With temperatures reaching 125 degrees Fahrenheit in the shade, the heat is so extreme in the Australian town of Coober Pedy, that people have taken to living in homes underground that they call dugouts.

Apparently building a home with air conditioning would be too expensive.

But these aren’t your average caves, some even have swimming pools! Most of the people that live in the area work as miners as Coober Pedy is the world’s largest provider of opal.
