Yep, very very very hot... ALL THE TIME!!!!
Congratulations to your cousin! Did she have the baby up here?
Karratha is an ok place, the people here are very social and it is really good if you have young kids as there are so many support groups. (Apart from childcare - it's impossible to get!). All the shops put up their prices too (Macdonalds included!) as they think that everyone up here are on good money... but apart from that its pretty good.
We have heard that we will be getting a big cyclone in April (how they can predict that I don't know!
), so I hope you aren't here for that!
Have a good time when you are here!
