Just whingers.
No one west of the Great Dividing Range (the real Oz)
cares about what Sydney suffers.

Actually just looked up Sydney's weather and it is
according to my Bing weather app 34 C or 93.2 F

But who cares. East coast snobs.
When Adelaide suffers 44C (111.2F) heat wave for 2 weeks it
doesn't even rate a mention on their news.

It gets so hot here that our candles melt, plastic toys shrivel,
camels die, we fry eggs on tin lids and you can drink 4 pints of
water and not go to the toilet.
:cool:

The forecast is for 34C which they are like to reach.
It is only 2.10 pm EST and it often gets hottest from 3-4PM

In the real Australia we just had last Saturday 41C or 105.8 Fahrenheit
but no one in Sydney cares.
For them it is only the East Coast. Nothing west of them matters.
Sound familiar?

No you don't get it.
There are two Australias.
The east coast consisting of Queensland [Brisbane] to New South Wales
[Sydney] and then Victoria [Melbourne]
The 'national' news always covers their weather.

And then there is the rest of Australia west of the Great Divide that
the east coast cares nothing for.

The weather generally here moves from west to east.
So when Adelaide South Australia has scorching devastating heat
waves we never get a mention.
But when this weather moves on eastward into Victoria and those
poor Melbournites get fried then you will get national alerts and warnings;
oh woe is us. Prepare for catastrophic conditions.
No mention of Adelaide.

So if Sydney swelters under 40+ degrees C no one west cares.
It just us and them.

I just don't get it about who gets mentioned how 'hot it is and where',
when you're hot, you're hot! I'd be happy to be left out of the news,
if no one really cares anyway...

'us against them', do you know how this sounds, concerning the weather!???

This sounds exactly like Canada. Except the Great Divide is not the dividing line, but northern Ontario. So, when central Canada, is hot, cold, snowy, rainy etc, it is news, not weather. The prairies can be -40 but it doesn’t get mentioned. When the east has weather issues, Trudeau rolls out the dough to make it better. When half of BC burns down with forest fires, or the town of Fort McMurray evacuates 100,000 people, and half the town burns down, he says, “Donate the Red Cross”. Sorry, you didn’t vote Liberal, you get no money.


To think I saw this headline, and I was thinking a heat wave was +6 C or 44F, like we had a few days ago. But really, today it was -1C/30F. Where we lived in Alberta, it was -34C/-30F today. So the difference between an hour plane ride, is 33C or 60F.

So, to think of how cold -34C/-30F is, think about 0C/32F. That is the point at whch water freezes, and snow stays. Now, the difference between that and Edmonton, if you go up, means 34C, a fairly hot day, although not as hot as Australia. Or 92F, time to put on the A/C. Between 2 provinces. And glad I have moved from the place that is so cold, all winter long!

Beautiful day here at 6800 foot altitude in Northern Arizona.
Sunny, 56, and no wind.
