We got in the car and turned on the am radio and realised the real effect of the extreme weather. There were massive fires burning out of control across most of the state yesterday, whole towns have been wiped out. There are deaths and loss of homes and farms it has been terrible. Hopefully the cool weather will help and the rest of the fires can be brought under control. It has been an absolute disaster.

It so the hottest day ever recorded in my town today and its amazing. The wind is whipping down from the north pushing the temperature higher and higher, it topped 45.3 C which is 114 F and may go higher still. The steps burn through the rubber soles of my shoes, the front lawn has thrown its hands in the air, curled up and died. Trees drop their leaves as though Autumn has begun but really they have been cooked. It’s quite exhilarating, almost apocalyptic. So now it’s off to the beach for a swim before a cool change comes sweeping through this evening.
