As the old song says, 'we're having a heatwave,'.
This January, Sydney has broken records, not ones that I suppose we think much about. Since records have been kept, this January has re-written them.
Days with temperatures in the low 40'sC and nights in the high 20'sC, have made us uncomfortable.
I thought that I'd see how they reported heatwaves, when our ancestors were alive.
This is from the Lithgow Mercury (NSW 1888-1954) and Monday January 4 1909, p4.
At least we have the benefit of air conditioners and fans to help alleviate the heat.
