To a Scot, New Year's Eve is known as Hogmanay. But how very un-Scottish that poor Adelaide today has 41 degrees Celsius. And across Gulf St Vincent, here it only a cool 38 degrees. I guess anything less than blood heat counts as cool. Oh good.
But at least no problem staying awake until midnight (long past my bedtime). Nobody can sleep when it is so warm. Air-con? Can't afford to leave it running ALL night, mate.
