    EC is looking good for 17th March to break down this High-pressure domination. Just so far away though...

    Nasty leaves from the street trees...Had to council the Bears cos they thought of torching a few piles raked up by Ubi.
    Burning leaves in the street ...that would have been a sight...
    Smoking out the parents in SUVs assisting the kiddies to their educational institutions...
    On the other hand they could have been all raked into gutter to await the weekend rains...down the street the biomass goes and into the storm water drains another interesting possibility.
    Nasty deciduous street trees.....and no sooner does Ubi rake them up only to find a whole lot more the following week.
    Perhaps a dedicated effort with lawn mower with a catcher....ohh Autumn and those bloody leaves....:thumbs:
    The god dam futility of the operations to keep the nature strip neat and tidy....

    The transition from Summer to Autumn in the BM's and Western Sydney reminds of a work colleague who has a melt down on Friday and rocks up to work on Monday morning like nothing ever happened. A few warm days to come through March sure but its certainly been a big change from only a few weeks ago.

    However its all relative to what your used to but I do have some bags of 'crete to distribute if needed................:)

    Must have me confused with someone else , I love the cold , colder the better. I am a child of winter. Not so keen on the hot stuff though.

    Looks like the clouds are bubbling away over the city atm. Looking out over the bay from docklands they're looking darker and more foreboding by the minute...

    Some awesome storm activity in Dubbo this morning. Not to windy and nothing destructive just lots of very close lightning strikes and house rumbling stuff. More building up around here now.

    Nice, this is teleconnection stuff. I have a hunch that a changing SAM, rather than +ve or -ve coupled with the right dipole is important to early season success.
