There’s a massive heatwave here in the state of Victoria. I’ve heard it’s been the hottest consecutive days in history, and it’s not cooling down much.
For the past couple of days it’s been above 40°C and people are sweating everywhere. Yesterday I probably drank at least 5 liters of water, which is a lot to me, but it’s probably still not enough to stay hydrated in this heat.
And working at a place without air conditioning makes it feel like working in a sauna all day.
The heat is definitely taking it’s toll on people and the city. Public transport is struggling with thousands of canceled train departures, power outages from heavy air conditioner usage and at least one person suffered some kind of heat induced rage and threw his 4-year old daughter off a tall bridge into the river. With his 2 sons in the car to witness it!
