When I woke at 7.15am, it was already hot. And windy. And humid. No thanks, I’ll give a ride a miss today. As the temperature rose and the humidity made all the dead rats in the walls stink, I closed up the house and worked on the modules for the online course I’m doing. Boring- but let’s get the course done while the weather is crap so we can take advantage of cooler days come autumn! I wrap a wet towel around my neck, turn the fan onto me and get to it.
It got up to a very humid 37C before thunderstorms popped up and dropped the temperature back to 28C. We got no rain here, just thunder, wind and lightning. However, the temps stayed in the low 30s for the rest of the afternoon. Hmmm… maybe we can get in a ride.
So, a look at the radar indicated we could probably get in 20kms, so off we went. We are waiting on a front to come through – in the meantime, all the humid air off a tropical system in Queensland is sinking down this way and giving us the humidity and 20-30kph northeasterly winds.
