Okay, I know that I was complaining that we needed rain to fill our 20,000 litre tanks to the house, but maybe I should have whispered. Beware of what you wish for, isn't that the saying? This week Adelaide was buffeted by record wind squalls, torrential rain, hail and even snow in the foothills. Take a look at what used to be the esplanade footpath at Moana Beach! The ocean was whipped into such a frenzie that foam covered the nature-strip and road.
On the bright side, my rainwater tanks are full, and there have also been some glorious clear days to lure me out on the motorbike with the Ulysses Club (that's code for old farts club). There's nothing more wonderful that spending the day in a tracksuit and slippers, heater on, and no need for an excuse to stay inside and write.
