In late breaking news the Australian Weather Bureau chief, Ivor Storm announced today that after years of pining for the good old days, the Bureau had given up attempting to predict weather.

“Gone are the days when it was reasonable to expect summers to be hot and dry and winters to have an acceptable level of crispy whiteness.  We give up” he said, “We just give up”.

” I mean, here we go again… hottest Spring on record … two days into Summer, it’s fuckin’ snowing in Jindabyne.  How are we supposed to cope with that ?  No bastard is ever going to take us seriously again.”
