Images of a Big Island

Rain, Rain, Go Away!

Weather has been totally crap over here in coastal Queensland for the last few days. It just won’t stop raining at all! In the last week we have had over 400mm of rain here in the Whitsundays and I forget the last time I saw a shadow.
Funny thing is that the Qld Government is funding a big tourism campaign to advertise that Qld is open for business. What with everything else that has happened over the last few months, this latest bout of wet weather is lousy timing if nothing else! We just keep saying under our breath that ‘the sun will come out!’ If you say it enough it will happen……..won’t it??
This image is just to show you all that the sun does shine in the ‘Wetsundays’ and when it does you wouldn’t be anywhere else!

    Nice clean image Tim – gotta love those sift pastel hues.

    Pity about the timing of the rain mate, but it will change and the sun will re-emerge, everywhere has it’s nicer times of year and the whitsunday certainly does and won’t be far off !

  4. Send a bit to South West WA if you like Tim. As Jamie said it’s been pretty dry over here. Everywhere else in WA has had loads.
    Great pic!

    • Thanks Dave. I heard on the radio today that Perth had 62 days without rain, I think we have had about 10 days in the last 5 months without rain!

    Hey Tim,
    You’ve been pretty quiet on here for a while… I hope everything is ok in your neck of the woods.
