I heard on NPR this am that certain areas of Australia were also 
suffering from floods
which was leading to reports like this:
Residents in northern Australia have been warned to beware large 
crocodiles and snakes as floods sweep the area.

Three sightings of a large crocodile have been reported near Normanton, 

Officials suggested the floods have swept the animals out of rivers and 
into urban areas.

About two-thirds of the state has been declared a disaster zone, 17 
rivers are in flood and scores of homes inundated and there is havoc on 
many roads.

So maybe cold drinks and recipes for crocs and large snakes too.

drinks and served-cold and no-cook recipes is actually the theme for the 
local (Melbourne) Cooks' Guild meeting tomorrow, so this is very timely 
for me!
All suggestions appreciated. You know it's hot when the koalas start 
looking for a drink - usually they pretty much don't drink at all, 
getting all their moisture from leaves.

I was in Adelaide last week, and it was nearly 46degC (115degF). Melbourne only got 45degC...
