Tom Lawson, a carpenter from North Manly, has been praised by his Facebook friends for letting them know about the 36 degree day sweeping across Sydney.

“Without Tom’s status update, I would have had absolutely no idea that today was a hot day” a friend said.

Despite being a full time carpenter and having no professional qualifications, Tom accurately described the weather saying “It’s f*king hot as sh*t today!” He then decided to bail on work and hit the beach for a surf. When asked what he would do for the rest of the day he said he would “sink a few cold ones and have a long hard tap on the pokies.”
