Crikey, I've only just seen footage of the aftermath of the Bundaberg floods. Lordy, houses swept off their stumps. Shocked

Time for some decent flood protection, one would think.

We didn't get any snow at all. Just icy windscreens. I wanted my grandchildren to see snow for the first time. 😢
Really sunny and warm now. 12 degrees yesterday.

Freezing cold at night but clear sunny days for the last few days, almost Spring like. Makes you feel like we've turned the corner then they forecast snow again. The gits!

still 'hot as' over this side ... 30+ in Tassie on several days recently, and neither of the big fires are quite 'out' ... more hot weather forecast for the weekend on ABC this am.

We did get some rain yesterday am - which was very welcome. A thunderstorm really, not at Queensland standards, but as good as we get down here.

The superintendant from Lost Farm told me the other week that they are pumping 2 megalitres a day into the course. To put that into some perspective, the primary on course dam at RQ holds 3 megalitres.

Some interesting weather about at the moment. The Cyclone near FiJi caused one of the worlds biggest cruise ships to make an unscheduled stop in Hobart.
