August is not a nice month anywhere I reckon. September is always my favourite: in the tropics there's a return to humidity in the air, and in southern climes it's *starting* to feel a little bit warmer.

Reckon that this is our coldest year for a while, already - last year I don't think we dropped below 11 degrees around town.

I don't mind a bit of "cold" as long as it doesn't last for too long. Any as long as it doesn't get windy. grin

A relatively balmy 5.9c this morning. So glad I bought a feather and down quilt this winter.

Nothing quite like feather and down quilts. My other two winter lifesavers are merino clothing and ugg boots.

About 40 years ago, I had a real Eiderdown with feathers from the Eider duck. You can still get them, but I believe they are about $1000.
Takes a lot of Eider ducks to make one, and I read somewhere the greenies and do-gooders are the cause of the price hike with all their bleating.

A fair bit of action in Tully today around midday...search parties and the chopper buzzing around on the mountain..a few people wondering why she wasn't reported missing till yesterday, despite the fact that her belongings lay around untouched for days..wondering if she could survive a week with temps down to 9-10c...wondering why she would even climb the mountain by herself..but a great result in the end..she is the longest lost Ive heard of the backpackers and locals getting lost on Mt Tyson...the next longest I know of was a girl up there for 4 days..

Surprisingly yes. Was 0 in Ravenshoe the other day I am told. I did not pack enough winty wear. Kuranda is quite pleasant though temp wise.

The last 2 days have been bearable after the cold air finally pushed through.
I'm sure it won't be long before the next one heads up from down south.

They may be better off with a bit of rain, in past years they've been worried about heat stress.

Last night was lovely. Warm enough I didn't have to pretend to be a polar bear with all the rugging up. Cool enough I only needed the thin blanky to keep me more than warm enough.

I like this weather.
