January 7. Day 7. It's mad

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a real thing and apparently suffered by almost 10 per cent of people living in areas with long dark winters. Yes, it has now been scientifically proven that people do suffer winter depression.
Now it is time for scientists to turn their attention to what I am going to call MAD short for Muggy Affective Disorder. Seriously, the oppressively hot and humid conditions of recent days have been enough to turn even the most passive creature into a prize winning, A Grade, grump puss. You would have to be a quite mad not to feel just a little bit hot under the collar.
Thank you weather gods for the storm last night which meant that this morning everything and every body was just a little fresher and more pleasant.
At Roma Street Parklands the birds had even taken to sunning themselves again, an activity which in recent days would have cooked their goose. Still, I don't think I'm sticking my neck out in saying this reprieve will only be short lived. There's a lot more MAD weather to come between now and the end of the Queensland summer. It;s no wonder birds migrate.
