If it is raining we'll just have to get in our 4wbies and go for a drive. Rain=no dust :)

Weather forecast is :(


Nearest Weather station is Edi Upper, near Whitfield:

http://www.weatherzone.com.au/vic/north-east/tolmie

Thursday:  clearing showers, 19
Friday:       sunny, 22
Saturday:  mostly sunny 23 (High channce of rain, but only < 5mm)
Sunday:    mostly sunny 24

Remember, you will be in North East Victoria, not south of the Ranges, Melbourne.  ;D

Benalla is forcast to be 30 degrees on Sunday.

The supposed cool change/wet weather last friday/sat. with snow down to 1400m was a non event.

Another good link is "Strathbogie" on the attached clickable map.

http://www.bom.gov.au/vic/forecasts/map7day.shtml

I think we will have more issues with smoke fron fuel reduction burns limiting the stargazing. Forests Vic are due to lite up a few FRB's this week.

Can we have fires? Much of NSW had a total fire ban last week, and it was pretty dry down your way too.

Fires are allowed in the fire pits provided, and we will also have a bonfire area.  Vic Fire restrictions have not yet been introduced, they usually come in sometime in December.

An interesting article in our local paper over the weekend, The Border Mail, regarding the re-burial and funeral arrangements for Ned.  I scanned to article but photobucket is down at present.  http://www.bordermail.com.au/story/424925/neds-coming-home/ is a link to the article.  It appears the local paper doesn't know how to spell the word gaol either...  I know that most people go with the american spelling but the name of the place should be spelt the correct way

 :cheers:

A long time coming Dave, whatever opinions people hold of Ned, he deserves a proper burial.

One of our tour visits will be to the Greta Cemetary, where many of Neds contemporaries (Freinds, family  and relatives)  are interred.

Oh how I wish  :D Something tells me LB might not be too impressed.

To console myself I am going to go and play around Newnes on Sunday. Trying to talk my parents into a second hand Paj for their next car, show them what you can see when you can get properly off road.

Short showers just after 9:00AM.

No wind, overcast, high cloud.

Worst of it over up here.  BOM Yarrawonga Radar clear back to Swan Hill.

WE are about 40 min downstream from you and the wind just died down in the past 5 min.  Has been windy all day.
