"SOUTH Australia will suffer six consecutive days of 40C-plus temperatures in the hottest such stretch in a century - and today the mercury has topped 45C (113F).
Not since 1908 has Adelaide recorded such a long run of temperatures over the 40C mark.
The stretch includes yesterday's top of 43.2C (110F) and today's excruciating temperature of 45.7C (114F) at 3:31pm.
So far, today is the third-hottest day ever recorded in Adelaide. The other two were in January, 1939 - when the mercury reached the all-time of 46.1C (115F)."
It's been hot! Public transport was disrupted today when railway tracks buckled due to the heat. I'm off to work tomorrow. It's usually a fridge there and no doubt I will look very odd walking up into town with a jacket over my shoulder - the forecast is for 44C (111F). I don't think that I'll be venturing outside unless I have to. Hopefully I won't have any meetings offsite!
See you soon.
