About 6 drops, looks promising but nothing comes from it, just heat and humidity, the wind has picked up over the last 24 hours though as the cyclone slips by. Solar panels could do with a clean.

Oh yeah it was cranking yesterday in Roebourne. I had to tell the young fella working with me to go and sit in the aircon for half an hour before he dropped to the ground, as I could see he was literally f**ed. It was his first day back up in the Pilbara.
