Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
It's nearly 5.30 on a nasty hot humid Sunday in Sydney.

The latest temperature listed at Sydney Observatory Hill was 44.2 Celcius at 4.24pm. I'm about 1km from this site which is next to the Harbour Bridge.

I've been hiding from the weather all day behind dark curtains with the fan whirring away, tho I can still feel the heat & humidity. In an hour or so I'll open the blinds when the heat & glare subside, & I might go for a walk after 8pm as I did last night.

Southerly changes usually are cool, so a walk seems a Good Idea.
