There's a brand new house being built to the east of us.
Yesterday, the roof was going on... it would've been friggin hot up there with glare off the tin sheets.
I know they use gloves, but those tin sheets would be red hot.

Then, around 3:30, right at the peak of the heat, I checked the weather radar, beauty, gotta storm headed our way
Shit... Shit.. Shit, out with the ladder, and up on the roof i go, to check all the gutters of every and down pipe
The house, the granny flat, the sheds, the works, i'm not gunna miss one drop of water.

The heat was killer up there too, but made sure we were ready to receive.

About maybe an hour later, we got maybe 10 drops of rain...seriously, if you pooled all the drops together, it wouldn't fill a teacup.
The storm just fell apart coming down the range.

Our water supply is just above half at the moment and some wet stuff would've been nice.

Oh well, at least I was only on the roof for 45 minutes.

The roofers next door had it tough, didn't make me smile, but it did make me smirk a bit.

Wednesday night the power went off at 7 PM . The whole town was down . lt should come back on soon ,,,,,,,,,,,, in the heat  The next morning get a text message the power should be on by 5PM .
Sooooo it into camping mode . out with the solar panels to feed the batteries to feed the Engals . The camper kitchen was set up for coffee , a whip around the neighbours  as we had gas . Tried to save the frozen foods
Then 2 fire calls later after having to hand roll the shed door & it was Bloody Hot . The town was a mass of generators & leads for those business  that stayed open . Now we have a Huge genset spliced into the town supply till repairs are finished  .

So after all that l found a few  :cheers: to finish the day with  . Got to love a 12V fridge  :cup: :cheers:

Bit like the United Nations here today.

Going out now, to move the Aussie Falcon, so I can bring in and polish a South Korean Hyundai and Japanese Toyota with products made in China.
The old girls about to go to work in an Aussie Statesman.

We'll head out later in the American Cadillac.

Not sure if it's smile or shake my head in wonder / disbelief ... ???

Saw a car yesterday with a personalised plate "Brexit" ::)

You care so much about it from the other side of the world that you're willing to lash out the lot's of $ for a PP, that'll make everybody else think you're a bit weird ???

Ummm, if you care that much, why not just go back ???

Why, is it you, Edz ??? ;D

Guess I'll have to mend my ways :-[
