Perth is baking...

Well, we're now heading into our fifth consecutive day of 36-degree plus temperatures. It's punishingly hot - great when you can slip into something cool like the Indian Ocean, but not so great at the desk or trying to sleep at night.

Spent the long weekend up at Lancellin teaching the young bloke how to boogie board and wallowing in the ocean - superb - even lunched on a lobster to complete the scene while I watched the Dockers complete a narrow win over the Woods. Imagine playing AFL in this sort of heat!!!

Anyway, took a photo of this interesting, yet unfortuately rainless cloud that hovered above me over the weekend - at least it blocked the sun for a few fleeting minutes...

Ah, ducted air conditioning: the best three and a half thousand dollars I ever spent.

Bland, I've got it too, but the other half doesn't like it running at night - personally, I'd have it set at 16 degrees, warp speed fan all the time!!!

Jeff Farmer won that game against Collingwood...five goals! Hot day though. The Subi authorities don't like night games being played, so the players need to wear ice packs on their chests when not on the field.

I expect the weather will cool off a bit by the end of March. Until then, keep your Coopers at the back of the fridge.

Just happened to press the 'next blog' button.

If there's only more sun back here, I'm sure a lot of people here will be more happy.
