Hottest day ever… really!

Our Front Lawn

It so the hottest day ever recorded in my town today and its amazing. The wind is whipping down from the north pushing the temperature higher and higher, it topped 45.3 C which is 114 F and may go higher still. The steps burn through the rubber soles of my shoes, the front lawn has thrown its hands in the air, curled up and died. Trees drop their leaves as though Autumn has begun but really they have been cooked. It’s quite exhilarating, almost apocalyptic. So now it’s off to the beach for a swim before a cool change comes sweeping through this evening.

That's exactly what my front lawn looks like. It's just reached 46 here in Mildura and I really hope it doesn't get any higher. Hope you were able too off at the beach.
