You know I'm down to the dregs, when I'm talking about the weather!!!
Here in our fair country of Australia... it is DRY. With a capital D. We had very little rain last winter, which meant that we were running out of water, come Summer. We are on "Water Restrictions" and can only water the garden once a week, among alot of other rules! I just didn't water the garden at all. I only have a little flower patch. That now looks like a crusty patch! I want to conserve water - so I lost a couple of plants? I'd rather give my kids a drink!
Anyway, we did get rain last week - 4 solid days of rain - it was wonderful! Australians all over, welcomed the precious resource! The garden got a REALLY good water, and although our reservoirs won't be full - it definitely would have helped. And the farmers would be tickled pink, as they were forecasting they needed rain by the end of April, or they wouldn't have any crops at all!
So we had rain. And it got colder. And I thought - good'o, winter is coming. But no. Today I'm back in tee shirt and capris. It was windy, warm and humid! Troppo! Literally! My sinuses are going bonkers!
Yes, I do like the warm weather... but truly, it needs to get colder - and we need MORE RAIN! (I'm having visions of next summer, our whole family bathing out of a 10 litre bucket of water, once a week!)
I'm starting to think, we'll be living the movie "The Day After Tomorrow"!!!
Note to self: Maybe I want winter to come, coz then winter will go... and I'd be alot closer to Mini?!!!
