Heatwave

Posted Tuesday, February 3, 2009, 4:26 PM


We just had the hottest and longest heatwave in Melbourne's recorded history, with three days of over 43°C temperatures, and overnight lows of over 27°C.

It sucked.

I couldn't really concentrate on anything for any length of time, I couldn't sit still, I was sweating and overheating. Because my apartment doesn't have air conditioning, all I had were my electric fans, but they just pushed hot air around so didn't do that much. So because my head was completely full of cotton wool for the whole week, I just spent it doing nothing much beyond finding new ways to cool myself down.

So it's a bit crap that I have to find a new place to live, that I was told we've been denied permission to use the main location we'd sourced for my short film, and that I wanted to write a treatment for a new script, but couldn't sit down long enough to concentrate.

Big stupid waste of a week.
