Like I said, Australia always seems to be swinging from bone dry arid spells or stuff like this cyclone that seems to dump all the water they did not get the year before in just one day??

I am sure they have good weather once in a while, but that won't make news right??

Take all this excess moisture in the air and start rejuvinating some of the desert areas of the world.

I have been living in Sydney for 30 years and never experienced anything like this ! It has been raining in and out for quite a few months now. No summer this year ( because of water and rain clouds), and it is already autumn.

Yup, hoping for people's safety warrants a thumbs down. Nice page, JT.

Anyway, people are so stupid to relate this to something normal, because it is not. Suggesting that a mild winter that affects so many in Melbourne or Sydney means everyone else is okay is not the case -- 99% of Australians live on the coast, so if things are messed there it's a whole lot worse than another nation where a coastal storm is wreaking havoc.

I'll get right on that for you, Fadamor. Got a contact where I can buy 5,000 miles of Schedule 40 pipe?

Hitoli mentions "no summer this year" in Sydney. I live in Tennessee, where we've had precious little winter this year and tornado season apparently is started early. Strange weather all over.
