46 degrees

i kid you not - the northcote rsl and the car both said it was 46 at 4.30 as we went to the northcote pool and still 46 when we came home more than 2 hours later.......

the trip to the pool was prompted by the power going off at 3.30 - within 15 minutes the house felt like a sauna. the pool was lovely although if you unwisely lifted your head over the parapet of the pool wall you were assaulted by a blast of hot northerly that scoured your face......

before we left home i did a quick check of chook health and was not surprised to see Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego strolling about.
the trees are all wilting
and even the tallest weed is looking poorly

Good grief! I can't begin to imagine what that feels like. I hope it doesn't go on too long for you all and that the chooks survive.
