    Bit of fun yesterday evening and then into the night with persistent showers rolling across me. 5mm in the gauge, better than a slap in the balls.

    Yeah me too, but it looks like no damage to the neighbourhood and I dont have overhead powerlines so no issues there.

    I'm out at the RAAF base for a graduation. And parade. Had a couple of flyovers and three of the poor blokes on parade passed out in the heat.

    Played golf at Little Bay last Thursday. Was just farking disgusting till about 11am. low thirties and high humidity with clothing sticking all over the place.

    Then at 11am the westerly kicked in proper and drove that sticky shit away. Was so much better with higher temps and lower humidity. Just like home.

    Drier hotter air for the win on days like this.

    It hasn't been that bad in the gong today.
    Even though the NW got up, it was fighting a sea breeze on and off.
    Was 35 on my ride... that sucked.
    now 26.9.
    no wind.
    Brisbane like.

    I wasn't doing too badly. The body adapts very quickly to hot conditions if you let it.

    A few on the course looked like they were struggling though.

    Its the most interesting and iconic course I reckon, but the upkeep and green care doesn't look comparable.
    (much like royal melbourne ) :) ;)
