We actually got rain!
Well about 20 minutes worth but it's better than nothing. Everything is so dry here - the grass is brown and dying. Looking out over the other houses around us we could see the mountains in the distance. It's the first time ever I have seen any mist like that creeping over - quite eerie really.
I feel for the people down in Queenstown and on the west coast - they've had so much rain that it's amounted to severe flooding. If only we could spread it evenly over Australia to help put out the fires I'm sure it would be appreciated.
No doubt we'll be back to nearly drought conditions tomorrow, but at the expense of moaning which I hate to do I'm definitely not a Summer person. Give me Autumn or Spring any day - it's difficult at night not being able to sleep with any sheets or blankets with the humidity, know what I mean?
