The build-up seems to last longer and longer each year. I must be getting old! It has never knocked me around like this. The summer rain has previously arrived by now, and the few showers that we have had, have only steamed it up. I do have to say that the few showers have made the place look very green and luscious.
Should be a nice and green traveling across the Flinders and Barkly.
Batton down, Queensland, for Cyclone Owen has done a u-turn and is marching back to you. Owen has picked up our rain clouds, is picking up speed and power and on his way.
Good luck to you all. Stay safe !
