We’ve all heard the reports... This weekend is gonna be HAWWWTT!!! We’re looking at 40 degrees plus for the whole three days. It’s safe to say we are going to be relying on our air cons like they are oxygen to our brains. BUT… Now we’re hearing there are fears there will be so much pressure on power boards, that we could lose power AUSTRALIA-WIDE!!! #FML
Rest assured, if this devastating threat does break out, we’ve got you covered!
Here are 10 places you can go to get cool.
- Hit 104.7. Perks of working at a radio station, we legally have to be able to broadcast 24 hours a day. Not sure how many extras we can take in the building, but hey, we’ve got the facilities.
- BARS at Big Hotels. There aren’t a whole lot of places in civic that can guarantee electricity all night long in the case of a blackout, but, go get a cool drink/s at the bar inside QT Hotel, Hotel Realm, and the Hyatt.
- Shopping Centres. Head down to Belconnen Mall/The Canberra Centre (whichever you prefer) and use some retail therapy to get through the heat. ‘Sorry credit card, ‘I HAD TO’ buy all those clothes in order to survive.’
- Like you didn’t need an excuse to sit down all weekend when it’s this hot, go check out Lion for some tears, or 50 Shades Darker for some spice.
- Parliament House. That’s right go annoy some politicians. Extra points if you get a selfie with Malcolm.
- BIG Splash. Okay this is my fav, you get to keep cool and ride some slides at the same time. #innerchildhello
- Various Canberra Galleries… The only time you’ll ever choose to go look at art from 500 years ago on your weekend. There’s a first time for everything!
- Go chill with the air hostesses and watch the planes go by. Maybe you’ll get lucky and sneak on to a jet without a plane ticket.
- Fridge of your local liquor store. Don’t bring the liquor to the BBQ, bring the BBQ there!! ‘Oops, I accidentally fell asleep on the carton’.
- Holiday to Antarctica. In other words, it’s impossible to escape the heat this weekend. Just get out of here and avoid it while you can!
