Strong winds bringing hot and cool air but forgetting the rain. Cooler during the day so easy for out-side work. Branches down and as trees are discarding leaves and branches, barrow loads of mulch gathered. A long shower would be a celebration.
Walked out at 6 am and enjoyed day break through the gorge. Toured the valley on the mail run with Jayne yesterday. Creeks are running low. Water falls are trickling. Time to stop drawing from the creeks for domestic use during drought, tanks to gather rain water should be mandatory. Large areas of poisoned camphor laurels pose a fire risk as they dry out. 8 ks from here. Gravel road recently graded. Dust a huge problem for near-by houses or walkers like me as a vehicle passes.
Japoticaba in fruit.
