Spring-like winter

We've had a few cooler days so far this winter, but most have been sunny, perfect blue sky and no rain for weeks.

Today set a new record for July with 26.5C in Sydney, which is amazing warmth for the depths of winter!

It didn't quite reach that here on the NSW Central Coast but it sure didn't seem like winter!




It'll cool down next week, the met bureau says, and we may even have some rain on the way. The garden needs it.

Perfect rainbow


Clear sky to the west as the sun sets, clouds to the east but no rain that I can see, but a perfect rainbow has just appeared.

America and gun deaths

A doctor in New York, an American, goes on a rampage with an assault rifle in his hospital.

One dead, six wounded, five critically, before the killer killed himself.

The mayor of New York thanked God it wasn't a terrorist attack.

WHAT?!

A reflection of the American attitude to firearm deaths. Totally acceptable if it's American on American. Perfectly normal, it happens to thousands of them every year.  But totally unacceptable if it's terrorism related.

I wonder if the victims thank God they were shot by a countryman...
