Escaping The Heat
For the first time ever, we've had cooling going all night. We had cooling in the house we lived in 6 years ago and we never had it going all night before. Such is our heatwave. I decided this morning it's a worrisome state of affairs when you think 37C is looking like a cool change. Dh's brother is right ~ it's easier to get warm when it's really cold. He's just flown in from snowy Colorado! Poor man.
I also experienced a moment of concern when I detected a hint of smoke in the air. Having checked the CFA incident site I think it's either come from a small fire down the hill or drifted in from Gippsland.
So today in my quest to avoid overheating I am going to make icy poles for the kids. If we still have some, it might just be made from cordial. Otherwise I'll buy some juice or something to make them with. We have some friends coming to share our cool home so we'll have sandwiches for the kids and salads for the Mum's. I need to run up the street and grab a couple of things so I'd better get going and do that before Dh leaves for work.
If you're in Adelaide or Melbourne, make sure you find somewhere cool to be. Be it a pool, or someone elses home, or a shopping centre. Drink lots and be sensible.
