Notice the five day forecast for Sydney and part of NSW doesn't make pretty reading. Bit like the scoreboard actually.

We actually had some rain today. Not enough to make a difference to my tanks but at least the grass stopped crackling when you walk on it.

Plenty of snow overnight here in Lincolnshire.

Couldn't help laughing this morning when I let the dog out. He was bouncing around the garden trying to avoid having his dangler dragging in the snow Very Happy

I wish for snow, ATM. It's all the most treacherous of ice round here... Have to walk like you're shitting yourself or you're down like Frank Bruno v Mike Tyson.

Yes, my husband and son are stuck in Rockhampton. They went there yesterday to pick something up and now they'll probably be there all weekend. I wish I had gone with them yesterday. Sad
