Change In The Weather

This morning’s exercise around Mount Gambier was a bit cooler.

It wasn’t breezy, so not too bad.

A sign of things to come.

Not Quite

Mount Gambier’s record maximum is 44.1 degrees Celsius. (In 2014, I think I was doing a graveside commital that afternoon)

Today we’ve reached 44.0.

Frosty Reception

Outdoor walk in a spring frost in Mount Gambier.

Lulled into a false sense of security after my time in Queensland I didn’t wear my gloves.

It took twenty minutes after I got home for proper feeling to return to my hands.

Winter in Mount Gambier is cool.

Cold really.

And not just for cats.

For everyone.

Snow and the Sahara.
Not usually thought of together.
