One expects a hot August night in the northern summer, but it should be a cool July night here!
It just ain't so.......
The past three nights have seen three of the hottest July nights on record for Darwin. Friday night equalled the previous hottest minimum for July of 25C, followed by Saturday night with a new record of 25.8C as the hottest minimum for July. But wait, that is not all.........last night was an even hotter night with a minimum temperature of 26.6C. Yes............that is the mimimum temperature, not yesterdays maximum.
It was 29C in the office as I opened the door this morning around 0800.
At least we have been sitting up at night watching the Tour de France on TV, not getting off to bed. But last night it was around 30C at 0100 this morning, and we decided...............the air conditioner got a run, after really crappy sleeping nights over the past few nights!
So we had a resonable sleep.
But an air conditioner for night time use in July????? That is crazy!
