What is with the weather??

They call this latatude the Roaring 40's. I think it needs a name change. Maybe something like the Guessing 40's or the Unpredicatable 40's. The name Roaring, only tells half the story here in Tassie. Just over two weeks ago we experienced 100km winds with 33 degree temps. This resulted in the most amazing site. Glowing bush fires lighting up the Eastern shore. The relentless winds spread the fires quickly. With three days of this craziness, the rains finally came, temps dropped back to normal and the fires were exausted.

Then....the snow came. The headlines in the paper read, "Tassie Defies Global Warming". It is getting colder as we go into spring. Strange plac.
