At the same time, you can't go sticking your thermometer into a cup of coffee that happens to be on the court and report the players experienced temperatures of 212F.

Is it normal in Texas to drink hot coffee on the tennis court at 43C in the shade? shocked

Tasmania had record highs today. Flinders Island just off the coast north from here (between here and Melbourne) scored our all time state highest of 41C (106F). That was 19C (34F) above average! Here we met our previous record for a January day of 35.6C. It's still over 30 in my study at 10pm.

(good grief, now I'm quoting myself - how indulgent!)
Weather update - Tasmania's record lasted one day before another place scored a 42 yesterday! And my town had their hottest recorded day of 38C (100.4F). Today is a bit cooler but not much.

Sure is making the news here with the televising of the Open.
I know I am one of a very few, but I'll take heat over
20 below zero any day. It hurts.

Well it didn't seem to affect Serena Williams too much! She demolished Safina like a Mack Truck.

And how about that epic with Nadal and Vedasco? Have you ever seen more amazing tennis than that match? Incredible!

Can Federer equal Sampras' record tonight? I think he can, the way he's playing.

What a game! I was thinking Federer as well. My eyes are slightly droopy this morning.

She certainly is sui generis.

Hey there New Zealand: Your little critter (what is it?) looks quite cool. Is it hot
there like Australia??

Kia ora Luke,
The little critter is a Kool Koala, especially for our mate Pook across the ditch. And yes it is very hot at the moment but my heart goes out to all our Aussie cuzzies who have been affected by the fires.

The lastest death toll is likely to be around 110-120. These Victorian fires are now the worst in our history. They followed a record 46.5 degree day in Melbourne. Hundreds of people are burned or injured, around 800 houses razed to the ground, including several whole small townships, and over 330,000 hectares of forest burned (a hectare is about 2.2 acres I think).
