Bring Back the Drought

I have a feeling that my record, set 10 years back, of the 18 May as the last day for a dip in the briny for the season won’t be broken this year. 

Last month of autumn and we’re straight into winter.  Not often we see white covering the place but a huge hail storm fixed that.

Some sunny light at the end of the tunnel with a better forecast coming up.

PS.  I’ve been in a good mood for some time hence no final report on my last day of meter reading which will make for good reading.  I’m sure that will change soon.

    I know what it is like to be tired of rain and miss the sun on your back . . . . I feel like that most days. The thing is, your spell of lots of rain will end.

    I am waiting for it to be dry enough for me to mow the lawn.

    Yes, I shouldn’t complain. We usually have far more better weather than bad.

    I was looking at a map of Oz the other day and noticed that NW of you and SE of Alice Springs is an old dried up lake bed. Too bad some of this water couldn’t be stored there for the future. Though that would probably disrupt the operation of some large sheep or cattle station.

    With winter coming on I bet Sammy has his favorite heating vent all staked out.

    How is MP’s leg doing? Is the moon boot off?

    Can hardly wait for your report on the demise of meter reading.

    You probably mean Lake Eyre in South Australia. It fills periodically depending on the amount of monsoonal rain from NT and QLD. It’s partially filled at the moment but is very salty.

    Sammy has two favourite vents staked out. We’ve had the heater on the last few days which is somewhat early.

    MP has been back walking and bike riding for a couple of weeks and just back into her exercise classes this week and her first run this morning with no problems. Yes, the moon boot is history.

    We are finally getting some badly needed rain,unlike most of the country. We have been in extreme fire danger.Dont have to mow the grass as it breaks off when you walk on it.

    Gee, it’s that bad there? Our news is showing the Mississippi in flood along areas we have travelled in the past.

    Give me the quietness of snowfall over that racket anyday…

    We had snowfall in the mountains yesterday and set some records around here for coldest May 15th on record.

    Bring me sunshine. We have a pool to solar heat!!

    A few years back, we used to do the 12 hour round trip up to the mountains of NE Victoria nearly every weekend to XC ski. Some magic moments on that white stuff.

    So you’re having crazy weather too? We had a few spring-like days here in S Ontario but the last week it’s been nothing but rain and cloud and cold winds. And it seems to be bad everywhere. Did you save any of the hailstones in the freezer to be brought out next summer to cool your beer?

    Hailstones in the freezer? Ahh, that’s what those blocks in the plastic tray are.
