    I thought there was nothing in the whole middle part of the country anyway, except Ayers Rock, the Olgas and Alice Springs :D

    I had to use Google Translate. Apparently a "chook" is a chicken in Australianese. :)

    Doubling the # and adding 32 will get you close enough.

    Could use some of that weather in the Midwest states. Too cold to go outside. Hibernation may be the only option

    Or use a simple formula-> (C-0)/100 = (F-32)/180. where C and F are the temperature values in Celcius and Fahrenheit scales. When one is known, you can find the other.
    I could never understand how cold kr how hot it was when I lived in US for 6 years and somebody told me the temperature in degree fahrenheit.
    Had to do instant conversion i. my head and reply to keep the conversation going.

    While at uni I had a summer vacation job one year at a mine in the Pilbara (Western Australia) and when my plane landed at Paraburdoo airport the pilot announced on the PA it was 47.5C. Walking off the aircraft really felt like walking into an oven. The thing is, the air is so dry that when you do any physical exertion the perspiration dries as soon as it exits the pores in your skin so when I was working in the red dust it would only stick wherever there was a pore. Everywhere else was too dry for the dust to adhere.

    My ex-wife lived in Exmouth when she was a kid. I visited there ~20 years ago. Very nice area.

    Friends of the family had a sheep station we visited that was inland by about a 90 minute drive. Definitely felt like driving to the middle of nowhere.

    Temps in the region were 115-120 deg F (about 45 degC). It was 'dry heat', and no worse then being around Washington DC in late July/ August when it is 95+ degF + high humidity. In fact, the heat in Western Australia was a refreshing change from what I am used to.
