It reached 35 degrees in Mount Gambier, 37 degrees in Adelaide and is still 40 in Melbourne.
(That’s 104 degrees for you fahrenheit folk.)
(It’s only 32 in Darwin, must be having a cold snap.)
Anyway, what better way to spend ten minutes that watching two Eskimos build an igloo.
Among the facts I did not know: all the snow blocks are carved from within the footprint of the igloo; the block wall is a continuous spiral, not concentric circles; and right-handed people place the new blocks along the wall in an anti-clockwise direction, while left-handers build in the opposite direction.
