Skite Bilby....

Very humid, very stormy and about 25 degrees celsius with rain on the way until next Monday. Didn't you have about 37 degrees today, Bilby? At least we are not in flooded Rockhampton.

Did any of you ever read the O.E. Rolvagg's classic "Giants in the Earth"? You would probably not have picked it yourself but it was required reading in an English/literature class. Anyway in a nutshell it's about an immigrant family who try and make a life on the American prairie and how the wife slowly goes insane from the constant blowing of the wind on the flat prairie. Guess what? I wished that I could have some chai (tea) with her and swap stories. I don't think that there is a lot of difference between a prairie and the steppes of K. I'm going nuts with this constant blowing of the wind and whistling through the closets (air vents). It's cold, gray, and the winds keep blowing nonstop. The satellite TV guy came yesterday and replaced the cable that probably blew away to Uzbekhstan. Maybe this should be on the vent post. :) and let's see Houston is in the 80's???

Yeah 37 or 38. At some point, I stop caring about the facts and just say "hot" a lot!!

It was so mild for the week or two before this week, so I reckon this is the last real go of heat for the summer. Odd day after this period but then we will be into Autumn!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!

16 degrees, just starting to snow, supposed to have about 2 inches. Not a very snowy year here, I guess Wart has been stealing it all. :)
