It’s a scorcher!

Melbourne is set for its hottest ever December temperature … our phone app shows 43 degrees in Armadale (suburb of Melbourne)

The newspapers say that if the temperature reaches 44 degrees, as expected, it will break a 143 year old December record! (Fortunately it’s all change tomorrow…)

Just walked out to the cafe for a cappuccino. Exiting the air conditioned building we hit a wall of heat. It only takes a minute to walk there… but that was long enough!

It’s overcast at the moment and Val was reading that they can have lightening in these conditions and that’s often when fires start…
