and again....

Forgot what rain looks like.

Might move to Qld or Tassie. I can't hack this continuous heat anymore (warm winters included)

February has been very mild IMO in Melb. Not much rain but not hot. Only a few days in the pool. Looking forward to a few 30's.

It's been terribly dry for the last 18 months or so. Even mid 20s gets too hot now (steering wheel says it all). Northern suburbs in Melbourne don't get seabreezes and I wake up to still air every morning including winter (frost). Feels like Saudi Arabia up here.

Agree, as someone who loves a hot summer the last 3 weeks have been disappointing

Could do with some rain, tanks are empty and garden is suffering.

Agree David. Grass is all dry and white-ish now. I feel sorry for the farmers.

I wonder how hard the G (even Kardinia Park) might be even at season start. Hopefully no-one cops a knee injury because of this.

As an old bloke still playing cricket who has sailed through the season virtually niggle-free, I've pulled up insanely sore the past couple of weeks for no other apparent reason than hard grounds.

Not good LTRTR.

Why do we and Adelaide always cop the **** from these fat-arse high pressure systems lazing about in the Tasman for days?

Yeah, I reckon the farmers would be suffering at the moment. I don't tend to use mains water for the garden but we are having a slight exception at the moment for the plants we recently bought.

The grounds would be watered but they're still going to be damned hard with the lack of rain at the moment.

Still no rain forecast.

How's Yin going down in Gippsland with these terrible bushfires?
As mentioned in the JLT thread we have favoured discretion following a kind offer from my daughter to put a few more kilometres between us and the fire for a few days.

Thought about this last night.

If Global Warming raises temperatures and cause sea levels to rise, and also results in less rain and more drought, more places will build desalination plants and take water from the ocean, thus countering the effect of the rising sea levels.

Crisis over.
