RE: How to handle a heatwave.
Oh yeah, that is indeed hot and I am glad that you know what I am talking about.
I edited the post today with news in that some areas in Australia have equaled a 62 year old record with 52,7C temperatures. So yes, hot is hot and one just have to survive.
Thank you for the advice and we have the misters here at some restaurants, but I think that they will be too expensive for us. It's not a thing that we can see at people's homes here. I will have a look at the prices.
Swamp coolers are new to me and no idea, but I will ask Mrs. Google as it sounds interesting and I have to keep our PC'S cool in the study. We have a little fan, but it only circulates hot air.
Our summer was at about 4 moths, but lately it has stayed hot into 6 months. We are situated with the Atlantic ocean at the west and the Indian ocean at the right and that's why we are known worldwide as "The Cape of Storms". This place is the graveyard of many ships along our coastlines. We are also known to have all 4 seasons in one day.
So yes it's a tricky, but beautiful place to live.
Yes thank you and you are right and the squirrels like to tease us.
Cheers and !BEER
