    Victoria, Australia is going up in flames whilst their neighbours to the north in Queensland are getting flooded.

    The eastern areas here in New Zealand on the South Island and the Hawkes Bay region on the North Island are getting a bit crispy as well. The same weather system that brought the phenomenal heat wave to Aussie has crossed the Tasman andis now descending on our less than green patch and it looks to be toasty here for a day. Showers are predicted for later, fingers crossed.

      neighbors say global warming is just a political stunt to make money and destroy capitalism, so surely Al Gore's magic weather generating machine will run out of whatever powers it...

      Stay safe, keep sane. I'd invite you to find refuge here in the States, but you know better. The Outback has got to be safer than any space between right and left in this tragic land.

      George Orwell is banging on the lid of his coffin and screaming, "1984 was a cautionary tale, you dolts, not a motivational speech!"
