Another heat wave this week....its gorgeous in the city today but a big muggy. Its about 82F and just a little breezy. Supposed to be super warm all week but not the best air quality.

Did the wash today, and hung on the lines outside, but the humidity played heck on getting the wash to dry! Too sticky and not one breeze! Temperature wasn't too bad at 79* though!

Oh well, I'll pull in the damp items and put them out to dry tomorrow!

Hate to use the dryer, when I can save energy and reduce the fuel costs! Oh well, can't win em all!

It's been raining for days, some roads and rivers are flooding with quite a bit of structural damage in places. I can't remember the last time it rained so much in Cape Town. Fortunately they say the rain is going to stop on Thursday. It's a freezing 13C today which is very cold for us.

humid, rain sometimes, a threat of thunderstorms this arvo and the same tomorrow. ATM it is a bit sunny so we will take advantage of this sunshine for today to go shopping for a canopy for our camping trip to Oshkosh at the end of this month.

Well, its rained, heavily and constantly for five days, the forecast shows no relent. so wet I'm not even bothering to ride, the roads ar dangerous, off road too wet, and I have no artificial surface near the summer grazing. It The crops are starting to rot in by neighbouring farmrs fields, the hay crop will be very heavily damaged. all this does not bode well with the prices of basic grains and both human and animal foods so high, for the second year in a row.
