There and then, here and now

This time last week we were in Noosa.

The locals thought it was cold but 20 – 24 degrees suited us perfectly for four days of walking, biking and reading.

That was there and then.

Here and now we’re back home and the forecasters were right:

It’s not perfect timing for the calves which have started to arrive.

Here’s hoping the forecasters are right that it will be improving by Sunday.

P.S. – that forecast is from YR, a Norwegian service which we’ve found to be very accurate.

    Metservice are all over the place going from 115mm of predicted rain down to 47mm first thing and back up to 61mm now. Moving stock to higher ground a couple of days ago was a good idea though! Living in a lake on top of a hill and telling the ewes to hold on to those lambs..

    Cut off from the road and it continues to hammer. State of emergency declared for the District.
