This summer in Perth has been quiet mild, however on the East Coast they have had to put up with some rain, thunderstorms and then catastrophic heat conditions. Then up North, its the usual wet season weather pattern.
Me, while I like the heat in Perth, bought a new air con unit so we can survive, I do miss the wet season. While it can get hot, humid and sometimes unbearable, the glorious rain, when it comes is cooling. big gloopy drops of water, which just refreshes everything.
Up North, when the wet hits, it makes everything green, yes there are times that you can’t get through roads due to flooding, but the boabs start blooming, the river is warm, we don’t use our air con much when it rains, we sit outside taking in the coolness, which cuts through the humidity.
