Hot in Nth Vic.
« on: February 09, 2017, 15:14 »
Hot here. 44c in the shade.
Ute temp with windows down an inch/25mm are 55c/130f on the floor and 70c in the sun on the seat. No wonder dogs die and kids get heatstruck. It only took about 15 minutes to rise to that temperature.
Back to work, getting nearly too hot for overalls.
The Bpc outing gets cancelled on a fireban day. Not sure what region Castlemaine is. Our outing is this weekend.

That's nice and hot. Unfortunately that heat is heading towards NSW.
If it is safe to do so, you might need to lower the windows even more or close them up completely, turn on the aircon and take a break in the cool car.
Keep hydrated mate!

Yes, and try buying a humble fan today and you'd be out of luck.  In winter they can't give them away...

My workshop building is owned by local plumbers who live nearby. The old evap unit on the roof is rusty now and leaks some water. Someone must have complained and they turned the water off without saying anything to us. Lucky i have a very long ladder. Back on again now.
I see an electrician parked in our driveway today. The shop owners AC stopped working yesterday so he had a new unit installed the same day. Good for some.
I see last winter Bunnings had pedastal fans for $13.
