What a day! It's hot! Yesterday the weather bureau said it expected 42 degrees c but it has exceeded all expectations with 45 degrees c. The poor native birds are sitting on the fountain edge with their mouths open and panting. There are two young lorakeets there as well with the adult birds but they are suffering badly. I filled up the fountain to the top and there has been a steady trickle of birds sitting by the water. It's going to be a hot monster week with forecasts above 41 for most of the week and I think it will top Adelaide's hottest day on record.
Lookee here, my litttle pots in the Jam factory all sold. I don't have to pick any up. Great,
as it's too hot to go to town on the Oban bus.
No I am wrong. The hottest day has been recorded as 46.1 in 1939.
