CC, the cold blast sounds a bit chilly.  Rug up..
Marina, good arrangement with Chooks. Yes, it is hard to cut down fruit trees. We have an Apricot and  Almond trees that both need removing.  If you have any Apple tree wood, once dried it is the best for smoking food.
We have had a few lovely sunny days. Not too hot.  I love Autumn.
Today, top of 19.

Such a contrast in weather Denise, you would have enjoyed that lovely Sunday.  Our weather has been warm and consistent throughout the whole Easter break and that must be some sort of record here.
It was a very busy Easter weekend for you and DH Marina, you would have been grateful for the help of his friend which left you free to keep their tummies full. I hope the chooks can keep both you and your neighbour supplied with eggs, shared custody will work well.

What a lovely arrangement with the chooks Marina.
Your weather sounds lovely Chookie, and yours not very pleasant CC. We have had temperatures around 32/33 over Easter and then about 1mm of rain each day to keep the humidity high. Today is 29 and blue skies. Much better.

We kept the sawdust from the apple trees, Chookie, for next time we smoke something.

Marina, keeping the Apple tree sawdust is fab. I attended a Smoking workshop years ago. It is probably the best hands on experience of my life.
Lovely Autumn day again today. 20 max.

Our weather has been very much the same, 27, 27, 27 and tomorrow will be 30. Then we appear to be having 2 cyclones visiting us. I've been reading a lot about the Fujiwhara effect, when 2 cyclones come near each other. It's been quite interesting.

DD and DH are taking their cars to a display on Sunday, hopefully they won't get washed out. If there is any sign of hail DD won't be taking her Mustang.....its too precious.

I wouldn’t blame her, I don’t think I’d even want to take myself out in that weather cookie.

Cookie, your weather pattern does look interesting. Hope it’s not too severe.
Quite cold here.  11 max today. Getting the winter Woolies out.
The garden is loving the rain showers.

It will be interesting to see what happens with the weather. All our news bulletins were going on about it, but now they have the death of the Duke of Edinburgh to talk about.

This morning it was cold.  It was about 5 but the weather forecast said that if felt like -2.
Had the heater on all day.  Good soup weather.

Cyclone Seroja has created her havoc and is moving rapidly inland and off the south coast now. The area I grew up in seems to be have pretty badly hit. Kalbarri really copped it. Farms lost shed rooves and in some cases sheds and house rooves. Not fun for them at all. I remember sitting under the kitchen table as a little kid and watching a mill being pulled from the ground and go sailing over the shed that was being shredded. I don't think I believed Dad when he said it would be all ok. ;D ;D ;D ;D

It sounds terrible cookie and with your experience as a child I wouldn’t have believed ‘it would be all OK’ either.

Cookie, it is no wonder you don’t like the windy weather.

Port is very useful when it is very windy.
