We’ve had the fire lit all week. Not during the day but each morning and in the evenings, the temperatures have been cool enough to warrant lighting the fire (it’s our sole source of heat and we also cook with its heat and heat our hot water in the absence of the sun so it’s not quite as mad as all that). The crazy thing is that it’s Summer here in Australia and usually February involves days in the 40°C’s (over 100°F) and nights can be in the 20°C’s easily. Not at the moment.
Temperatures have been warm enough during the day although not in the 30’s by any stretch of the imagination and some days haven’t reached 20°C but the nights have been as cold as 2°C last week. Thank goodness we avoided a frost! Brrrr
The worst bit is that I think my fruit trees are a little confused. 😦
At least there haven’t been any frosts. I guess this is going to be the new reality with our climate in disarray. Freaky or unpredictable weather is to be the norm in future I fear. I just hope we don’t get a run of extreme heat to “make up for” the run of cool weather we have had. 😦
