Nah man, it's the Illuminati.

Feels like a 34 at the moment in Taringa, though outside feels a lot cooler. I just hope this was one of the "hotter" days.

40, but really dry so not so bad. There was a fire about 5k from here which was a little unsettling, because I'm in heavy bush with no way of getting anywhere quickly, and it was the hottest day in over eleven years.

When I got back this afternoon the thermometer inside said 48'c, then I opened the windows and doors and the kick arse wind cooled the house quickly. I even purchased a fan today but didn't need to use it (nice high ceiling, nicely positioned house, patio keeps the house at a reasonable temp).

Cos it might get hot for like a day or two, then you get days of like 15 degrees afterwards. Theres only really 6 to 8 weeks of the year where you even really need to bother with air conditioning, and I'll take cold winters over hot summers any day because its soooooooooooooooo much easier to warm up when cold than it is to cool down when it stinking hot and humid.

Even when its ridiculously hot in Melbourne it doesn't feel as bad, like a few years back when it hit something like 43 and train lines were buckling and the freezers in the 7-11 and the Coles near me just died cos they couldn't take it, if you stood in the shade you'd still get a nice cool breeze and it wouldn't even feel that bad. I dunno why, I'm not some scientist meteorologist guy, but its like the heat doesn't hang in the air in Melbourne, even when its stinking hot, the breeze is still cool and the air is still cool. But when its really bad in Brisbane the air is like a solid block of heat that just smacks you in the face as soon as you walk out into it and theres no escape.

I agree but winter in brisbane is so awesome it's what i wish summer was.

I can choose to wear shorts or pants, shirt or jacket, any combination of any of my washed clothes. I don't even have to try.

Shame summer sucks. But that's what holidays are for :P

I say this all the time to people! They just don't get it..

Melbourne has 2 things over Queensland when it's hot, it has the cold winds blowing in off the Southern Ocean and it doesn't have the tropical/sub-tropical humidity.

But yeah re. the OP much the same as Superform, between 0 and 5 and snow!

Low humidity will do this. Stinking hot in the sun, significantly cooler in the shade.

20 today, only 15 degrees above average for this time of the year. Having said that it was 2 a week ago and should be 4 or 5 max the next couple of days... tomorrow might be one of those days around here where it gets colder as the day goes on.

Yeah its been stinking hot in Coorparoo yesterday and today. Nothing an air con couldnt fix but. It doesnt feel that humid which is a good thing. Hate humidity more than hot weather.
Imo, Brisbane this year has replicated Melbournes erratic weather patterns. Rain, then not, then cold night, then not, then sun, then not, then cold, then not.

Wasn't too bad because we had a lead up to it, and a strong breeze making it bearable. No breeze and a under 30 day the day before makes it worse for me.

Most people realise there's a massive difference in energy consumption between a fan and an air-conditioning unit.

Obviously there's a time and a place for aircon, but routine use of it is just a waste of energy because some sheltered pricks can't handle it when the thermometer breaks 30.

Happy Christmas Jim and enjoy the English sun whilst it lasts.

Toddlers can drown in one of those things.
It needs to be fenced for the times when you fill it and forget to empty it.

Air-Con is awesome for hot humid summer nights.
Even if you dont have it cold, just to get that humidity down.

It's not that hard, if you deal with one or two hot days you'll find yourself not so worried and sleeping better in the following ones.

It's all about what's available though isn't it.. If i'm in an apartment building with shared electricity bills with housemates etc, then im gonna use it, because they will. But honestly I don't mind a bit of sweat during the day.

I think you do, I know it used to be that you could have a door with a lock/handle that was raised but many of the places i've been looking at (houseshopping) have at to add a fence and pool gate blocking off the pool area to get a newer pool cert
