The amount of rain that fell in brisbane this month is less than it gets on average in each of Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb & Mar - so get used to it!

Meanwhile we had our coldest Sep for 16 years.

Should have stayed in the UK until it sorted itself out.


I thought Oz was getting hotter and drier due to global warming.

It's all Polly's fault! She asked me to bring it before we came out.

I don't mind short bursts/downpours and then days of sunshine.

How come they call it the sunshine state? 'cos every time I've been there it's been raining...

got it well planned, drink at the start, then shop in the middle while sobering up, drink again at the end.......sober up on plane back here, straight back to work the next night


And if the Great God of Volcanic Eruptions could come out to play again

I'm enjoying it while it lasts....this weeks storms are the start of the chaotic bit of the year, when I can go whole shifts without even turning on the laptop, never mind getting to look at BE I emerge at the end of shifts like that with terrible shakes, not cos of stress or lack of alcohol, but from BE withdrawal

That's highly unlikely (read impossible) as we're not travelling at the same time as you, so don't even bother with travel insurance.
