I know I have chosen to reside in an area well known for it's extreme heat but this is getting tiresome. We have not had a day in the last 6 weeks when the temperature has been less than 40 degrees Celsius with it usually hovering in the mid 40's and topped out at 49 degrees the other day. No rain to speak of, it does look promising every few days with the clouds building up in the afternoon to see some small isolated showers skirt around us. To smell the rain but not to feel it is torture!
I still manage a 5 klm walk each morning up and down the look-out hill, or 1 tank hill, as it's known locally for obvious reasons if you saw it. This walk, by necessity, is taken as early as possible in order to escape the high temperatures but still manages to raise quite a sweat before work.
