Heatwave

Melbourne's in a heatwave. We haven't had consecutive days over 40C in 100 years apparently. Tennis players have pulled out of the Australian Open this week. Train tracks are buckling in the heat. The power went out at our place for about an hour. Melbourne suburbs have had no power as well. In my neck of the woods it got to 45.5C today. Yesterday it was 41.1C. Tomorrow we're expecting 43C. The air conditioner has been on all day, at times it felt like it wasn't working. I'd then go outside for a few minutes and come back in to feel the cooler air. Going to be a hot night tonight.
