Today officially ended up getting to 46.4 in Melbourne. That's 115.5 for those still on Fahrenheit and way, way too hot no matter what you measure it in.
So we headed off to see a movie. Took a while to park. No-one seemed to want to park anywhere that wasn't under cover. No big surprise there.
We ended up seeing "Gran Tourino", the Clint Eastwood movie. He was actor, producer and director. What an excellent piece of work from him. Clint is a grizzly old Korean War veteran who used to work in the Ford plant in Detroit. His world isn't what he'd imagined it would be. His relationship with the Asian neighbours made for a great story. I won't spoil the plot by telling you anything too much about it but we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Not affected by any of the fires, I hope? It's been pretty horrible watching the whole thing on the news…
Yep, we're doing ok in Melbourne thanks. The rest of the state isn't doing so well though. http://www.smh.com.au/news/national/many-good-people-lie-dead/2009/02/09/1234027889048.html
Many areas have been drought affected for quite a while. The combination of tinder-dry vegetation, super-high temperatures and gale force winds was just way too potent.
