**** EXTRAORDINARY DEADLY HEAT (POSSIBLE RECORD BREAKING IN PARTS) NOT SEEN SINCE BLACK SATURDAY TO INVADE SA, VICTORIA, NSW & QUEENSLAND FROM WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 8TH TIL MONDAY FEBRUARY 13TH ****
PLEASE SHARE/TAG THIS POST WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY OR ANYONE YOU KNOW IN THESE REGIONS
Good morning everyone, it looks like the final piece of the jigsaw puzzle is coming together with a bang as the set is scene for extraordinary heatwave to impact large parts of south eastern and eastern Australia between now and the weekend.
All of SA, VIC, NSW and most of Queensland will be impacted by this heat.. Already parts of QLD and NSW have been for weeks!
Parts of SA, north western Victoria, inland regions of NSW and southern inland of QLD is likely to see temps soar as high as 47c! Especially Thursday to Sunday period.
Coastal areas of SA and Victoria will not be hit as hard with this heat but will still be hot, Tasmania once again will mostly miss this extreme heat.
It is likely Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane will all see this heat.. Adelaide is likely to see temps well into the low 40's, Melbourne should nudge 40c Thursday, ACT may see temps reach 40c by end of the week which is rare in itself, Sydney especially western suburbs may see temps reach 46c-47c during the weekend!!
Fires will also become a MAJOR CONCERN especially through NSW and south east QLD during the weekend although some of the rain which eastern NSW will see next two days will reduce the risk slightly, recent rains in SA and Victoria will also keep the risk much lower of disastrous fires.
The good news the pattern is finally about to change.. This intense and ongoing heatwave for some people will come to an end early next week for large parts of south eastern and eastern Australia as large parts of this intense heat gets flushed out by a strong cold front introducing milder air through large parts of south eastern Australia.
Please remember to take precautions with this extreme heat!!
- Keep all fluids up - Don't do any strenuous activity - Keep out of direct sunlight - Keep an eye on pets, children, elderly and the sick.

**** POTENTIAL MOST DANGEROUS WEATHER SYSTEM OF THE YEAR MAY IMPACT SOUTHERN/SOUTH EASTERN AUSTRALIA NEXT WEEK WITH HEAVY RAIN, FLOODING IN PARTS AND DANGEROUS WINDS!! (5 to 6 days time) ****
**** PLEASE SHARE/TAG THIS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT WARNING/INFORMATION AS THIS SYSTEM HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE VERY DANGEROUS ****
- This system (System no 7 as we named it a few days ago) has the energy and power to be equivalent to a category one possibly even a category two.. Due to the low pressure and powerful damaging possibly destructive winds.
- A very strong front and trough will combine to bring rain some heavy in parts along with thunderstorms (some severe) over south eastern and eastern Australia
- The rain may produce further flooding in parts of Victoria, SA, TAS, inland NSW, Southern QLD may also see flooding conditions worsen.
- A low will develop in response to the strong cold front and "BOMB" in the Bight with extreme low pressure, Most models now show are very similar scenario with the low expected to deepen between 970-980hPa at its peak!
- A low this deep is likely to result in widespread damage! Flooding along the coast. coastal erosion parts of SA and VIC & possibly Tasmania as well as damaging/destructive winds with 125km/h+ wind gusts near the low, heavy rain also near the low as it wraps around.
Please guys regardless if this system happens to this strength or ends up being weaker we need to let people know of the POTENTIAL DANGER if it develops exactly like this or even remotely close to how the models suggest.
Any low this large and this deep at 985hPa or below can cause widespread dangerous weather.

There is a common theme here... We will keep a very close eye and regular updates next few days.
Rumi had a three minute nap and so has thrown himself around the house in a psychopathic state ever since.
My period STILL hasn't come, its a week late, I did a pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative thank god. I still have #vasectomyfail fears that won't go away until my period joins us and releases me from my human hating state.
Billie-Violet has unsuccessfully pleaded her case for another day off school, to no avail, I'm a shit mum.
Snow needs a straight jacket because I didn't let her put her head in the toilet.
I was angry at Bill coz I had a dream that he fucked someone else, turns out he had the exact same dream. #stillangry
Took the kids to the beach even thought it's minus 4 million degrees, we needed fresh air.
All was fine until...
Arlo ran over to me screaming and crying that his head hurt, I asked him where he banged it and he replied that he didn't, the bangs come from inside, on his brain..
Freaked the fuck out, piled everyone in the car and straight to the doctors, worried sick for my little ninja.
Shaking in the doctors surgery he checked my boy out, tells me he's fine and these things sometimes just happen to kids...
I'm still keeping a close eye on him.
But I'm also keeping a very close eye on me. Sometimes when I'm knee deep in nappies and my husbands as useful as a spare dick and my kids are acting like little Joffreys I lose sight of the bigger picture.
"To anyone who thinks that working mums have it all together. Ummm no...... I have just arrived home at 5.10pm. I woke up with my 3 year old at 4.30am, got kids ready, went to childcare, drove an hour in traffic and started work at 8am - in a normal job, nothing glamorous or exciting. I still have to do baths, make dinner and make a slice for work tomorrow who are having a 'fun' morning tea.
Mr 3 (who is happy to see me) has spent the last 15 minutes asking Why? Why?How? Why? About various things. This is cute but I am super tired. Miss one is upset and tired/hungry because daylight savings threw her out of routine.
My car is dirty.....filthy dirty. Filled with toys, juice boxes, lolly wrappers, red bull cans and way too many sultanas to even bother cleaning.
I have shopping on the passenger seat that I quickly grabbed at lunch time, schlepped to the office and finally back to my car 😩 it may appear that working mums have it together but we are really all just running around, muddling through and trying to make it all work, so no one is let down or left out 😪😪😪😪 I am grateful for my family and my job but it's not easy." #TMS7
Two farmers are being hailed as heroes after they risked their own lives to save two dogs stranded on the roof of a car after it was swept away in Victorian floodwaters.
Despite the authorities deeming it too dangerous to attempt a rescue before nightfall, Chris Sewell and Benny Dyer weren’t going to risk seeing the dogs being swept away. They used a borrowed tinny as well as some gentle words of persuasion to coax “Blue” and “Red” from the car roof and into the boat. Their owner, Herbert Bettels, who survived being swept 2km downstream was understandably touched that the men hadn’t given up on his two dogs like so many others had.
The inspiring efforts of these two men have ensured they’ve earned themselves a lifetime supply of free beers from Herbert and most importantly, best friends status from his two very grateful dogs…
Five years ago, when Connie told me she wanted to go public I warned her. The thing about dirty laundry is, there's no middle. You either shut the fuck up or you go all the way. I was scared. How could going through all this cancer business publicly possibly help our family? I told her in the strongest possible terms - this is a can you can't un-open. But leaders are fearless. She acknowledged my reservations and ploughed forth. I'm so glad she did.
Since Connie took the front foot our entire extended family have devoted their time, energy, acumen and money to Love Your Sister. In real dollar terms, my family have invested 250K at a bare minimum and that's a pittance of the true value they've provided. This really is a family run operation. Brothers, sisters, 2 cousins and an adopted stray.
I sit here now, five years later, so thoroughly stunned by how my family have chosen to deal with Connie's illness. Me and Connie cop the kudos, but there's so much more. We are in fact the boring ones in our family! True!
So, to celebrate our village numbers swelling to an astonishing 350,000, I'd like to say fuck it, and lift the curtain further on the Johnson clan because life's too bloody short.
This is a picture from a paper in the 70's, featuring my dad holding my sister Hilde, while mum makes coin shooting pool. My mum was one of the first women to go and shark the fellas in men-only bars. My dad was stay at home before the term was coined. And mum and dad were both bi-sexual. Looking back, I suppose we were fairly progressive. I like to think we still are.
Mum and dad have both had their time here and I can only imagine what they might make of all this Love Your Sister nonsense.
My sister Connie is fighting the cancer in her back in the Canberra Hospital tonight. My other sister Hilde (pictured with dad) is probably on her way home from another demanding 12 hour shift as a P.O. And I'm sitting in my bush shack staring at old clippings and realising how fucking lucky I am. We're mostly dead and half on our knees, but I'll be fucked if this family hasn't epitomised what family should be. Out and fucking proud.
Needless to say, Love Your Sister proudly supports gender equality and free love for all. Hurry up government people, we were on to this shit decades ago.
"A rainbow is a promise of sunshine after rain of calm after storms of joy after sadness of peace after pain of love after loss.
A rainbow baby is a baby born following loss. These mommas are just 6 out of the millions that experience pregnancy/infant loss every day. Some speak out. Some stay silent. Some have lost many. Some try for months or years. Some meet their sleeping angels. All loved and never forgotten.❤️💛💚💙💜"
