In one Australia town, it’s too hot even to pump gasoline

How hot is it in Australia? (Besides that “so hot that heat maps had to add a color” thing.) From News.com.au:

It was so hot in the South Australian outback town of Oodnadatta yesterday that the local servo stopped selling petrol.

The Outback town has been sweltering through one of its great heatwaves with the temperature soaring above 40 degrees every day this year, reaching a peak of 48.2 degrees yesterday. …

[Pink Roadhouse owner Lynnie] Plate said the Roadhouse couldn’t serve unleaded fuel after midday because it was vapourising and wouldn’t pump in the extreme heat.

48.2 degrees Celsius is about 119 Fahrenheit, by the way. Warm.

And Oodnadatta had it good. In other parts of the country, wildfires burned out of control.

Yeah but it's a dry heat.

They have some nasty things going on over there. That is hot. Doesn't Phoenix get temps close to that too?

I think the hottest I've seen Phx get was was about 118. I used to ride my bike for several miles during the summer in temps like that. Australia's got nothing on us.

it gets that hot just outside of Wichita Falls, TX, also.

But it's a dry heat - I've no idea if they stop pumping gas, or no.

Philippines is still north of the equator.

Latitude of Philippines: 13º00´ North of the Equator

Longitude of Philippines: 122º00´ East of Greenwich

Latitude and longitude of Australia is 27 degrees 00' S and 133 degrees 00' E.

You also said they were landlocked too. Remember? :devil: :devil:

LOL I do remember that. Of course what I meant was they don't have enough land.. Just picking at patriot I knew what he meant.

The weather there is similar to the weather here, in July. That was the point.
