And you wonder why I prefer living here to Aus?

My home sate of South Australia has been suffering the worst heat wave in almost 100 years (in fact if it lasts till Sunday the record will be broken) Temps have been over 40C for over the last too weeks causing at least 33 deaths, power outages and buckling railway lines!

I'd much prefer the temps here, at least you can put more clothes on if you are cold!

Some pics

Sounds good, why cant we get summers like that any more?

I want it how it used to be, massive snow falls in winter, too bloody hot in summer. Bring back the 80s weather patterns.
