Heat is the word.
Summer has kept its full wrath hidden these past few weeks and now it's here with full velocity. Searing heat as red as this flower. It's going to be reaching 40 degrees here all week and talk is all about will our ageing power grid cope with a city hooked on air con?
I can still well remember when the whole city's gas supply went down a few years ago now.
That was during late summer heat and modern civilised life hinged on an electric wok and a plastic solar shower bag.
