Summer's here Time for fun

We've just had a week of summer weather and too welcome it, it felt like the whole country was thunderstorm after thunderstorm day after day.





I'd just spent a week in Darwin
, the humidity there is something too be experienced.... shirt is wet almost constantly

I'd heard of a condition , 'Mango Madness', where people go a bit silly because of the humidity up there

Quote:
A new study has confirmed what people in the Top End have long known - soaring temperatures and overcast skies make tempers fray.

Surgeons at Royal Darwin Hospital who analyzed fracture rates found that so-called "mango madness", - a period of extreme weather tension that triggers violence as the wet season hits - is not just a myth.

An analysis presented at a medical conference in Hong Kong today showed fracture hospitalizations were 40 per cent higher in October and November when the Northern Territory had high temperatures with constant cloud cover and no rain.
After being there I can understand why
