This post is for people who like looking at hazy pictures taken through finely scratched and slightly distorted aeroplane windows at around 30,000 feet. 🙂
I’m sitting here in my study at 0714hrs and enjoying the sound of the rain which has become familiar over the past week. My rainwater tanks are now full and I’m wondering — as I often do when it rains like this — whether I should have shelled out for another proper 4000 litre polyethylene or colorbond thing when extending the original installation instead of improvising with 2 IBCs and a 800 litre bladder. It was a lot cheaper, of course, but I’ve sacrificed substantial capacity.
Sydney’s post-equinoctial “gift” from the ghu of weather was a dirty orange dust storm with gale-force winds, with gusts up to 100kmh. I could taste and smell the stuff even with all my windows and doors closed, and many people apparently reported breathing problems. Certainly my asthma played up a bit, but as I was indoors all day it wasn’t as bad as it could have been.
