Longtime readers of this blog will know that the Weather Obsession gene runs long and strong in my family. Currently, however, it seems that the whole country has been swept up in the thrill of the forecast – or, if the number of “gosh, it’s hot” tweets, “how hot is it?” conversations at the supermarket, and “look, I’m frying an egg on the driveway” images filling up my Facebook newsfeed are anything to go by.
In honour of the heatwave sweeping Australia, and the fact that, if only for this week, everyone has become a member of my family, I bring you my collection of weather-related posts.
I know what you’re thinking – so many. The worst part? That’s not even all of them.
Clearly I inherited that genetic thing after all.
Have you had umpteen conversations about the weather this week?
