    Well Bumblebury hit 39.1 at 12:30 before dropping nearly 6 Deg in half an hour on a wind change.

    Unusual for us to be hotter than Perth.

    We're certainly making our contribution to the carbon tax this afternoon!

    Oh dear, had to google it to find out where it was [​IMG]

    I suppose when you live somewhere you don't have much of an interest in local hotels. Driven past it plenty of times, just never really noticed it.

    Am actually down in bussleton in a week or so for a court case (contesting a speeding fine). Figured I might as well make the most of it and do some fishing with the kids off the jetty. Any suggestions on where to stay in bussleton for a couple of days?

    Depends what you are looking for. There are plenty along Bussell Highway heading to Dunsborough.

    Took some UK relies to the Bayview Geographe Resort for a few days before Christmas. RM booked it on some sort of deal. Nice setting, couple of pools (indoor/outdoor) good access to beach. Getting a bit tired, nothing special.

    Stayed at Broadwater Beach Resort for a weekend in Oct. Better than Bayview, and restaurant is reasonably priced with good food. Actually walked there from Bayview one evening for a meal.

    Have also been to Abbey Beach and Amalfi but a few years ago. From memory both were OK.

    Just remember it's school holidays and judging by the traffic heading south after Christmas, it may be a case of what you can find.

    Absolutely, by a factor of about 4, if you don't include the time off work, , but it is the principal of it...

    some principals arent actually worth fighting. what's your probability of success? and if you lose, then was your principal incorrect?

    So according to the BOM, Perth hit 42.1 today. With a relative humidity of 15%!!!!!!!!!!

    Fark me that's dry.

    And now the clouds are rolling in. Awesome. Just like a big blanket to trap the heat in.

    Yep as I was saying to Gareth, our alfresco area got to 44.3, and that is a professional level radiation shielded gauge in the shade! A few tiles and living in a hollow bumps the temp by an extra 2-3 C ... Thank Christ for misters! Drop the apparent temp by at least 5 C!

    In Dubbo we been having mid 30's up to 38 for last few days and for the next week. Its actually not too bad. Cools off nicely at night so really its just the period between 1pm and 5pm that is not nice to be out doing stuff. Either side of that is very nice. Perfect for outdoor eating.

    Maximum in Dubbo has been hotter than 35 for 12 of the last 15 days. And is forecast to be well above 35 for the next 7 days.

    Got the sprinkler going flat out for 4 hours a night to keep the lawn looking good.
