Unfortunately not. We've got a lot of problems with the tracks melting and bending, and the air conditioning isn't rated for above 33 degrees C so they all fail too. Yesterday was 43 degrees, day before 39, today will be 43, tomorrow 43... and a cool 35 on Saturday.

We've had such a (relatively) cool summer so far, this week has come out of nowhere. It's 7:12am as I write this and 33C (91.4F) degrees, after getting down to 29 overnight

I'm driving to work today, miss the million train cancellations.

What's ice? smiling

Sometimes we get a few hail stones.. it's pretty rare and they're usually tiny.

But then again it hasn't rained for at least 6-7 weeks here, not a single drop. We've been in a drought for years and years (decades really). And we've got bush fires going.

So it's hot, the state is on fire and we have no water.

Excellent!

Sounds like you're screwed pulse! smileys

Round here if we go 3 weeks without rain the farmers think we are having a drought! But we don't get snow here in winter, although there are ski fields only 2.5hrs drive away! smiling
