    Well it's official.
    Hottest week on record for Melbourne
    Buckled train tracks (didn't matter, no power to run the trains)
    power stations in meltdown (literally... The insulation melting off the wire )
    Constant power cuts.
    Stinkin hot & playing scrabble by candle light. (At least I won )

    Holy Carp! I hope you and other in Oz can stay cool. Is your water still running? I wonder if it would help if you ran a sprinkler over the roof (to help cool down the house)?

    You are the first on my list to send snow.

    Wow... and I thought AZ was hot in the summer.. thankfully it's not quite that hot... I can't even imagine the heat without AC though... What are the temperatures?

    Ya snafu, hurry up and send him all the snow you can. Although you may not even have enough.

    We are 8 years into a drought, we are not even allowed to wash our cars with a hose, let alone use a sprinkler. (stage 3A water restrictions)

    Given it is in the Snowy Mountains next to Tredbo & the Perisher Valley ski resorts, it sounds pretty good. But would you want to live in NSW?

    Hey at least I'm not in Adelaide, They have had 29 people die from the heat in the last two days.

    We hit -9C with gusts - not sure how fast but enough wind with snow to cause white outs. My new tires keep me on the road through drifts and ice.

    BTW how big is your urban snowman? The one at the end of my driveway is about 6' tall.

    Since the city never plows when it should only about 4 feet tall, we have glacial ice on the street though. What we have had far too much of this year is bitter cold.
