Just cold here now, but we're expecting a possible snow flurries/freezing rain/sleet mix this weekend. The kind of panic generating stuff for this area. Who knows if we'll really get it or how much, but I will take precautions.
40 degrees C is 104 Fahrenheit according to some conversion sites I checked, I hated doing those conversions in chemistry classes, why didn't they teach us the quicker method some of those sites listed. I knew that anything over about 30 Celsius was on the warm side just from rough guesstimates.
You have my sympathies, dean. What kind of work do you do?
I work in audio/visual for a speaker company, but that time I was checking a plasma/surround set up for a customer of ours. I drove about 70kms that day, and usually use the company car, but since it was late in the day, I took mine so that I could go home instead of swinging by the shop first and have them wait for me to get back.
You guys really should convert to the rest of the world. Uneducated slobs...
As for the weather, we've just had a complete reversal again. Rain for the last few days [a welcome sight indeed]. The flipside is that it's not in any of the catchment areas [or at least not as much as it could be] so the water reserves aren't topped up. But at least it's given the firefighters a bit of a rest.
Of course, there's the massive flash floods that have been around because of the sudden deluge... From crippling fires, to flash floods...
Well, no, that's just the way the weather is down here: unpredictable. It's been that way all my life.
