Groundhog day

Every day is 30 degrees and sunny - it hasn't rained in weeks - and here I am again in an airport. Same old, same old. The weather is just freaky. We should be getting cool and autumnal about now but it is just endless endless summer.

This is the walk around the golf course we did on Sunday morning. I should be starting to run again now my toe is healed but it's just too hot. I know that other people run even in extreme heat but they don't have three inches of subcutaneous fat. It's like running in a fur coat, except heavy.

On the plus side, this is the time of year we bought the house and I always remember why. Just for a month the sun buckets into the living room. Very pleasant, although it would be better if it wasn't still 30 degrees. Never mind, off to Hobart today where it is 17 degrees and rainy! I probably won't get time to go outside but I have a cardie just in case.


  1. Whereas here, we seem to be stuck in endless winter, or at least very early spring. We've had so much cold weather and rain. 17 degrees is a distant dream for us at the moment!

  2. Be careful what you wish for - for months I have been lamenting the endless hot humidity of Auckland, but this week we suddenly got caught with a southerly storm. Only 12 degrees, multiple trees blown down, and at one point over 140,000 households without power, while we were powerless for 10 hours - some people are still waiting to be reconnected three days later!
