It was 44.8 degrees Celsius (112Fahrenheit) at 1:53pm here. Yesterday the power went out for an hour during the heat of the day. When it was restored, the new LG split we had connected last week, only a week ago, had busted. We have called the power company.We believe it is due to a power surge that the split system does not cool. The electrician will be coming around to assess it. Then the power company will send us some papers to fill out and send back. I hope the process does not take too long. The next week is set to be over 30degrees Celsius (95F)...which means the kid will be so hot...I don't care for me, I do care for the kids.
Other half began back at work yesterday after some vacation days. What a day to go back.it was so hot and windy and yuck and everyone is just so over it already. I think there is more to come.
Still, at least we have power. The kids have been hopping in and out of the bath all day (not changing the water, they are not dirty it is more to cool down) and I have soaked some face cloths in water and frozen them in the freezer for around our necks. Bondi is very quiet too, so I have been dousing him with cool water too.
I feel for our emergency services today, it is so hot and so dry and so windy...the thought of fires scares me.
