from the local paper: Mini tornadoes hit hundreds of homes across Sydney and the Illawarra region overnight, there is flooding across NSW. One resident of north Sydney's Kirribilli described seeing a "funnel cloud" that struck just after midnight, bringing down trees in the Willoughby Street area, damaging cars and ripping off the roof of the Kirribilli Sailing Club. The wind "sounded like a freight train," and the cloud was between 50-100m wide.

It's raining in Sydney. Thunderstorms, heavy soaking saturating constant rain. The cat has come in, wet, and the skies are just pouring bucketloads of rain.

Flood warnings in NSW, two flood related deaths already, and sheets of rain pouring across the state.

And, thinking of rain..

My Country

The love of field and coppice
Of green and shaded lanes,
Of ordered woods and gardens
Is running in your veins.
Strong love of grey-blue distance,
Brown streams and soft, dim skies
I know, but cannot share it,
My love is otherwise.

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me!

The stark white ring-barked forests,
All tragic to the moon,
The sapphire-misted mountains,
The hot gold hush of noon,
Green tangle of the brushes
Where lithe lianas coil,
And orchids deck the tree-tops,
And ferns the warm dark soil.

Core of my heart, my country!
Her pitiless blue sky,
When, sick at heart, around us
We see the cattle die
But then the grey clouds gather,
And we can bless again
The drumming of an army,
The steady soaking rain.

Core of my heart, my country!
Land of the rainbow gold,
For flood and fire and famine
She pays us back threefold.
Over the thirsty paddocks,
Watch, after many days,
The filmy veil of greenness
That thickens as we gaze ...

An opal-hearted country,
A wilful, lavish land
All you who have not loved her,
You will not understand
though Earth holds many splendours,
Wherever I may die,
I know to what brown country
My homing thoughts will fly.

******

In case anyone doesn't know my general location, I'm in Nottingham, New Hampshire USA -- about halfway between the New Hampshire/Maine seacoast and the mountains. Southern New Hampshire. Half hour from Portsmouth, but with slightly different weather (inland and uphill).

I moved here to come to a "warm climate"...since I was born in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (ayuh, I'm a Yooper) and grew up in Milwaukee. If you can put up with a Great Lakes winter, just about anything else is moderate. Coastal New Hampshire and coastal southern Maine sure is compared to Wisconsin.

Sleet and ice and freezing rain and cold temps in the high teens and mid 20's(for here, anywho) Friday, late warm-up to almost normal temps for the rest of the weekend, normal on Monday and Tuesday, then 2 days in the 60's and 70's (F), yesterday the wind commenced to blow, thunderstorms and the wind howling, thunderstorms or no (was very glad it is winter with the leaves off the trees). Temps started dropping some this afternoon as the wind began to significantly ebb, and now we are in for a chilly but not unseasonable weekend. Was planning on driving up to Mom's in WV for an overnight this weekend, but three days snow and low temps forecast for the northern half of the journey. Latitude and altitude both in play.

On the otherhand, the winds have scoured out the atmosphere and now it is is a chilly night with an unusually clear sky. Orion right overhead just now.

In Sydney, it's been so changeable. we've recently had meltingly hot weather (45.8 = 114f) followed by WILD winds, massive storms and days of soaking rain. we're lucky, in other parts of the country there have been raging bushfires followed by flooding.

this week we had a few pleasant sunny days, I woke up this morning to a brown/grey sky, and wild winds sweeping through the garden. trees bending this way and that, the sound of the wind in the
weeping lilly pillies is like waves crashing on sand.

and now for a cup of tea :-)

Juneau, Alaska: Freezing rain yesterday and this morning, on its way to rising temperatures.

But odd weather. For about 10 days, up until four days ago, it rained, the billowy snow all disappeared and the temperatures got to the low 40sF.

Bears out of den were sighted- scary for all, because there is nothing for them to eat, except for humans' garbage. With the segue to snow and cold weather I imagine they heaved big sighs and returned to their dens.

A man with his snow machine fell through the ice in the lake in front of our biggest local glacier last weekend and just barely made it out alive- sprawled full length he made his way through the breaking ice until he reached firmer surfaces. His snowmobile remains submerged.

Rumncoke, when one lives in a very dry continent (not cure if it's the driest - I think Antarctica may be be drier) then rain can be a blessing. As Ebbie says, parts of the US would welcome rain too.

Rain?

It's all come to the UK - where it is now raining. Not so much again as taking up where it left off last time.

Usually we don't need to encourage clothes to dry, just hang them up for a day or so, or this Spring, an hour or so, but now hanging things up just keeps them damp, so I have to put everything through the tumble dryer and then store it over the radiators or it feels damp when put on.

There was a frost on the bins when I took rubbish out a week or so ago, but all the rest has been a lot of rain and a few clear days.

The Spring this year was very dry, the apple trees which were loaded to breaking last year produced a few small cracked fruits this Autumn. The fruit and leaves fell off early. The strain of drought then deluge might have been too much for them.
