>It has been a week of extremes
half the country is under water. Seriously under water.
Not here though.
After all the rain we had in October/November, the dams are still delightfully full, but there’s been little evidence of moisture of late.
A week ago we had overnight lows of 4C/39F
… and today?
While it wasn’t the hottest New Year’s Eve I’ve experienced up here [ that distinction belongs to … I think … 2006, when it reached 48C, and was still over 40 at midnight ]
it did still get to 40.9. That’s 105.6F!
4 degrees above freezing to ” OMG I’m going to die of heat prostration” in less than a week.
Makes it very difficult to acclimatise
especially for the elderly.
My 90 year old, just-had-a-triple-bypass, darling Godmother came up for the day today, and I just kept thinking
“Thank God for the A/C”
After the visitors left, I was at a bit of a loose end, pottered around a bit, knitted some lace, browsed a couple of books … your basic dithering
then I decided to make another of those wrap aprons. Ma-in-law liked her Christmas one so much, I promised her another for her natal day in March.
I’m not sure whether this will be it.
At least this way I’ve got MIL covered 🙂
Happy New Year to you and yours, from me and mine
and I’ll be back tomorrow with news of some big changes Chez Catsmum
