It may even have been a touch of hysteria!! As you know we over here in the western part of this great island have been wanting rain badly since early November. In that time, at our own place, we have had about 10mm, no more. Occasionally, the Bureau hints at the chance of showers which I think is done to stop us all from becoming ultra-depressed by this long, long hot summer. Some areas have had some worthwhile showers but they've been very few and far between.
Today I checked the forecast for the coming week and Wednesday's forecast really had be in stitches. It read:
"The chance of showers before sunrise."
Now they are promising us a chance of showers that will possibly fall in that wonderful place 'somewhere' before most of us are out of bed so we probably wouldn't know if there was any precipitation or not.
I just had to share this 'cos I couldn't keep it to myself. : )
