Hell on Earth
Welcome to Adelaide, South Australia.
So the mercury just hit 46.6C, which would make it hottest day on record if that sticks as an official reading. Thats a prelimary number from the BOM and i'm not sure which site they use as the official Adelaide number (it was 47.7 in Kent Town). Not even 4pm yet so it might get higher although some clouds are rolling in and there's some `breeze' (more like a fan-forced oven).
Probably not the best day for it but I have to get out of the house for health reasons so time to go see what a burning city looks like first hand. Going to be a warm ride in.
