We’ve been a little warm today

For Christmas 2012, J’s sister and brother-in-law gave us a thermoclock with a remote sensor. It’s pretty cool being able to sit inside the house and see how hot (or cold) it is inside as well as outside.

Surprisingly, the car thermometer didn’t get above 38.5C on my trip to the bike shop this arvo (needed some new gloves), unlike 4 December:


Still, while it’s darned hot here, at least we don’t have an imminent bushfire threat like J’s sister does, the NSW Rural Fire Service page Total Fire Ban and Current Fire Danger Map makes very sobering reading.
