Fark it's hot (Pt. II)

Today we beat the record for the longest heat-wave of any Australian capital city (Marble Bar's 160 day record ain't under any threat though). Many are starting to freak out a little as 30 knot winds started today and are predicted to last for a couple of days yet. Fires are already happening. People are shitting themselves that a repeat of the horrific Ash Wednesday fires may be on the cards. We just bought our first house in the Adelaide Hills so we're a little apprehensive at the moment. Chances are all will be OK, but the likelihood that this will become a once every few years event, rather than a once in every 50 year event, is a little worrying.
