HI guys...'A very Happy New Year' biggrin  to all......Hope 2018 is the best!!!  The farm at Oberon NSW is getting rather hot in the 40's dry now and without any significant rain the dams are turning into mud holes.   Had a visitor on the back verandah today... a brown snake sent him packing. Managed some great photos of the full moon rising over the farm.... beautiful.  Gwynnie  floating.gif(5) Moon rising over the farm.jpg

"Yep" She's getting a little on the warm side, here in the West as well,

It's only into the mid 30's , but the dreaded humidity is here with a vengeance once again,

it's been running around 30-65 % over the last week and it looks like it's here to stay for some time "UCK, UCK, UCK" !!!

Sure wish we had bought refrigerated Air Con, instead of being Conned into the Evaporated type, totally useless this time of the year,

Hello all,  Left the the 45 degree heat & a the million flies of Western NSW!   I am heading to Tassie to cool my heels for the next six weeks  !!!  Going Via south Coast NSW & stopped off to see friends at Bermagui for a few days before catching the Ferry to Tassie.  They were in the middle of a wonderful storm with lightning, thunder  and welcoming rain.  Today the sun is shinning again.. so great to be in the greener, cooler & wetter climate for a change instead of hot dry .  Gwynnie  floating.gif

Monday 29th Janruary 2018 - beautiful blue sky this morning, with a prediction of 37 - it was very steamy, we had to go to the shops - left the hatch up in the motorhome, door open, then one of the windows of the car won't go up - yep - the 70% likelihood of a storm came through - by the time we got back in the car, and home with the driver getting drenched, was pelting down. Now changed, dried off and dried the floor, put a garbage bag over the window, but the seats are wet anyway. Not to worry.

We are near Avoca in NW Victoria, just off the Sunraysia Highway. Ground is that dry the water is not soaking in very well., so quite a few puddles and slippery spots around.

Hi, it has been raining the last 3 days. we r in a caravan park paying a fortune n all we can do is read or use the internet. Tv works but the rain is too loud on the roof to hear it. Went to monrepoe to see the turtles. No rain until we got to the beach. Just as well we had tracksuits n raincoats. But all things considered, we had 3 grandies sleep over one night. we had an amazing night seeing a turtle laying eggs, n were woken next morning with a grandie at my head saying nanny, mummy n daddy r here .Precious. Rain or shine, Love life.

I do believe it was described by my husband, speaking to a friend in Nevada (where it had just snowed) as 'sweaty butt crack hot' the other day. I'd say it has been more 'rivers of sweat all over, then no sweat due to dehydration' hot. We're between Mitchell & Bollon QLD.

Extreme heat and severe storms in Queensland.....

Monday February 12, 2018 - 16:30 EDT

 

Some places in Queensland had their hottest day in four years on Monday as heatwave conditions intensify across the state.

As of 3pm EST, the highest temperature in the state was 45.4 degrees at Thargomindah. Rolleston (42.7C) and Rockhampton (41.0C) were both having their hottest day since 2014. This is also Rockhampton's hottest February day in 46 years.

Brisbane's apparent temperature at 3pm was 36 degrees, which was three degrees higher than the actual temperature due to humidity.

The heat will linger over Queensland for most of this week, producing a severe to extreme heatwave across most of the state.

Today's heat is also helping trigger thunderstorms in the southeast and warnings were issued shortly after 3pm for damaging winds in parts of the Wide Bay and Burnett District.

Visit http://www.weatherzone.com.au/warnings.jsp for the latest storm warnings.
