    Looking good:)

    From that forecast, it reads:

    60% chance of not raining Friday

    50% chance of less than 1mm, (or none at all) on Saturday

    80% chance of no rain Sunday &

    90% chance of no rain on Monday.........;)



    (My alternate BOM optimistic forecast:p)

    15 to 20 kph winds for the Toy racing may upset some of the finer racing machines??

    Cool nights are perfect for sleeping in the kombi! Much better than sweltering hot.

    Started from home with a clean Kombi but detour via Baw Baw region and an unmade road fixed that! Bit of rain since then and mostly clean.

    After the too dry Jan/Feb we've just had, and reading the BOM weekly forecasts for any rain, on a daily basis, which changes to "no rain" either the day before, or even on the day.......

    I've come to accept that their week ahead forecast "Chance of Rain" (when you really need it), is just to give us all hope.....:(

    Pity my brother in law has recently retired, he was the meteorologist based there at Williamstown airport. He could have given us a minute by minute update.
    After surviving Sawtell Bus Stop two years ago and the very recent weather event here a shower or two sounds perfect.
    The company will be sunny and bright.

    At home we only have tank water and rain is looked at as very necessary.

    We also run on tank water, but once the tank is full, and the grounds are well saturated, we start to want some sunny days for a break.
