Dang, that's quite cold! I don't think Bear and Masiv will be greatly affected by the weather since they live down south in Florida but up north in Virginia it's getting pretty cold, although it's not as bad as say Wisconsin and further north.

Pretty sure it is -50F, here in the states, I saw a -49 on TV this AM. As far as here in Central Florida, it is supposed to be between 26 & 30F in the AM tomorrow. For us, that is miserable, we are equipped for it down here.

Wow, that has to be some kind of record in regard to freezing weather. It is around 16F where I live and it was 6F last night. Definitely cold for up here. Considering the weather in Florida was in the 80s a couple weeks ago, that will be quite the shock. Stay warm!

We dropped 40 degrees in 15 hours when that front came through (75 degrees at 3:00pm to 35 degrees this morning). That was shocking, but the dogs loved wearing there coats and running around in the dog run.

It has been 44c (111.2F) for the last 5 days with only small breaks of 28c (82.4F) at night. It is brutal over here atm. I thought I was having a heart attack earlier today but I was lucky that it was only lack of fluids and salt, I did faint though.

The news says in one state alone 2016 people were rushed to hospital from heart attacks and heat related exhaustion.

The bush fires that WERE DELIBERATELY LIT (B*RSTARDS) reached up to 800c (1472F) th fire fighters must be the toughest beggars on earth.

I can't play games because the cutoff point for consoles, TVs, and PC's is 42c (107.6F) so I have to wait until the sun goes down. You won't see me playing games much.

We are expecting a cool change in just over 24 hours. I really hope it comes!

I should mention that this is not normal weather!

I heard that they have postponed the Australian Open until night. That is some brutal weather, much worse than the small cold front Virginia is getting. Stay cool and drink plenty of fluids! I would ship you some snow but it would be melted way before it reached you.

What kind of a****** would set a wildfire, especially in that kind of heat? Shoot, maybe the heat really did get to that person(s).

Again, stay cool and drink plenty of fluids!

Arsonists. A few years ago one of them was a firefighter who wanted to be a hero, and some kid started one of the others. Black Saturday, claimed 173 human lives and destroyed 2029 homes! I think the firefighter should have been charged with murder, or terrorism after causing that amount of damage and death.

Arsonist are devious people, that much is certain. Wow, that is truly tragic. All of those deaths and decimated homes all for one person's sense of glory, how sad.

I really wish the U.S. used Celsius instead of Fahrenheit.... damn U.S. trying to be different hahaha.

Yeah I've always wondered why the USA never changed over.

Don't worry I'm drinking lotS of water. I have 8 1.2 liter bottles of it in the fridge and freezer.

99.99999% of the year I'm an aussie patriot, but in that 0.00001% when it's this hot I wish I was born in the Canada or the UK :P

By Aussie standards it is a beautiful cool summers day!

Last night I heard "YAHOO" shouted down the street and watched as people began to dance in the street as a glorious cold front swept through.

On average I've been having around 10 cold showers a day and the air-con has been running full blast non stop. As awful as it sounds we got a tiny bit of rain and that was hot water that lasted for less than a min.

Anyway I'm in a good mood

Almost forgot: I went outside as the sun went down and the tarmac on the street had melted! it was all bubbly and sticky!

Try and stay cool brother. Fall is coming. Come on Fall, hurry up. My friend needs some relief.

Thanks!

27 days and summer will be over! Not usually happy about that lol

I'll be posting more in four days when the temp will finally drop below 43 and stay at the 37 to 38 (96.6 to 100.4) range.

I can only hope and pray that your countries summers this year don't get heatwaves like we have!

Australia is at a little disadvantage when it comes to summer and winter. The earth is at it's closest to the sun in January (about 3 million miles closer). Unfortunately, that's your summer. January also gives us the shortest days and you the longest. Ouch.

Well, February is here now and our days are getting longer and yours are getting shorter. Hooray.

With the exception of one blistering day several years ago when it reached 50c (122F), I can't remember days being this hot in NSW, or Victorian states.

Adelaide I remember it being really hot there I remember running across the street with no shoes on and my parents trying to get the melted tar off my feet, but even there it never rose above 45 (lot of desert there, they get a lot of heat).

Two summers ago we planned to escape the heat in our most southern state Tasmania, who's capitol city Hobart I might add is called the gateway to Antarctica. It is a land of snow and cold, and it never went below 84.2f while we were there.

Even though we are so close to the sun it's never been like this. I looked over NASA and the Aus Bureau of Meteorology records and we are getting hotter and hotter weather over the last 7 years.

As for the USA I've never heard of ice and snow in Florida before. Snow in Death Valley, and the Hudson river freezing over are pretty extreme too!
