The storm that got away.

The storm that got away, it headed off in the opposite direction. Come back I cried, to no avail.

My storm chasing this month has sadly been a disaster due to those uncooperative clouds. Maybe if all the Cycle365ers clapped their hands the ‘Butterfly Effect’ might generate some weather here. Today is still hot at the moment (36C at 11am) after a 38 celsius yesterday which is the ‘old century’ as we call it here. I still ride my bike around but I get out of bed really early and home before the heat and UV rays strengthen.

Remembering Gregblood’s frying pan trick with boiling water in the cold I thought I’d try my own. The egg was semi fried after 20 minutes in 38 celsius, the doggies enjoyed it.
Watering the garden in the heat, I find it therapeutic. Do you like my blue bike?
Summertime means lots of fruit in season, like these mangoes. I enjoy eating the fresh grapes, watermelons, figs, avocados, nectarines and peaches, to name a few.
Christmas decorations in the city light up at night for the children. Love the balmy summer nights.
More Christmas decorations.
I made it to Port Beach.
Not many swimmers, might have something to do with the recent shark fatality.

My ride early this Sunday morning to beat the heat. Up before the sun rise.

Anyway, try to stay warm all my northern hemisphere friends and I’ll try and stay cool. And lastly, don’t forget to get out on your bike and take lots of photos.

I live in the hills just east of the city of Perth, Western Australia and I've loved cycling all my life, From riding to primary school when I was 8 years old to cycle touring as a grumpy old man. Cycling is freedom on two wheels and I love getting on my bike at any opportunity.

    “It’s hot enough to fry an egg!” was the first thing that popped into my head when I read this. If you ever want to waste a little time on the Internet, google that phrase and you can read all sorts of articles on the subject, including of course from Bill Nye the Science Guy.

      Yes, I did find Bill on a video, where he seemed rather adamant about climate change and set a globe on fire. 😉

      I’ll check out Bill. I reckon on a 45 Celcius day the egg cooking would be more successful. Mind you I wouldn’t go outside unless I was showering myself with a hose.

    Nice ride and photos, and I do like the blue bicycle, very nice garden too!

      I like to keep the garden around the house green and lush. Helps if a bushfire comes too.

    Nice garden, nice blue bike, nice fruit, nice beach but just a tad too hot… Oh, well, I guess you can’t have it all. But the 5 a.m. ride sounds like a good solution.

      Just need some mountains and castles, would then be perfect.
