...in New Zealand by the sound of things, but here it's just the start. Spring has arrived! The last few days have been as hot as a New Zealand summer, and we really hope it doesn't get that much hotter here.
The Americans tell us last summer there was a heat wave, and temperatures reached 114* F (45.5*C)!! Onita was travelling to LA, and people couldn't use air conditioning in their cars because their cars were already overheating and breaking down.
Yesterday I went in the swimming pool for the first time. It wasn't too bad, actually, despite the dire warnings from the other interns that it was "always freezing" - and besides, there are two spas to warm up in afterwards.
Last night it was 80* F (27* C) in our house... too hot to sleep.
