The hops are on the elm trees, a fly is dying of natural causes on my bathroom floor. I have changed the calendars and started extra cleaning. A little less hot water is needed when showering. There is increased bird activity. 3/4 pants are appearing on the street and jackets are disappearing. The heating is getting a bit of a break at times. A stiff northerly breeze is blowing today, bringing warm air from inland Australia.
It is spring. I just spoke to my mother on the phone and she does not like this sort of weather anymore than I do. It must be in the genes. I feel overly warm and it is only 25 degrees. Suppose I will get used to it. Fortunately the dirty, pollen carrying north wind does not blow for very long.
By my reckoning, weather like this should bring some very needed rain.
