IT'S WET AND WINDY IN PERTH TODAY
Yes, it is very windy here today but we've had some wonderful rain which is so badly needed. It's quite cold (15ºC = 59ºF) and I'm loving it. I truly am a winter person and love to rug up to keep warm whereas during summer I never seem able to cool down enough.
We've had about 20mm of rain at our place and the forecast is for more rain and showers during the coming week. The garden is literally lapping it up although, unfortunately, so are the weeds. Guess you have to accept the bad with the good.
Our farmers need rain so much and I am hoping that these fronts will reach inland parts. The last we had in W.A. swept right across into South Australia so hopefully there is enough strength in this lot to do the same.
I am so fortunate that grey skies don't cause any depression with me. I certainly do thrive in these weather conditions although at times my poor old joints tell me I'm a little barmy. Strangely enough change in barometric pressure seems worse as it I believe it affects the fluid in the joints and that possibly causes more pain than the cold as long as you keep nice and warm.
River, there could be some more wild weather heading your way before too long but I hope, if it does, it is less troublesome than the last lot.
