Just sharing ...............
Higgins Storm Chasing has great information on this Dangerous Heat Stress Alert SEQLD & most of QLD
PS. This is for people, not chickens because I know that while we are super vigilant in making sure our chickens are as cool as possible, we may forget about ourselves:
That's great info Teila. I was wondering about posting something like that after Satay mentioned her temps. I hope you both & anyone else experiencing these hellish conditions without aircon stay safe. I'd be hanging out at my local library if we didn't have aircon at home. The Redcliff one has a coffee shop too I think... or at least a balcony where you can have a cup of tea and the North Lakes one has an area with sofas where you can also have a cup of tea. They both have some undercover parking in case there is hail. I may have done this to have a change of scenery when I've been doing a lot of writing.
I had the pleasure of watching large hails stones rocochet off my neighbours fence & hit my windows yesterday just as I was supposed to be leaving for a parents information evening. I've been in one hail storm in a car here & never again!
My chooks also seem to be doing ok in the heat, thank goodness. They had frozen peas in their water & that was it.
