Just curious where people will head this longweekend. In SA we have a 3 dayer, as do Tassie. Not sure about other states.

We heading to Murray Bridge tomorrow to take the boat for a spin. Normally would head up to our shack for the whole weekend but not this time as we cant use our boat ramp because of the low water level.

Anyway, enjoy your days off.

G'day SA,
From a Sand Groper who lived in Adelaide half his life, then moved to Sydney a decade ago ..half your bloody luck mate!
In Sinney there are so many people that original ideas are few and far between. Long weekends are best spent at home, watching the TV news reports about traffic jams on the freeways.
Fortunately these days our kids have all finished school, so when we go away it's during the week when there's only a few thousand others out there quietly getting away.
Say G'day to mannum for me, we used to keep our boat down there. Jeez I miss the Murray!

G'day Louie,

Well, we came over from Victoria to Adelaide to visit the "grandkids".... Not sure what we're doing today but it's a gorgeous, sunny day.

..with a forecast maximum of 40 degrees. The sixth straight day with a recorded maximum over 35 degrees. The next six days are also expected to be high 30's into 40. Not bad for a 'sunny day' but I guess that for a visitor from Victoria is quite a change to see some sunshine. Enjoy your stay, I like to get over there every once in a while. It's a pleasant change from smoke, smog and heavy traffic.

DIO,

Is there a note of sarcasm there about Victorians???

You don't seem to realise that many parts of Victoria actually do experience hot weather?? The Mallee, where I come from, has long stretches of extreme heat during summer and early autumn. This is nothing new to us and we won't wilt away in the heat.

What is a novelty for us is the ocean which I can see from the window as I type this. It's looking beautiful.

Thanks for hoping we enjoy our stay.
