October 19. Day 293. It was a dark and stormy night

 Weird, weird weather we are having right now. Yesterday this mega storm blew in. It let us all know that mother nature is a force not to toy with and then, like a toddler ending a tantrum after making a point, it was over. We were all forced to take the position of the people in the supermarket while the tantrum is in full throttle. All you can do is wait it out. Today was different. It was clear and blue - and then suddenly it wasn't. Fine misty clouds combined with the setting sun to create the type of colours and beauty befit an oil painting. By this time in October it is normally hot, hot hot. Right now it is not, not, not. It's hard to know what to wear when. Woe is me. But here's the thing. Summer will come with all it's Queensland fury and I'll look back on this slightly changeable, slightly unseasonably cool October with great fondness. The great thing about the weather is you can't control it and so it's an opportunity for endless mindless discussion. Safer than talking sex, religion and politics (or Donald Trump who is kind of all three).
