Spring is in the air
FORGET what the calendar says, there seems little doubt that spring is here.
A series of stunning days has the trees looking blooming lovely and swimmers and sunbathers back at the beach.
There is no sign of August's regular winter winds, with yesterday's maximum temperature hitting 22 degrees after an overnight minimum of 10 degrees. But while we are enjoying the sunshine, it might be a sign of bad things to come, with another drought-bringing El Nino predicted for later in the year.
