The weather/news people have been screaming all day, literally all day long, about ice. "Ice is coming, ice is coming!!" They used the phrase "Travel, of any kind, is strongly discouraged."

We'll see.

Yeah we're in the middle of a 'weather event' apparently. And there was I thinking it had merely snowed.

Talking of which: it could fuck off for me now. Pet owners are being warned about the dangers of rock salt and antifreeze. Antifreeze spilled onto the kerbside, and rocksalt spread on the roads gets onto their feet and when they lick it off they can be poisoned.

So it's washing paws every time we come back in now. Can't even create a salt free zone for quick wees as I don't have a garden. As soon as we step out of the mews and into the lane there's rock salt everywhere. 2-3 walks a day, plus a couple of 2 minute trips out back, rinsing and drying paws now 4-5 times a day.

Waste of money. I and Mum have tried them with various dogs for various reasons over the years (Pilau had a problem with his pads sometimes, Wellybobs had eczema on his toes, Dan cut his paw open and needed it kept clean and dry on walks) and they have always come off.

In my part of the country we're expecting up to 400mm of rain over the next few days. some areas have already had over 600mm (that's a foot and a half of rain for those of you metrically challenged).

Anyway, I hope we get a lot of rain. It's very dry here. The wet season has not even started, and we it should have started almost 2 months ago at the latest.

Rescue was completed successfully.

*Coastal Queensland and Gulf of Carpentaria regions only, rest of the country still hot, dry and probably on fire.

Not much rain here so far, but it's on the way. Very slow moving system, which is good in a way, but probably would be better if it'd do its thing then bugger off a bit sooner.
