Looking out my window with 6" of snow on the ground, having to leave for work shortly and no street plow or my driveway plow has shown up yet, this looks very pleasant. Guess I'd better get out and start shoveling.

Normally we get to about mid twenties before the sea breeze kicks in, like the Fremantle Doctor without a fancy name.

Yesterday and today it has been in the thirties and no sea breeze.


When we get a northerly we got the hot dry wind from the centre of the continent and it can reach the forty degree plus mark. Thats when we get the really bad bushfires.

The figures are all in Centrigrade.

Many year ago as part of trying distance ourselves from our English colonial past we moved away from teh Imperia mesurement system and went Metric.
