@margo,
Strange how it never rains on the catchment areas, isn't it? Confused

Damn. It's stopped raining.
It's spring. It's still quite chilly (though the sun is shining).
And those bloody relentless winds (brrrrrr!) of the past week have dried up the (dampish for a change) soil something awful.

Sad

@msolga,
It has rained here all summer long in northeast Florida, more rain than I can remember for at least 15 years & clouds, clouds, clouds - this must be a record year for a preponderance of rain and a lack of sunshine over a whole summer in the state of Florida. Is it really spring there? How different that is. I never really thought about how opposite you are from US

@babsatamelia,
Hello babsatamelia

Parts of Australia had heavy rainfall during the past summer, too. And flooding, . Mainly along the eastern coast, though. I live in the south-east. We (& other southern states) have been experiencing drought for years now.
Yes, it's really spring here. I have the hay fever (plus a raging cold! Sad ) to proove it! Today is windy & rather crazy. Things getting blown about outside. And it's the warmest day for ages: 23 C predicted! A heatwave! Wink

@msolga,
See what I mean?:

Brace yourselves: Gale-force winds to buffet state
Dan Bray
September 12, 2008 - 12:47PM/The AGE


Victorians are being warned to brace for wild weather, with gale-force winds set to batter the whole of south-eastern Australia over the weekend and into next week.

- Strong gusts expected
- Dust storms possible
- Little rain likely in drought-affected areas

Northerly gusts of over 100kmh, capable of bringing down trees and damaging crops, are expected to peak on Monday, according to Weatherzone's Tom Saunders.

Dust storms are likely to hit drought-affected areas - but those areas are unlikely to receive much badly needed rainfall.

Most rain is forecast to fall in coastal and mountain areas.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning and recommends people secure loose objects near houses and beware of fallen power lines, in line with with State Emergency Services warnings.

The Bureau has also issued a coastal wind warning for all Victorian coastal areas. Seas may reach over four metres offshore, with coastal swells of over three metres expected in the state's west.

@margo,
I guess I shouldn't talk too loudly!

Today is absolutely magic (especially since I've taken my aunt to the airport!) T-shirt weather and I'm actually wearing shorts around the house - and the back door is wide open to let in a warm breeze. Possum is resting on the outdoor furniture - with his fur ever so slightly ruffled. Picture of serenity!

Yet earlier in the week is was bloody freezing and windy.

But summer's coming!

Melbourne 5:40 pm, Friday, 19th September:
Windy. Bright sunshine. It rained for a bit, now just spitting. Distant thunder is getting closer.

Maybe a bit of hail next? Confused
