Rain, beautiful rain

We have previously had some short term intermittent relief from the very hot, very humid weather, but we have now had some quite heavy (by non tropical standards) rain in the last few days. I am talking around 300mm since Thursday, with most of it from late pm Friday until this morning.

There has also been a tropical low weather watch giving us a timely reminder of where we live. It was the carrier of the rain and it then moved on towards the WA coast and has beeen named a cyclone - Laurence - the first one for the season.

The temperature dropped, the breeze turned up the pace and with the rain, the weather has been reasonably pleasant.

One of my mates of the cartoon world can add some humour to the situation ... it is just as well we have the Bureau of Metereology website to warn us to pack our umbrellas!

Thank you Swamp.

How different it is! Here the temperature just manages to creep up to freezing point during the day in some fairly dry air lit up by a strong winter sun.

Oh yes, we live in a crazy place. Now Clclone Laurence has headed off to give WA some attention and our weather is warming up again ... ho hum
