Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
You think you've had hot in Sydney? You may have had one very hot day on Sunday, but you should have been in Gulgong, where I have just come back from the folk festival there.

The day I arrived (Thursday the 29th) I carried a backpack and wheeled a large suitcase up a steep hill in 38 degree heat. From then on, EVERY DAY was like that, or hotter.

Thursday - 38
Friday      - 40
Saturday - 40.3
Sunday    - 39.2

Today was cooler, only getting up to 34.

Needless to say, we spent as much time as possible in air-conditioned pubs. Unfortunately there were events we had to be at, such as the Music Hall Concert on Saturday in the Opera House (which should be called the Hothouse) where we were up on stage under lights performing in the middle of the day. It was probably nearer 50 up there! Good festival though... :-)
