, one thing though, even being wet and grey the UV will still peak at 13 !!

In all our time in Brisbane/sunshine coast I can only recall one day of 40 something and it was 46

Superb timing too, we had just flown in from the snow covered Utah.

I nearly dropped dead at the airport.

I never want to experience it again, however in melb we will, not unusual to have spells of those temps for a few days running too.

I normally don't might high heat but yesterday was stupid hot (it hit 44.4c in Perth, 41.5c here)

I had loads to do around the house and garden but my son and I ended up sitting in the pool all day

Think yourself lucky. NB had no aircon or pool yesterday and another FB friend had a power pole being changed so had no power all day (and no pool). 35/6 is my limit I think and we've only had about 2 of those in 9 years.

I think the low humidity here helps with the heat - think I prefer high 30's with no humidity to high 20's with high humidity.

Nice sunny day, with about 35 so far, although was still 30 when I got in from work at 1am this morning

I'm the opposite, hate dry heat, I feel as though I'm going to shrivel up and die, give me 'some' humidity and I can cope with higher temps. Don't think we've ever had 30 at night!
