    Yes, what a mess in the garden, and carport roof shattered. Bushwalking today involved packs above heads technique to block the golf ball sized hail at one point.

    Bombing low looking like crossing VIC to end a short spell of hot weather on Sunday. Based on the models, I think it looks sketchy.

    Worst timing ever.
    December is nuts for my work and no time to reschedule. Working outdoors sucks big ones over 35c

    Cancelled race meetings in Victoria due to heat. Soft.

    Australia - the nation that loves to talk up our extreme weather to foreigners but too scared to leave the air conditioning.

    The people of Mildura would be laughing pretty hard. They must just shut down for the summer months. Too dangerous to go outside.

    Copy that.

    Half the reason I had to bail from Qld was the heat stress.
    and the Ross River biz.

    Possible cyclone over the NT next week. Hope it heads south and brings some moisture with it.

    The south east gulf is the more likely scenario. If it comes off FNQ is expected to get bucketloads of rain. We need it here, the place is drier than a nun's you know what at the moment

    Could perhaps wipe a cpl of deg off tmrws forecast max of 41?
