When I awoke this morning, it was to fog moving into misty rain. It certainly appears that autumn is here although it was a damp summer for this area anyway. Yesterday a big wet front hit the state, and dropped about 40mls over the course of 12 hours. Much less than a friend on the south east coast has received however – 48mls in one hour! He’s ready for white water rafting in his suburban back yard! Another place a bit further along received three times the monthly average in under 12 hours.
No wonder my local ants were busy expanding the size of their nest….. I’d say they were making preparations for the change in the season. Note how high the entrance is – and this was on a high section of land as well!
