Such a freak call of nature. Four others, I believe with very serious injury. Last day at primary school as well. What I thing to happen at anytime, but so close to Christmas , even more so. will the festive season ever be anything but a sad reminder for those parents impacted for the rest of their lives?  

Definitely Christmas won't be the same for those families.

A 5th child has sadly died now.

Must be express post. I had my one and only overseas Xmas card also arrive today from Norway. That took 27 days.

Only going to be 21 in Melbourne for Christmas Day. Should be ideal.

I remember when I was 21. Those were the days. 


Nearly there! Don't drop the ball now guys! Vaccines are weeks away. Stay safe!

My son's back from uni for Christmas.

Wife and I have lost five stone between us since he's been away. Did he notice? He did actually.

Yes that will be very difficult to cope with.

42 degrees plus sounds like hell.  Surely people can’t really go out in that heat and certainly can’t spend any amount of time in it.

No way. I think the most I've had is about mid thirties. We often eat outside on long tables on a verandah which is shaded so as long as you are not in the sun it is ok,

Get down the beach with thousands of others. Have to be there early though if you don't know anyone close where you can park. By early I'm talking before 7:00am, otherwise you'll have a long walk. Should be zero sea breeze with those temps though, take a brolly or one of those cabana things and set up for the day, should be brilliant. Won't be the same without the holidaymakers this year, mostly pommies who love a chat about where you're from, how you find it, how you got in, when you came. 

Still be packed though.

Just means beaches will be more packed earlier around Perth. What do people think? Everyone stays in with the curtains closed and aircon on🤣.

Just keep going for a dip if you get hot and have another beer or glass of champagne.

42 dry heat, next to no humidity will be just fine.

Only idiots and Englishmen would go to the beach when it is 42 degrees. You will come home looking like a lobster.

No mate, used to it. Just stay in the shade under a brolly. Be down there in a bit for a swim. Check out any Christmas pictures from Perth and they'll mostly be packed beaches.

Some will go away sunburnt looking like lobsters for sure, they'll be the ones who go about twice a year and don't use sunscreen.

Pail did say you need a cabana or find shade. Only time you’ll be in the sun is when you run down to the sea for a quick refresh. 

Ive been shopping along Rundle Mall in Adelaide in 40 degree heat and it was FAR more comfortable than Sydney in 30 degrees. Dry heat makes all the difference

God no, who wants to be surrounded by thousands of people in the baking heat? 😱  I'll have a peaceful walk in the Hills when it's cooled down in the evening.
