Dark and stormy weather.

Its been a dark and stormy night here on the southwest coast of Oz. We've had so much rain that our swimming pool has been filled to the brim and our automatic pool cleaner is threatening to climb out of the water and start chasing our two cats Bubbles and Rodney. The day is going to be cold. The wind has blown some fruit form our citrus trees to the ground. Our deciduous mulberry trees had been shedding their leaves as winter takes a hold. A maximum of 17 degrees C has been forecast for today. My darling wife has lit the wood fire in our lounge room to warm up the house.
