Just When You Heave a Sigh of Relief.........

........ the Gods laugh at you.

Three days ago saw the last of thirteen consecutive days in which the temperature exceeded forty degrees.

As of ten minutes ago we had received 100mm of rain in thirty six hours.

I just hope it doesn't stuff the grape harvest.

It will.

Some growers around Angle Vale / Virginia have bee picking through the night.

Virgara, right next door to me, haven't begun.

I reckon the Barossa will turn out some pretty huge Shiraz, but low volume.

Thanks Adolf, but I work 6 days a week. In fact, if you buy lotto, mags or newspapers, you may already "know" me. There's 20 mil for grabs tomorrow night. :-)
