Still as hot as HADES
The demise of a Mr Whippy Ice Cream van!!!!
I got this picture from my good buddy Jan at Yarrawonga so it seems that Adelaide isn't the only hotspot but there has been 6 consecutive days over 40 C, the hottest day for 100 years, (45.7 C) the highest overnight minimum ever recorded here, (34.9 C) and we have another 6 days of 37 C, (100 F) or higher still to come.
There has already bee 32 heat related deaths, a huge bushfire in Victoria which has claimed 28 houses but fortuneatly no lives, this fire appears to have been lit by an arsonist to make matters worse.
There has been widespread power blackouts, public transport services all but failed for 2 days, generally speaking its been a fun time!!!!!
Through it all Vicki has been as well as could be hoped, so at least thats somrthing to be thankful for.
