What a day!!!

We managed to get through a 45 degree day today without any major hassles. Going around the chook sheds collecting eggs, spraying water and putting ice blocks in the hens' water kept everything on an even keel.
We also had to ensure that the dogs had plenty of water and shade - because they are more suseptible to heat problems than the chickens.
But a cool change went through at around 5 o'clock and the temperature dropped 15 degrees in as many minutes.
Thankfully we had no clowns out in the bush lighting fires - unlike other parts of Victoria. The Strzeleckis are burning again today and if the fire-lighter is grabbed by the right people ...........
