Heatwave...

Yeah,, we are experiencing a scorching Summer Heat here in Australia.. Although I was born and raised in the Philippines, and Im quite used to having a hot weather, I still find the Australian Heat.. non tolerable!!!! 

It just burn you from inside!! I feel like my bones are burning too,, ha ha ha..
And when a 43-45 C heat  is on,,,  oh men,,, its not really exhausting,, and makes me feel irritated.
 I just stay inside the house and keep  myself cool... I also think about my hubby whenever he works down the factory. The factory is juts like any other  steel buildings  and if  not well insulated or well ventilated it feels like you're in an oven... So whenever hubbys back from work I would always offer him a cold beverage, and make sure the aircon is on..

Melbourne is having a heatwave at the moment, last week we, Sydneysiders have experienced a high temperature , but good thing it is around 28 C at the moment, hope we wont  hit the high 40s C again....

Imagine also the tennis players who are playing at the Australian Open, which is at Melbourne ,, as I watched the game you can see the players soaking wet,,, they seemed like they are in a sauna..  I like watching Australian Open and I like Roger Federer to win the mens final!!! Go go go!!!


Melbourne is on track to break another weather record on Friday, with its temperature expected to reach 43C.

If this happens, it will be the first time since records began in 1855 that the city has had three consecutive days of temperatures above 43C.

Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Richard Carlyon said the weather was only slightly better than Thursday for firefighters with temperatures remaining high and it would be less windy.

However, the rain that firefighters desperately needed was still a long way off, he said.

Melbourne is experiencing its driest period since 1965 with 27 days without rain and there is none forecast in the immediate future.

The city's record dry spell occurred in 1955 when the city had 40 days without rain, the bureau said.

Ambulance Victoria will increase the number of ambulance units available on Friday to cope with the expected increase in the number of people affected by the heat.

On Thursday, the average daily work load more than doubled with 1,305 emergency cases.

Ambulance Victoria CEO Greg Sassella said the third day of the heatwave was expected to stretch its resources and called on the public to act responsibly in the heat and use medical services appropriately.
