I don't believe it.

This year there was no nice and steady warming. Cold then hot. Very fast and I am still trying to acclimatize. Like going to Mexico in the winter. Get off the plane and boom, heat and humidity. Not complaining though just noting.
Back to the yard, soooo much to do.

I find every year here is the same.
At some point when we are past being sick of winter, someone flicks a switch.
There is never time to get used to the change.

Well, at least the forests and bush are getting some watering.

Next map will be released June 7th (June 1st data). This clearly shows the difference a year can make. This has truly been a winter and spring to remember.

Hoping the middle of July shows a big improvement. Nice weather and lower water levels.

Today is going to be decent - 25 degrees - sunny with cloudy periods.
