The current heatwave in Adelaide is now the longest hot spell on Adelaide records.
We have now had 9 days in a row with temperatures above 35C. Apparently we have had 8-day heatwaves of above 35C in March before. The last one in 1934.
I don't like such records.
Unfortunately, we will break our own record tomorrow, the day after, and on and on, until at least next Monday. 14 days in a row!!! I sure wouldn't mind if the forecast was wrong there. Apparently we are in for 38C - 39C days until Monday.
Officially, it is autumn here.
I could post pictures of crispy fried leaves on various vegetable plants, but that would be too depressing. When you touch the leaves they just crumble to fine dust.
On a more positive note:
We measured the level of water in our water tank for the house and found it at a reassuring level. Slightly more than half-full. *phew*
All our water-saving measures are showing great results.
The garden water tanks still have some water in them. Enough to keep things alive. Hopefully.
Rain dance, anyone?
