Katie, I really feel for you. Going from one total extreme to the other. Must be frightening.

Bilby, we are supposed to get massive rainfalls today but that remains to be seen, dog paddling is fine, the man next door has a boat and believe you me in June last year it was used to ferry all of us to high ground two streets away and was moored to a telegraph pole!

This is us for today and tomorrow -

Wednesday
Few showers developing
Min 19C Max 23C


Thursday
Shower or two
Min 18C Max 22C

Yep, yep, yep.

They have just lowered our predicted forecast for the rest of the week (thankfully!!). They had been saying it would reach 39C on Sunday but have now lowered it to a much more palatable 31C. They did that just after our local AFL (Aussie Rules) footy teams had agreed to a later start to their derby to avoid the heat!! Go figure! (This is a major event in Perth even though it is only a pre-season cup match. We only have two teams in the national comp (which only really involves three states but they relocate teams to non-AFL states to make it more national) and there is a very strong rivalry between the fans.)

Anyway, I am just glad I won't be frying on the weekend.

this morning 2-13-08 every thing is ice, poor birds can't get the food , the feeders are covered in ice and it is still freezing rain/sleet. I wonder if the big brown truck will arrive with my food grinder today .

Thanks to Tropical Cyclone Nicholas in the NorthWest of WA, our hot temps have been banished and we are anticipating a week of mid to late 20'sC. Bit humid but better cool sun and humid then hot sun and humid! And the Freo Doctor (the seabreeze) has come in for the afternoon and made its way all the way up to the foothills where I live. Yay!!!
