November 12th 2009 was going to be a hot day in the middle of what was turning out to be a hot week. 5 days so far of over 35ºC. This is unusual for November and we have had temperatures of over 35ºC and up to 42ºC here on Hindmarsh Island. We wanted to go shopping at Mount Barker (75km – 47miles away) and so decided to leave early so that we could be home before mid-day and the extreme heat hit us. Well it was hot!

We are having very unusual weather here at present. We are in the midst of an extreme heatwave. This will be the 3rd day of over 40C heat. There is a northerly wind and today may turn out to be an explosive day in regards to bushfires. The sunrise gives no indication of the day ahead.
Well no bad bushfires happened but from a personal point of view the heatwave was very expensive for us. During a heat related power flick my work computer has developed ‘issues’. Sigh. And before going to bed we discovered the large 10 cu ft upright freezer at home had carked it. We moved $700 worth of luckily still frozen food, to daughter’s home/freezers at midnight.
