The Diary of a Mackay/Queensland SUMMER

August 31st: Just got transferred with work into our new home in Mackay!!
Now This is a city that knows how to live!! Beautiful sunny days and warm
balmy evenings. What a place! I watched the sunset from deck chair on the
verandah. It was beautiful. I've finally found my home. I love it here.

September 13th: Really heating up. Got to 35 today. Not a problem. Live in
an air- conditioned home, drive an air-conditioned car. What a pleasure to
see the sun everyday like this. I'm turning into a sun worshiper.

September 30th: Had the backyard landscaped with tropical plants today.
Lots of Palms and rocks. What a breeze to maintain. No more mowing lawn
for me.
Another scorcher today, but I love it here.

October 10th: The temperature hasn't been below 30 all week. How do People
get used to this kind of heat? At least today it's kind of windy though.
But getting used to the heat and humidity is taking longer that I
expected.

October 15th: Fell asleep by the pool. Got 3rd degree burns over 60% of my
body. Missed 3 days of work. What a dumb thing to do. I learned my lesson
though. Got to respect the ol' sun in a climate like this.

October 20th: I missed Kitty (our cat) sneaking into the car when I left
this morning. By the time I got to the hot car for lunch, Kitty had died
and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and stank up the $3,000
leather upholstery. I told the kids that she ran away. The car now smells
like
Wiskettes and cat sh*t. I learned my lesson though. No more pets in this
heat.

October 25th: The wind sucks. It feels like a giant bloody blow dryer!! And
it's hot as hell. The home air-conditioner is on the blink and the AC
repairman charged $200 just to drive over and tell me he needed to order
parts.

October 30th: Been sleeping outside by the pool for 3 nights now. Bloody
$450,000 house and we can't even go inside. Why did I ever come here?

November 4th: It's 35 degrees. Finally got the ol' air-conditioner fixed
today. It cost $500 and gets the temperature down to 25, but this bloody
humidity makes the house feel like it's about 30. Stupid repairman. I hate
this stupid place.

November 8th: If another wise ar*e cracks, "Hot enough for you today?" I'm
going to strangle him. Bloody heat. By the time I get to work the car's
radiator was boiling over, my clothes are soaking wet, and I smell like
baked cat!!

November 9th: Tried to run some messages after work. Wore shorts, and sat
on the black leather seats in the ol' car. I thought my balls were on
fire. I lost 2 layers of flesh and all the hair on the back of my legs and
my ar*e.
Now my car smells like burnt hair, fried ar*e, and baked cat.

November 10th: The weather report might as well be a bloody recording. Hot
and sunny. Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny. It's been too hot to do anything
for 2 damn months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next
week.
Doesn't it ever rain in this damn place? Water rationing will be next, so
my $2,000 worth of palms just might dry up and blow into the bloody pool.
Even the palms can't live in this heat.

November 14th: Welcome to HELL!!! Temperature got to 38 today. Now the air-
conditioner's gone in my car. The repairman came to fix it and said, "Hot
enough for you today?" My wife had to spend the $2,500 house payment to
bail my ar*e out of jail for assulting the repairman. Bloody Mackay. What
kind of a sick demented idiot would want to live here?

December 1st: WHAT????? This is the first day of Summer???? Ya kiddin
me!!!!

You know you're in Mackay when:-

a.. The best parking space is determined by shade instead of distance.

b.. Hot water comes out of both taps.

c.. You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.

d.. The temperature drops below 35c and you feel a little chilly.

e.. You discover that in February it only takes two fingers to steer your
car.

f.. You discover that you can get sunburnt through your car window.

g.. You develop a fear of metal car door handles.

h.. You break a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30am..

i.. Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end
up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"

j.. You realise that asphalt has a liquid state.

k.. Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to prevent them from
laying hard-boiled eggs.

l.. The cows are giving evaporated milk.

m.. The trees are whistling for the dogs.

n. While walking back barefoot to your car from the beach, you do a
tightrope act on the white lines in the carpark.

o. You catch a cold from having the aircon full blast while you sleep
during the night.

p. You learn that David Jones isn't a department store, its a temple to
worship air-conditioning.

Ha ha.... makes my little whinge seem insignificant

Queen rings me up from Busselton telling me how good air conditioning is

Slept with a wet towel over me during the night, got down to 32 at 6 this morning

Rang the neighbour to come and get his fkn cattle. I can't keep the water up to his stock and mine. But he has problems of his own and has been carting water for seven months.

Only 3 months of this shit to go

fingers crossed for a cyclone or rain of any kind

Reckon I'll get on it if it does.

Back up to 39 yesterday, a low of 29 on my weather station overnight. Nobody slept, 1 bloody mossie was dive bombing my left ear for a few hours. Every one at work was grumpy today.
I know its not as hot as Meekathara (google it) but when it goes from 28 to 38 it really hits me in my Canadian raised body.

39 degrees,......is that all?! Shocked

We are so sick of the 40+C temperatures here, that we have decided to export our heat to Victoria Razz Very Happy

Twisted Evil SUFFER!

Re. the mossie, use an oscilating fan by the bed. yes they are noisy, but they have a cooling effect and blow the mossies away Very Happy

Suffer Babies,

After 26 days over 40 Mother nature has taken pity on the poor scorched earth and sent cyclone (hurricane) Dominic on a direction that covered nearly all the Murchison and down through the great southern of WA.

We received 78mms rain over 4 days, nothing like the Queensland deluges but the ground is that baked it floods. The creek here was a click wide and the water came up to the homestead.

Bloody Magnificent

Change of attitude around the place don't seem to want to strangle anyone any more.

34 now and tropical humidity, but heh the creeks are full, the mossies, march flies and sand flies are out but I think I have my sanity back

The Queens home and smiling thats the main thing

A mans a KING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, we are babies, we had 4 days and all hell broke loose, train tracks buckled, power blackouts, the trees are losing their leaves 3 months early.

Good to hear, breaking a drought always makes a man feel better - oh and the rain helps too Wink

meanwhile - after the heat come - THE ANTS! Not just a few ants, but hundreds, thousands of the little buggers. They attacked from the kitchen window in a mass assault, I caught them in collumn formation marching across the counter, down the bench and across the floor to THE HONEY which the boy left out. I wish I'd taken a piccy of the honey bottle, there was no where to pick it up, just a black writhing mass!

So out came the Borax powder for some chemical warfare. I cut their supply lines first lines, leave the sturm ants till last. Some carpet bombing with RAID spray next, and mopped up the stragglers with a wet rag. There was still some Aufklaur ants scouting around but I left them.

Things were looking good, I think their forcepool was depleted when today they hit the reinforce button and a few fresh battallions came in from the back door to get under the dishwasher (Christ knows whats under there Rolling Eyes ) More off board arty, chemical warfare, and we'll see tomorrow!
