It is official.....today Adelaide is the hottest city in the world. We are expecting 46C (114.8F). Adelaide has been in the news a lot lately, we were voted as one of the most liveable cities in the world, the Lonely Planet put us in the top ten places to visit, and now we are the hottest place in the world. Why would people want to live here or visit lol?
We still have lots of fires burning around the State. These were the ones started by the lightning on Tuesday.
Robyn has to go back to see the surgeon today to get her dressing off and so we offered to take her. She said at the time, that would be good because it may be too hot. For her to go on her own she would have to catch the train and get a taxi to the doctors. Little did we realise that it was going to be this hot!
*Update..........Well the official temperature didn't get to 46C.....it was only 44.2C. Robyn came to go to the doctor as Bob decided to stay home. He was trying to keep his birds cool and had to sprinkle the cages every hour or so. We took Robyn to the doctor and while in the car the temperature was showing 47C. It did get to 48C but I was too slow in getting the camera out.
After coming back from the doctor Tony and I decided to go and do some shopping. At 6.14pm it was still 45C. Can't wait for Saturday when they say we will have a cool change and the temp should be around 28C.
