Thanks guys. Thankfully she is only being induced a little early. 39 weeks she was induced at on Monday and now it looks like she will arrive in the next few hours. I currently have a very happy lady, one epidural later!

Our little girls middle name is my sisters first name who I lost in April so she will live on :) My wife wasn’t impressed at fergie or Robyn as name ideas :oops:

Major problems with our power systems.
Melting down everywhere, not designed for such a large load demand.
Remember comments at the end of last summer, suggestions made of a 50% increase in AC sales.
You need a good back up power system Charles.

Back up generator is on standby WHB , more so for the fridge and freezer but I may risk running the new evaporative air conditioner on it if it's too hot . The old one was fine running on the gen , this new one comes with a warning not to . I suppose it is to do with the microprocessor control , I have a pure sine wave Honda that should handle the start up load , that may be OK to use .
Forecast 49'C at Mildura today , I am worried about the farm ,again , the Northerly is a beast ! hot breath straight out of Hell and it's only 9.45 am here .

I was thinking about having my generator on standby for the fridges and air con too. The trouble is that the air con is hard wired in and the generator is only portable behind the MF35.

It getting to where I am wishing for winter again. In winter you can always put on enough cloths to get warm but there no way of getting cool enough to play in the shed these past few weeks.

Things are warming up here as well, they’ve forecast 4 degrees for tomorrow. As for putting on more clothing I dislocated my shoulder yesterday putting my fifth layer on.

I'll agree with that. There is always the possibility of lighting a fire to warm yourself by in winter too, at the moment I don't even dare look at the angle grinder for fear of starting a fire.

Sounds like Grunt has done himself an injury pulling the blankets up.
