Watching and waiting

This afternoon/evening was a family day, so not much to report other than that, and doing some grocery shopping in the morning.

My main preoccupation the last few days has been monitoring the news about the bushfires around Sydney, and the heatwave weather conditions. We had a brief respite today with lower temperatures with a sea breeze cooling things down along the coast. Tomorrow however is going to be the worst day of this heatwave, with temperatures of 47°C expected for parts of Sydney. Several temperature records are likely to fall.

And the fires have approached dangerously close to several towns. More homes and buildings were lost today, as well as two firefighters’ lives. Tomorrow is going to be terrible. Mass evacuations and some destroyed houses at best. I don’t want to think about the worst.

    1. I don’t know, thankfully. That’s an extreme on one day of the year. The hottest I’ve experienced where I live is only around 45°C. I sat in an air-conditioned office most of the day, and went outside for about 2 minutes just to feel what it felt like. (It was cooler in the morning and evening when I commuted to/from work.)
