Beautiful evening here, but we sure have had some good rains lately! Flooding on the burn scars from last year and this year. Terrible flooding actually. My flowers are loving the weather and I ate some of my cucumbers tonight.

Gee chopper, I remember when you needed rain desperately. I saw the pictures on the TV. Horrible.

You are right, and we still need it, but the fires just made it so the flooding is so bad. So sad. Out where I am we are still grateful for the rain, and can use all we can get.

It will be Spring soon? Why, you've barely had something lots of us would consider winter Kylie! How are summers? Hot, or pleasantly warm? If you don't have hot summers I'm going to start thinking of your town/city as the San Diego of the southern hemisphere - I've heard their weather is nearly perfect most of the time.

I'm sure we will have warm weather again this year. I saw the 7-day weather report. It was the colored leaf before Labor Day that threw me for a loop. It happens every year, but I'm never expecting that first one.

I cant stand Summer here, too hot and last for longer than they should!

Spring is perfect, Winter is cold, Autumn is lovely and Summer is stinking hot and suxs

Ah, summers are my least favorite month too. I hope you at least have air conditioning of some sort.

Oh yes, you would have to be mad to live in Australia and not have air conditioning

We have evaporative ducted air conditioning throughout the whole house and also a big split system in the lounge room that does all the large lounge are and the kitchen...we use that on muggy, humid days as the evaporative only works effectively on the dry hot days, which we normally have

Summer is meant to be only 3 months long...it always seems to go for at least 4.5 months grrrrrrr
