    I am not anti gun. I am anti-home-armory though. I have a gun permit in CA but no gun as I accidently shipped it to the Philippines (now my wife has a permit for it there)

    Australia has also never been invaded by enemies with guns (we did have air raids and naval torpedo attacks in WW2)

    Living on an island nation has a few perks.

    Yeah, same here. We only have a 90 day season too and had a super wet (aka snow/ice/rain) May then a hard freeze two days in a row the first part of June. We usually get our first "season ending" frost at the end of August (tho I have managed to get things thru it to gain another few weeks) with tapping frosts earlier. So far this year we have not hit 90o once and only reached low 80's a few days. We have been getting the miserable humidity as well, Us northern folks just aren't used to that!!! Florida can have it back!

    this just a baby typhoon.

    July is our wettest month - we get an average of 15" of rain in july with 22 rainy days. Feb march and april only have 6 rainy days

    We have already had our months quota of rain so this year is particularly wet

    as far south as we are - below the 10 degree line - it is extremely rare for our area to get hit directly by typhoons and even when we do, we are well protected by land mass and a mountain range they have to cross to get to us

    now saying that, I just replaced the roof so it will probably be a banner typhoon year to test it out
