Just five days ago, it was 37° – not unusual for this summer. We’ve averaged over 30° for the last three months and have seen virtually no rain since the middle of June.
But in the last couple of days, autumn has…what does autumn do? Spring has sprung, autumn has…fallen? No idea, but it seems to have happened. Today didn’t get above 20° and was cloudy & damp, following a storm and rain – actual rain – last night. The forecast is for more over the next few days. But fair enough, it is late September after all!
Much as we love the sun and the heat, it has been really nice to see some rain – you actually appreciate it when you haven’t seen any for a while. Everything looks cleaner and the colours are brighter after having all the dust washed away. Everything smells wonderful too – it must be damp eucalyptus as it reminds me of Australia.
Everything is still going well with the house and the builder hopes to be finished in 3 weeks. Whether the electricity will be connected by then is another question, but it shouldn’t be too long after that. Fingers crossed!
