I am in Adelaide. Where I am it is 45.6C (114F) and that is hot.
I can easily remember these sort of days when I was a kid back in the 60s and 70s. Sure we may break a record today, it may be 1/2 a degree hotter than the last hottest day but so what. This is Australia, it is hot in summer. Seriously a five day stint of above 100F is not unusual. Happens most years.
When I was a kid we didn't have air conditioners. You just sat quietly in front of a fan reading a book and being careful not to let your sweat drip onto the pages. You stayed hydrated.
But, bloody hell it is hot.
The news on the radio was saying it is the hottest and longest spell above 40 degrees since 1908.

Well buddy I don't think the rest of the world be in agreement with you considering the extreme cold weather patterns that seem to be occurring all over America, Europe and the United kingdom right now.
