Yesterday the thermometer went up to 40ºC (104ºF) in harbour side Sydney; I hate to think how hot it was out west. People ask me how I can knit in summer; well, the heat was followed by lashing rain and howling winds in the afternoon and the night was mild at 17ºC (62.6ºF). Right now, it’s 14ºC (57.2ºF) and won’t nudge past 20ºC (70ºF)today. The rain never ceased. Don’t you wish you are here?
