The first month of 2014 is nearly over and we survived it. The weatherman said it has been the 4th hottest January on record and the heat isn't over yet. Today the temperature is expected to reach 40C, over the weekend it is expected to get to 43C, cool down Monday and Tuesday to the low 30C's and then steadily climb back up to the high 30/40C's.
After all it is Summer and staying indoors with the airconditioning on, you don't notice how hot it really is outside until you go out there.
Tonight the Chinese celebrate their New Year. This year it is the year of the wooden Horse.

Tomorrow afternoon/evening the Adelaide Chinese community are having a huge street party in the city. They are expecting around 20,000 people. I don't think we will go as the forecast is for temps to be around 42C.
