    Default Extreme Weather :(

    Is it just me or does our weather seem to be getting more & more extreme. I am currently bunkered down in the middle of our house because it is blowing an absolute gale outside. The house is shaking almost & the roof sounds like it could blow off Earlier today we had a rather bad dust storm and we have had so much lightning that there are bushfires everywhere around here. It's now starting to rain too. I am starting to think more about the weather since we were flooded in for a while over christmas (around a month) then 2 weeks later the river came back up and just went down at the end of last week. Our river was 1.42m over our bridge coming into town and basically we were a little island. Is hasn't been easy and now we have more rain on the way. The river systems are already backed up. I know that we had nothig compared to St George, Mitchell, Roma etc... but it's been really hard. So with more rain on the way I wonder what it will bring this time? What is it like where you live?

    I will put up some photo's of our floods.

    We just had a down pour
    Raining still, thought it would hail for sure. Notice that summer hasnt really hit this year, not here any way, we usually get a few days over 40 but been under 35 and most under 30 degrees... Almost similar to Darwin weather but I'm in the hunter valley... Wonder if it has anything to do with ( dare I say it) pole shift... The poles shifted a bit after the big Japanese and new Zealand earth quakes, it's a normal occurrence, they gave it a bit of a jolt. The sun rising 2 days early in (was it green land) the northern hemisphere... I'm loving the cooler summers

    I have also noticed the cooler summer our hottest day here so far was 43 degrees, normally January & February bring about 48 degrees. That is an interesting theory though, does make sense Hope your weather settles down a little

    We're sort of used to it here though but yeah it came up a fair bit higher this time. It has been hard because nothing can come in by road when it is above 1.2m. We have a "Flood Truck" that takes cars, people & mail/food across that bridge but this time it went higher and also there were so many rivers up nothing could get through anyway I will find a pic of the "Flood Truck"

    "Flood Truck" Photo

    (Yes that is a 4x4 on the back of a truck going through just over 1m of water - It goes for about 1km)

    I don't ever remember it being so hot lol but even though it has been "cooler" than last year I still think it's way too hot

    We've had back to back La Nina's. They'll generally bring a wetter Summer in the tropical regions, and cold snaps in the northern hemisphere. It's highly unlikely La Nina will hang around for a third year, so weather patterns should settle down to more 'normal' activity.
