Heatwaves II

Ironically I would say this new heatwave has been kinda cool.

On Tuesday we had the hottest January day on record since 1939, thanks to global warming. I'm not sure what they blamed the heatwave in 1939 on... probably the Germans.

When the checkout girl at Woolworths asked how I was going that day and I replied "Alright, a little hot" she got this glazed look in her eyes.

And 36 degrees feels curiously refreshing when the sun is going down.
