We are having some nice summer weather here, mid 20's with the odd day reaching 30 C. We are still getting quite a lot of rain. I am having to mow the lawn twice week.
The weather people are telling us some of that heat might drift across the ditch in the next week or so. I think we could manage without that.

Still customers expect you to produce even in this heat
Time for an iced tea , no beer (diabetes out of control)

Been putting a new stainless shaft in a large screw pump for three days working under a box tree for shade. Was 47 yesterday. Christ knows how hot it was at my lathe. Been using a 20 lt bucket full of water to keep my tools in ,otherwise you cant pick them up.

At least my bit of spray painting dried pretty quickly! 40+ today near Sydney, so the tennis beckons in front of the air-con. Ian

Hi Guy's, well I didn't expect to see so many replies so quickly here. My first chance to get at the computer since putting this up, the boss is still catching up on some shut eye, yes, even at 11. am. I don't intend to wake her at all, so peaceful at this time of day, when it happens. We copped a real good strong wind from the SE yesterday after lunch and all it did beside give us some relief was to also produce a great dust storm that lasted all afternoon. Now Saturday morning and we have the relief at last, A good southerly wind and a lot cooler at last. Another tank order just came in, will have to think about it, damn, I was just getting the right feel about this resting in the recliner, under the air,cond, watching Utbube with a beer close by. Cheers John

Good on you John. Yes, we can get away with the "too hot to do anything" excuse for a while. Beer under the air con does sound nice though. All jokes aside, when it's raining and cold you can just put a jumper on , that doesn't work in the hot. Look after yourself-Cheers.

Same reason here for the no beers, well not very many. I sometimes have 2 stubbies. I go through water like it is going out of fashion which is a part of the diabetes but more due to the heat and my sweaty disposition.

Understand your 40+ heat and sympathise. But I'm freezing my tits off here and it's effin snowing at -8. Fireplace is pumping out heat as I stuff it with wood and my nose is still cold. God what a difference a frickin hemisphere causes...
