Stupid dog alarm is going off. Storm a hundred k away and she forces the back door open to get in. Better than chewing the door frame though.

Maybe.. never know something could come through over winter maybe a day or two of something.

Yeah we have a sandspear. Problem here is everything is beach sand in our area, doesn't hold water .. probably pumping it out and going through pop up sprinklers then going back into the water table lol.

Narrow little storms, good if you get under them. Have heard reports of isolated totals over the past week pushing around 100mm.

I got 20mm today.

It was a lovely day today. Sun was shining. Birds were singing.

I was contemplating some gardening time when my dogs alerted me to trespassers. Young couple walked in to find help. He had decided to drive into the mud puddle in the quarry next door. They needed towing. Luckily for them this middle aged woman has the stuff needed to get them out.

When I got there they are about 10 feet maybe from the bloody deep hole, probably 40 feet deep full of water. Lucky they didn't die today.

Spent the rest of my day and most of my night finding tools for him to fix it enough for them to get home. Hopefully.

So now it won't be till Saturday I get to sit and enjoy the garden.

Yikes bundybear, that sounds like a scary situation!

We ventured out to the beach for a few hours, cracking day out there:

I am lucky to have a lovely neighbour. He was obviously a tad concerned that I had a couple of young sillies at home. Rang in the afternoon to check all was well at home for me then dropped in later just to double check.

I did get a lovely message this morning from the young lass thanking me for 'adopting' them for the day and letting me know they made it home safely even if on the back of a car trailer.

They were really lucky someone was watching over them and they didn't die.

Nothing really to be concerned about, you have a higher risk of being killed by a car.

It was just nice to have someone watching out for me. Not everyone invites total unknowns into their house specially a female alone. If I had thought they were total tossers I would have left them in the bog. grin

My cheeky daughter when I told her I had company said "Well, they will be well fed there". Humpf.

I think winter this year on the Cap Coast will be nothing like last years. Already cooling down now at nights, low humidity. We've had storms, we've had showers, we've had heavy downpours, though no monsoonal floods . But, it's cooled down somewhat from all this moisture in the atmosphere released as rain.

It really has been summer since October 2016. The heat seems to have gone down to NSW /VIC and SA.

Rocky has missed out on the rain in parts, so I'm going to guess winter will be average on the Cap Coast and maybe about the same in Rocky by average i mean nothing out of the ordinary,more typical for that time of year.

I don't remember getting out the blanket in April last year. Last year from memory May and September which normally are the changeover months on the coast where it starts to cool down were still warmer than normal.

Going back 3? years on the coast I remember a 15/16 deg day in winter , 17 deg too during the day and also remember 7 deg nights as well as even Yeppoon still only warming up in late September/ early October not late August .

The other thing I'm wondering, is if we have a long dry spell over the next few months with no rain at all... I wonder if this means it will be hotter .... vs getting say some sort of precipitation over the dry season allbeit small.
