Hahaha Yeah I am a softy. smile Can see the big bank of cloud towards the coast. Hopefully it stays there as the pool needs to warm up.

Spoke too soon about winds lightening. Blowing pretty strong already.

We get strong gusts around 9-9.30am, then they seem to settle down for the rest of the day. So far.

Pretty blustery down this way this way too 28...some showers early this morning but fine and coolish now..

Ron was that you playing silly bugga's on the croc trap at Gordonvale the other day..?

Simmo ,they are the nicest breed of milker for sure and being smaller makes them easier to handle as well...I have very fond childhood memories of getting up at the crack of dawn to help my Grandad milk his little jersey on their farm....nothing quite like a glass of fresh ,warm real milk....

Hahaha cheers guys. She sure is a cutie.

Can't wait to start milking her Scott. I think she will be real easy to milk too as have gotten her use to her udder being touched. Every morning I go out and put some homemade insect repellent on her and she stands there not moving a muscle till I have finished. Hoping she will be able to be milked in the paddock.

Really need some rain again soon. Things will start browning off if we don't. A couple of 10-20mm days before the end of the month would be nice.

Ron, I don't even want to think of the breeze, hammering through for 6 months. At the moment it's quite pleasant as the vegetation (grass & weeds) is still relatively green and not much dust, yet. I dread the willy-willy season. Hoping the few small shrubs at the bottom fence might be big enough to give them a hiccup at least.

Quite a few serious blasts of wind overnight, what is the driver for these blows out of the blue?

According to Bill O'Connor from BOM on the ABC a few days ago, sometimes you get 50-60 knot winds at upper levels ( I seem to remember 500-1,000 ft but dont quote me) and you get "mixing" down to sea level, hence strong gusts out of nowhere

Cheers for that answer, certainly come out of nowhere.

The days of many showers it seems - a bit of guts in some of them

Yes I think I heard along the same lines, mixing occurs more at some times than others. Something like that.

Pretty cool today, max 27c or so but most of the day around 24c.

Blowing a gale west of Mareeba and out west past Lappa.
By the time I got onto the gravel road there wasn't enough wind to blow the dust away.
Winds at Chillagoe are just intermittent breezes in comparison.
