I don't get to say this very often where I live so......Besides Wednesday, the temp by me has stayed around 20.C Very nice indeed!
I had no idea it ever got to 118 degree's there......Must be a "Dry Heat"...

get bent aussie, it's -5F (-20c) where I'm at currently.

The upside is that most of the bugs and animals here cannot kill me, so that's nice.

nope, it can be as humid as hell, high temps are quite common.

most bugs and animals can't kill me either, I think you have been watching too many embellished documentaries.

Hey if you find you have too many large Crocs we can sure use them in the river on our US Southern Boarder.

North of the equator, we're not accustomed to snakes taking pieces off our asses. That's a different kind of surprise "from down under."

yeah, that happens all the time, kind of why it made the news, lots of bears hiding in toilets too.

He's talking about Drop Bears.

Chocolatemoose I feel for you guys on the mainland. We are just across Bass Strait in Northern Tassie and it hasn't gotten above 29C here. Still feels hot to us though.
