This is a graph featured on the Adelaide Now website of the temperature over the last day (click to view larger image). Note that it didn’t get below 34.4 degrees celsius last night. That’s night-time folks. The night’s when we want to sleep.
I had the air conditioning going all night but it didn’t make much of a dent in the bedrooms as it’s situated in the lounge. Tonight, the foam mattress I reserve for guests might make its way into the lounge.
If I don’t sleep in the lounge the spray bottle will get another workout.
The #adelaideheatwave is being talked about on Twitter if you want to read others’ comments.
I’m keeping an eye on the ETSA website to see who’s out of power and I note that the power was out in suburb my sister lives in (the sister who’s had her air conditioning on non-stop since Monday evening).
