Global climate change impacting us, I got to taste the Polar Vortex recently.

What did you think of it, Lenzabi?

Our temps are hovering around -25ish atm.

This is how some animals survive the cold here in the Great White North...

Our WA town of Marble Bar has only had 6 days below 40 since October last year, peaked at 49 last week, and no sign of abating. That's an 80 degrees difference to Kaere!

49!!! Holy Hell and it's probably not an exaggeration!

How do people cope with such temperatures? Is it all "retreat to the A/C!" or does the body simply adapt?

I think people do adapt and just get used to it. I was listening to an interview of some residents and business owners from Marble Bar the other day and they were saying most there don't bother with aircon. More likely to head down to the local pub for an ice cold coldy.

Wow... that's tough people!

Is it particularly dry there - lack of humidity can really help make such high temperatures easier to bear.

It was -37C here this morning, then -27 for a high... there's really no way to adapt, although in some ways you do.

Yeah I was unhappy as I have lost my ability to endure such cold like I could when I was younger.

2300 km long dust cloud..... it's just impossible to comprehend such size... I mean, from Scotland to London it's only 700 km....  Shocked

Nature is, like, all powerful and stuff.

(I've watched a documentary before where scientists attempted to replicate natural phenomena on a small scale, specifically making a boat sink by releasing air bubbles from a lattice framework of pipes on the sea floor underneath it. They eventually managed it but it took all the effort they could put into it - meanwhile natural phenomena have seemingly made it happen with big ships. That's one example, LOL. But nature doesn't do these things by halves!)

We've just had our driest May in fifteen years. Even though there's been some heavy weather round the country, all our capital cities dams are lower on water than what is normal. In Sydney, now at the start of winter, they are putting in water restrictions.

Is there any sense that it may be a wet winter at all, to bring those water levels up?

The eastern states are in for some very wet and rough weather over the next couple of days, but it would need some good long continual wet weather to make much difference I would think. Not out of the question yet though this early in winter.
