    All I say is "Thank goodness that high has left us and is on its way east" Apparently the hottest day today was Eyre - 47.7deg C. Yuk. Our hottest WA day on record was in the Eucla - 1979 - 49.8.

    You running a bore? No water restrictions obviously [​IMG]

    Can you post what your excess water charge is when the bill comes in [​IMG]

    The council runs a few bores. No real need for restrictions for a town of this size with ample water supply.

    Keen to see the bill myself. Don't expect it to be very much. Normal use is about $30/quarter. IMO - its worth more than that for my 1 year old to have a nice soft friendly lawn to get around on. Plus also keeps things cooler in the house.

    More crazy weather for the SW. This morning was fine if a little hot and sticky. Just heard a thump and looked out the window at leaves flying everywhere. Then investigated to find our garden umbrella, already folded down, had been chucked over a 2m fence!

    Just looked at the radar. Another dump heading south, and judging by what has just happened, high winds too.

    we got some good solid rainfall this morning, enough so we didnt need to water the garden.

    BOM have amended the forecast for Perth up to 39 for today, but I dont think it will get anywhere near that.

    Still cloudy here and pushing 34 degrees. Only 47% humidity, but it seems much stickier than that.

    Disgusting here. Can I go back to France please?!
    It rained so hard I spent the morning mopping up from my leaky roof.
    Went to pick #3 up from training at lunchtime and got drenched when it rained big fat drops again, running to get under cover I splashed in a puddle and the puddle water was HOT!
    So very not cool.
    Not cool at all!

    agreed Trappers, actually hit 37 with an apparent temp nearly 39 - quite a surprising increase given at noon it was still only 27ish.

    I think the Cloncurry record has been shown to be incorrect with poorly calibrated and / or positioned equipment. There was a report out last year that over-turned it.

    TBH, I don't mind if all the heat is used up in January. Feburary can feel free to be nice and cool.

    We have a pool with a solar blanket on it, which hasnt been removed since NYE.

    I took the blanket off first thing this morning and I just checked the temp of our pool and the water is currently

    35 degrees :eek:

    35c at 23:15 and almost dead calm. Would be spectacular on the water or pool party. I'm hiding in 25c and been working since 1pm at home.

    Did get a nice morning swim in down at horse beach before heat kicked in though. Damn some of those fillies...
