The heat is causing chaos, genuine chaos. If this is global warming then those in authority will need to be better prepared. I suspect it is just a plain old fashioned and extremely uncomfortable heat wave.
There are power cuts because the interconnectors from Tasmania and thus Victoria go down to save electricity. Apparently if it goes over 33'C in a small town in Tasmania then this is enough to trigger cuts.
Now there has been an explosion in power supply in Victoria - and they have enough problems because of bushfires, with homes already lost. I cannot imagine that. I wonder what I would grab if I could only take one thing? It is tempting to say my passport and head for the North Pole.
