    Had about 5-10mm in the Lower Mtns which was welcome. Humid as this morning though. Should see some storms kicking off in the next few hours up your way.

    Watching a purple and orange sunset lighting up the bottom of a CuNim, with lightning forking across the sky. Impossible to take a photo, but oh wow.

    In the Blue Mtns, NSW.

    what's with the flys - they came just after winter ended and then vanished - but have now returned something bad.

    No more than a dusting - but this type of weather system should do slightly more than settle the dust out that way (despite what models say)

    If there's a heatwave on the way and PG doesnt come in and tell us we're all going to melt because we're earth-killing fossil-fuel burning captialists, does it actually even happen?

    That's called spring and Autumn here.

    Loving the after sunset temps here at the moment. Shorts and t-shirt and beer time. Pools and river have been used almost daily also.

    Ugh..I hate the first hot day of summer. It's debilitating.

    Thankfully you become acclimatised rather quickly.

    what if they are coming from up North? Then left would be out to sea......

    Perhaps West moving would be the better description.
