Aye. The air is so dry in Sydney at the moment that I'm getting bitten by static electricity here at home as I shuffle about in my joggers.

It's conditions like this where I can see how static charge can ignite a bushfire.

It's amazing how we've gone from wet as fark early in the year to tumbleweeds now.

Rain? I recall the word but can't recall what it means.

Blue skies and 30 in Sydney this weekend.

Hey lets burn some more coal and clear fell a few more forests. Humans with their insatiable greed, ridiculous superstitions and hubris are making parts of the planet close to uninhabitable..

Remarkable how dry it has become so quickly. It was only 3 months ago that we were struggling to open doors (due to moisture swelling) at the lady's place in Lower McDonald.

I think that shot might have been aimed at me. Fortunately I have a soft spider for old commies.

Good point with the cats horrie. Change of heart re the mossies. Without them I'd have to blame the dodgy liver on something else.

I see the MM says global warming on balance may be a good thing. I suspect he has been snorting the communion wine again. Parts of the world are becoming uninhabitable.

has reached over 30 degrees for several hours on each of the last several days in Launceston; we normally don't get this until February

rain is forecast to spoil the weekend

Victoria is tipped to get a full summer's rainfall in two days. Has been 30+ here too with high humidity. 

Reminded me of living in the Chip Central nursing home. 

No doubt the unusual pattern in Lonnie similarly reminds Lardy of his times in Qville.

I want Sir MM to take on the challenge of living on a Pacific Island challenged by rising sea levels for his summer hols.
