What comes down must go up!

A foggy morning in Yass after nearly 75mm (3 inches) of rain in 36 hours as the humid dampness rose into the atmosphere..

It's also the time of year when tiny tree spiders, minute little arachnids, lay their eggs on strands of web and let the westerly breeze carry them off across the countryside until they eventually settle on something they can grip on and hatch out. Nothing dangerous about them but it does leave a lot of cobwebs to clean up!

But eventually, the fog lifted to reveal a clear morning:

and ideal for a stroll in Banjo Patterson Park and a read of the Saturday paper.

I can't wait for Summer again, even though it has been an extremely good Winter here. I hate Spiders, but they live in our home
