malewithatail: Finally drying out up here in the Northern rivers as well, now to see to the bees. At least my arthritis will be gone by tonight from the stings ! No, its not an old wives tale, the stings really do relieve the pain.

spinifex: I just competed another lap of the sun ... that makes 45.1 trillion kilometres traveled. Spinning the whole time at 1600 km per hour. Holy cow. No wonder I'm tired. And dizzy.

Tri-Polar: Didnt think it deserved a thread of its own. Ive been reading a good book with useful information lately. "The handbook, surviving and living with climate change". Information that is useful doesnt always relate to climate change.

A long time ago back in high school, I used to be called the weatherman. I would just look at the sky and accurately predict the weather for the arvo. I could even guess the approx time that rain would drop.
I could look up say say "we'll have a late arvo storm today" or "na that dark cloud will blow over and it'll be sunny all day" Stuff like that and got it right 9/10 times.
These days not so much lol Being in a place where we just got our first rain in 9mths a couple weeks ago sort of ruins it lol. Although I can still tell when soemthing is brewing up just watching the wind and cloud behaviour as well as the ambient temps rising or falling.

In NZ there's no such thing as bad weather , it's just wrong choice of clothing haha as its nearly impossible to predict here on an Island with coasts either side within spitting distance (Auckland anyway)
Barometer is the go, it was the essentially item prior to satellite,and radar. I have priced a few for BoB that also has altitude and temp. I have small cheap Bunnings weather station and a few large stand alone barometers. One can download like 200years of weatherand compare barometric pressure to rain and big storms. Imagin a cyclone hitting without any warning, or you are bugged out and go hunting a low pressure systems comes through, you ade trapped behind rivers etc.. I have done a lot of reading of people going to remote areas and living isolated they all take barometers. Weather stations make good Christmas gift.
