|A yacht makes its way in to Cairns this afternoon|
On 21 January it will be 14 years since I moved up from Canberra. After a few Wet seasons I developed my stock answer for when the heavy rains of the Wet would arrive - around the tenth of January. Three days out from that date I'm thinking it will be a bit later this year. Showers are forecast over the next week, but it's not expected to be heavy.
I've heard a couple of people say that they are looking forward to that first heavy downpour, and I am as well. I think I'll go for a walk when it comes.
