Panic!

At the moment there seems to be a bit of a panic in Victoria. Ever since Black Saturday on February 7th it seems that every time the weather is predicted to be a little hot or a little windy we get multiple warnings that death and destruction are on the way.

Last Friday the weather was meant to reach 38 yet it only got to 34. It only reached that temperature at around 3pm, as for most of the day the temperature hovered around the 28 degree mark. This was meant to be the day we saw the most extreme temperatures since Black Saturday yet they never materialised. On Friday a number of schools and kindergartens and businesses were closed because of the warnings. Similarly yesterday we were supposed to get winds of over 100kmh whipping across the state yet the day just seemed a little windier than normal. The head of the emergency services yesterday said that he was not crying wolf over the warnings yet it seems that this is exactly what he has been doing.
