Temperature in Sydney Australia at the air port today reached a staggering 42.5 deg celcius (112-114 deg)

This is the third highest reading since they started recording, first was 1939, next was 2006 on New Years day.

Over 100 bush fires burning with in our state of New South Wales alone. Expecting a cool change around mid night. Phew it was warm.

    Funny thing about summer; it happens every year and it is natural that a few records are changed each year. Today, in beautiful down down Willard (Utah, USA) we will be lucky if the temperature reached 10 deg F. As I scribe this note it is 4 below (F). and I sure wish I was down under today....

    Started out at 29º in my car port this morning at 6am - it's up to 55º at the moment. Supposed to drop down in the 20's the next couple nights - toward the weekend 65 on Friday and 70 possible on Saturday - nighttime is predicted in the 40's. Spring has sprung, more or less.
