Nice here today. 30. Sun and a bit of breeze (funnily enough from the SE ... wonder why).
It's still slightly surreal to me that summer is not necessarily something to look forward to weatherwise.
Our aircon blew up this year (bloody geckos) and it wasn't in the immediate budget to fix it. Luckily being 1000km or so south of Marinerville there was only about 3 or so weeks where it was particularly noticeable.
We heading off northish next week (School holidays) so hoping it's done and dusted by then and no damage done - both selfishly and in genuine hope everyone is ok.
Forecast is that we're getting pretty damp here though: after Debs heads inland she's heading south dumping about 400mm in the next 8 days on us.
That'll teach us to pray for rain. (Think we had about 50mm all summer when usually get about 350.)
A bit of NDRRA funded restoration works wouldn't be bad for the industry though
Can't believe some aren't evacuating in the face of a 4m storm surge. "Oh yeah. That'll be up to our second floor windows but we'll stay ... "
