    Lock him in a small sedan, in the sun for a while.

    My smartest hound was complaining the other day and it was only 31. Hopped off the ute, took up residence in the shade under a nearby caravan and refused to come out unless it involved airconditioning!! And he's supposed to be a working dog?

    Was trying to rain, but could only manage a few spits, not even enough to wet the ground completely.
    Heavy drops though

    Plenty of juice in there for some storms to build.
    Perfect direction for the Mt Macedon force field for the CBD and SE burbs, so not expecting much at all today

    I think it will swing around to the SW by 3pm.
    I can't see much action today. Perhaps a shower or two later tonight.
