No Worries, Mate!

Yesterday, Australia experienced its hottest nationwide average temperature ever — 40.33 degrees C (104.6 degrees F). Today, the country's national weather bureau added a new color to official weather forecast maps, reflecting a need to predict temperatures higher than 52 C (125.6 F).

Not to worry though because it is all the way on the other side of the world and even in another hemisphere and we had snow in lots of places. Oh! And assault rifles and high cap mags for everyone!

We were in Adelaide, South Australia in February once, and took a ride down to the beach at the end of the peninsula we were near. It was 104 F. that day - but you know what they say, "it's a dry heat." Seriously, I wasn't as hot as I am in New Jersey at 90 degrees with our drenching humidity. That said, it is pretty amazing that the entire country of Australia averaged that degree of heat. No global warming? Hmmm.
