Yeah mate we still have an area that is too wet to mow...where springs pop out of the ground...they haven't done it for quite some time though...

I love it here but I really really really miss having rain.
Don't think I've ever complained about Chillagoe itself, just the lack of rain since Yasi. This has been a good wet season so far.

Finding it strange, though, that our daytime temps are well below the coast.

Well its certainly a lovely afternoon on the Cassowary coast as well..

Thankfully its cooled off a bit from the 40.4c registered at Sth Johnstone mid afternoon...

Only 39c showing on the Thermometer here now...

At Sth Johnstone, if that 40.4c is correct it seems not only is it our highest recorded February temp but also equal with the highest recorded for any month along with 29th Dembember 1971....edit so I see it hit 40.5c so I guess hottest ever day officially recorded...

We have a couple of Canadians staying with us this week....when they left home a couple weeks ago they tell me it had been down to -40c .that's quite a temperature differential...they sure do like to immerse themselves in our creek here...



Record for S Johnstone was just broken on 27/11/18 with 42.2c

A brief SE breeze this morning between about 0530-0600 knocked the highest AP min on the head.

I must say, one good thing about this last round of heat,is that it has knocked the Mozzie population around, same for the sand flies.
There was stacks of them around not long after the last lot of rain.

Yeah I'm hearing you mate...Fortunately those annoying little knats/midgies/sandflies only lasted a few days and then the mozzies came to visit for a few days at the beginning of this week but they are gone now too thankfully.....


Nice day today but the SE breezes and showers are forecast to pick up during next week...must be the remnants of Oma coming to visit, is it...?..A bit of rain and stormage will be most welcome after this hell week..
