Here , in Australia, it is Summertime and for most of us that means the rainy season.
The problem is, for 10 years we've not had a real rainy season. We've been drought stricken almost nationwide.
Our dams have been close to empty,
we've been limited to 3 minute showers,
we've let our gardens die through lack of water,
and farmers have watched crops fail when the rains didn't come and reduced their herds when there was no grass for them to eat.
Well I can confidently say the drought has broken.
Dams are overflowing.....
Roads are cut .....
Towns are flooded.
with businesses inundated...
and heartbreaking damage to homes.
Humans are not the only ones to have been displaced from their homes!
(It's called a yabbie!)
On the other side of the world you have snow, snow and more snow causing all sorts of problems.
But it's nearly Christmas so we're mopping up here and you are bunkering down over there.
Getting ready for a happy family time ( we hope !)
So here's to a cool Aussie Christmas
and a warm Northern Hemisphere Christmas
