Ok so I exaggerate but at the moment it feels a bit like it. Every November this happens.... it blows like hell and buckets down. On the one hand I'm glad I haven't put everything out yet (as half the lights would now be in strewn across the neighbourhood) .... but on the other hand i'm getting bit concerned as to when i can set up the lights. There doesn't seem to be an end to this weather in sight. Forecasting 140km winds tonight so it'll be interesting to see if the lights I have put up on the roof are still there in the morning.
