It hasn't rained in this neck of the woods for 32 days. Heaps of sunshine blue skies scorching heat and Bush fires have been the order of things, then the change came last evening with a brisk south easterly wind bringing relief, although the wind was not helping the people in Victoria 1000 kilometers in the south of OZ where enormous cost in lives and property has devastated the state.
This morning arrived with overcast skies and and a few bright patches later, however, the wind had dropped to light airs but cool enough for me to decide to wash the car and water the garden and plant a few seeds(Now the Cats have departed).
I haven't had my usual siesta to day - far too busy with chores one cannot do when the temperature becomes oppressive, ( Never mind Tim , you won't need the Air/Con now).
At ten thirty PM, finished suffering a rerun of Indiana Jones 4 on Fox, #1 Son announces "Dad its pissing down outside and I can hear thunder", I told him it was the best place to rain and was not surprised we didn't hear thunder due to the movie.
That just about covers all the excitement for today, I'll check the Lotto results then I'll be off to bed. sweet repose, Vest.
