Hot Air

Hot summer days in Naarm (Melbourne, Australia) are often accompanied by an oppressive hot north wind.

Often, the wind changes direction in the mid or later afternoon, and the heat is broken by a lovely cool sea breeze.

If the change doesn’t come you’re in for a hot, uncomfortable, sleepless night and, almost certainly, a stinking hot tomorrow.

faded Australian flag –
no cool breeze today. 🌵
