Monday was so wet - we got the entire summer's average rainfall in one day!! Still it took the weather bureau five days of predicting thunderstorms before one of em hit!! Now we are back to steaming again as we head to 38C later in the week.

Wart, sounds like our forecast for tomorrow minus the snow...

Bilby, could you please send your weather forecasters to the eastern states, I would love for ours to be wrong for the next five days.

Oh well, better go and oil up the spikes on the umbrella again!!

Icy cold. My poor ancient doggy is having asthma problems whenever she goes out. I think today's high was 7 -- not including wind chill, which brought it to something like -20. It's been rough. I live in a small town, and the hottest hint is where to find salt or de-icer.

Hey Cath, we get Foxtel weather reports from the East as well as the local BOM reports! They both agree!! There was a guy on the radio last week who predicts the weather by the moon. He was closer than either of the others but still not right!! LOL Stupid thing is in Perth, cos we don't see the rain very often, and esp not for extended pours, we can't drive in the rain!! Normally Perth's rain only lasts 10 to 20 mins in a hit - you know starts to rain, no brolly, so you shelter in a shop for a few minutes and then you can go on your merry way again until it starts again, when you are either at your car or destination or you repeat the process!! This went on for hours and we just stop a la Narnia style post Winter Queen! As to the forecasters, they get it right sometimes like summer - "ooh, think it might be hot and sunny" or winter - "expect some showers". LOL

More sunshine, can you believe it! Sun forecasted for the entire day again! It's a very chilly morning, 37F but absolutely gorgeous! Perfect for my morning yoga!! :)

Redkitty, I have decided enough of the rain and I am going to move to Britain, sounds like you have gotten more sunshine in one week than we have all summer. Flood warnings and high volume of rain, ....again for Wednesday.
