Live and learn everyone !!! You have moved to a very warm country that has very little rainfall !!!! last year we had a record heatwave and this year we have record heat temperatures !!!! A word of advise would be leave NOTHING to chance and expect the unexpected. Don't get caught out again next year as this will become the usual enviroment that we all now live in.
I think i can " hear " the pom coming out in a few newbies now the novelty has worn off.
By the way, if traffic lights are not working you treat the junction as if there was a roundabout in the middle - i.e. give priority to the right.
And I wouldn't "stock up on food" as was suggested - firstly, what's the point of filling the fridge/freezer if it all gets ruined and secondly, hey, what better way than escaping the heat than to go out to a restaurant in a suburb with power and use their cooling for a bit! :-)
Finally, if you are using your air conditioning, try and limit the number of rooms you try to cool to avoid overloading your system - shut as many doors as possible and just cool a room with tiles if you can. I speak from experience as someone whose air conditioning unit has been really struggling in these temps!
Stay cool folks! Cooler nights are coming....
Sometimes the grass will appear greener on the other side because it has been fertilised by bull****
If your worried about your freezer shopping etc, we had the first power cut which lasted 8 hours it may have been a little longer we don't know as we were out enjoying ourselves.
All our Fridge and Freezer stuff survived OK and was all still well and truly frozen when the power came back on. Admittedly they are new appliances so they should be very efficient.
I'm enjoying the heat but at night without air-con due to power cuts is a different story and I feel for all those with the kids.
Never mind thats the card we were dealt so off for another swim and bottle....
Just shows how selective the cuts are, as we've only had the one 30 cut this arvo in Hartog Street, nothing yesterday or overnight. When Foodland was out today the main centre was out too, and Subway, but the library and the traffic lights by the pub were all on.
No sense to it at all
seaford rise hasn't been off yet so i guess we will just have to go out for tea just in case Might save me some money when it does as my wifes common excuse is that she has nothing defrosted !!!!
