Our World Tuesday - Hot

Today was the first 40 degree day in our part of the world. Anything over about 38 is 100 degrees in the old money. So, if you are sitting in your house looking out at snow and frost, your are very lucky. I’m sitting in my house watching the pavement melt!

This morning (when it was a bit cooler!) I was out banding birds, and I took this image while we were waiting. The colours are pure Australian summer.

I was back in the car on the way home by about 11.00 am – and the temperature at already reached the 36 mark! Enjoy the snow if you have any!

You can find more pictures from around the world at Our World Tuesday .

You can also see the most recent post on my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention link on the RHS of the page.

Enjoy the pictures.
